I am excited to announce that our new website has launched at ibew36.org. This highly anticipated endeavor is exciting on many levels. When we partnered with UCOMM, our intentions were to help Local 36 create a 'brand', but also, and most importantly, to be able to communicate with our members like we never have before.
Embracing this new technology has already made a difference. This is the 4th edition of 'The CONDUIT' this year. The e-newsletter is a great medium by which to inform you of important issues, benefit opportunities and upcoming events. In addition, we are able to utilize text and email blasts to get important election information to our members instantly.
We are expecting the new website to be a continuation of the same type of transparent, informative correspondence. On the website you will find links to other union and company resources, helpful links to
articles and blogs, contacts to your reps and officers, a calendar of upcoming union related events and more!
Please encourage your colleagues, if they haven't done so already, to update their contact information using the following link: ibew36.org/newsletter. We are aiming for 100% participation from our membership, so spread the word!
Below are instructions on how to create the app-like shortcut on your smartphone. I encourage you all to do this. Our new website also has a photo and video gallery and news feeds from the National IBEW, and from the AFL-CIO. There is a larger labor movement out there beyond our Local and its important that all members know that workers are fighting back all across this great country. So enjoy the new website, give it a look and encourage your fellow Local 36 members to take a look as well.
