This year the Local 60 Service Program has been opened up to CW-CE's. Any CW-CE that completes 12 hours in the Local 60 Service Program will be eligible to be reimbursed for one class passed at the JATC for advancement towards their Journeyman Status. Apprentices completing 12 hours in the Local 60 Service program will be eligible for the IBEW Local 60 Harry F. Katz Scholarship.
These are the scheduled "Service Credit Events" so far:
Education ZOOM Saturday September 17th, where we will learn about the IBEW pattern By-Laws and look to the future in their application to the Local.(4hrs)
Local 60 Picnic - October 21st and 22nd. All kinds of volunteers will be needed for this great family event. (12 service hours)
We are excited to see the 2nd year of the implementation of the Local 60 Service Program. Last year saw many new faces get involved with their Local, and some even stepping up to serve as officers of RENEW and marching at the Cesar Chavez March. Some members helped pick up rocks, while others helped put on a fun Easter egg hunt for Local 60 Kids and their families. We had a Super Bowl Party, a "trunk or treat" event and multiple "Education Days" where our members were able to ask important questions and everyone present left with some knowledge about the Union or procedures that they didn't have before. We put on a "Retirees Appreciation Day" (Hopefully this can become an annual event) with the help of people participating in the Local 60 Service Program. We were able to put on a Super Smash Brothers Tournament, and multiple trips to help at the San Antonio Food Bank. We had members show up to put up Christmas lights all over the hall in preparation for the Local 60 Christmas Party. We had a day of building cornhole boards, and helped retirees move heavy furniture. We also saw more apprentice participation at the Local Union meetings.
We applaud and thank everyone who gave of their time this year to better the Local, the Community, and themselves.
Thanks, from the Local 60 E-Board.
