2021 Reflections

IBEW Local 1900 Brothers and Sisters,

I wanted to share some thoughts about my IBEW Local 1900 Brothers and Sisters.

This past year we experienced downsizing at GenOn resulting in layoffs for many of our members, contract negotiations with WGL-Frederick, and at Pepco we continue to work with the company to create training and progression programs that will make our members the best trained in the industry.

Dealing with COVID-19 has been extremely challenging for all of us. Please continue to work safe.

We spend a tremendous amount of time with our co-workers, sometimes working long hours for many days at a time. Local 1900 Brothers and Sisters always answer the call whether due to system emergencies, storm restoration, mutual assistance, often spending many hours away from our families.

Our Brothers and Sisters touch each other’s lives every day. We work together, laugh together, complain to one another, experience successes and failures together.

I would like to respectfully ask that you keep our Local 1900 Brothers and their families that we lost this year in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season.

* Stephen W. Alexander Jr. – Pepco
* Getu E. Habetemichael - Pepco
* Manuel Pardo – Pepco
* Michael Spindler – GenOn
* John P. Steele - Pepco
* Kevin J. Tarbrake - Pepco

Thank you all for what you do for each other and the companies that we represent.

Happy Holidays!!!

Fraternally,
Jerry R. Williford Jr.
