The IBEW International is asking for all locals regardless of division to help stop this new rule. The Department of Labor is currently accepting comments on whether they should implement it. IBEW President Lonnie Stephenson has personally asked Local 2154 to submit comments via this website so that the Department of Labor knows that we oppose this dangerous change. They are asking that at least 50% of our members submit comments, so please do it right now. Below I have included some instructions on what you need to do. Thank you in advance for your help in defending our apprenticeship program.
