Amalgamation with Local 272

Thursday, May 7, 2020

The amalgamation with IBEW Local 272 has been approved by the International and is now complete. For those who don’t know, members of local 272 worked at the Bruce Mansfield Plant that is located next to the Beaver Valley Nuclear Plant. The Plant was operated by First Energy and has been deactivated and most employees have either retired, found new jobs within the company or are one of ten employees still working as part of local 272. Those ten employees are working at their ash pond called Little Blue run, they are the ones that will become Local 29 members under the amalgamation. 

We are in the process of changing over all financial accounts and reviewing any documents that we will need to keep as part of this process going forward. They have office space rented in Midland that we will need to clean out and go through and decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

I want to welcome the new members and invite them to attend our monthly meetings once we can start having them again. The COVID-19 makes everything a little bit harder to do but we will adapt and overcome every hurdle we come across. “Your greatest challenges often serve as preparation to help you live and share your greatest purpose”.

Be safe and stay virus free.
