Opportunity to Help Two Fellow IBEW 110 Members - Posted November 30, 2023

At this time of the year we are often presented with opportunities to help those in need.  We were recently made aware of two fellow IBEW 110 members who could use our help. 

Dennis and Kim Reinhardt
In August of 2022, Kim was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive and terminal brain cancer. When first diagnosed, she underwent two brain surgeries with difficult recoveries.  They recently learned of a new tumor that required an additional surgical procedure.  Her current radiation treatments and upcoming chemotherapy will require Dennis to take extra time off work to help care for and support Kim.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated by Dennis and Kim.

Frank and Andrea Phillipsen
In September of this year, Frank’s wife, Andrea, was rushed to the hospital following a severe asthmatic attack.  She suffered acute respiratory failure with hypoxia and cerebral edema (brain swelling).  In order to help her lungs heal, she was put on a ventilator while in a medically induced coma.  After surviving the ordeal, she spent several weeks in the hospital recovering.  Frank will need to be away from work to help care for Andrea and their young son while she continues to recover at home.  Any help you can provide Frank and Andrea would be greatly appreciated.

The Trustees of the St. Paul Electrical Workers Vacation and Holiday Trust have authorized the gifting of 2023 or 2024 vacation vouchers to benefit the families of Dennis Reinhardt and Frank Phillipsen through March 31, 2024.
 
If you’d like to make a huge difference to these families by donating some of your vacation vouchers, it’s very easy.

 Simply write “Dennis Reinhardt” or “Frank Phillipsen” on your voucher, and sign it, when submitting it to the Wilson-McShane benefit office.  You won’t be required to take the days off for the gifted vouchers, and these families will be very grateful for your kindness.

Supporting the Phillipsens Posted October 6, 2023



On Thursday, September 28th Frank called the ambulance for Andi to be taken in to the ER because her lungs were not properly working. Early Friday morning, Andi was admitted to Abbott hospital and put on a ventilator. Andi was moved to the Cardiovascular ICU and placed on ECMO. Her lung function started to improve, but then on Tuesday morning they noticed her brain had swelled. Measures were taken to counteract this and as of today, Thursday the 5th, Andi is responding to those who speak with her by nodding her head and she can open her eyes. There is still a long road of recovery ahead, but she is a fighter and is going to pull through.

110's Safety Committee Report June 2023 - Posted June 8, 2023

Recently a member reached out to me to report an incident that occurred on the job that most would never consider when doing a routine installation. After cutting into an existing wall to install a vanity lighting outlet box, the member noticed an abundance of what appears to be used needles and syringes hidden behind the wall covering of a stud cavity. Appropriate action was taken without incident and working with the G.C. to irradicate the problem but it was a good reminder that many unforeseen health hazards can occur on the job that are very difficult to plan for. We wanted to share this with the membership to bring awareness of the dangers of blindly reaching in any space and I have provided additional information on some best practice procedures below on this incident but always be aware of your company’s safety policies and procedures to follow.

OSHA 10 Card Update - Posted May 3, 2022
 

More of our contractor's customers are requiring employees to have an OSHA 10 Card in hand when reporting for work.  If you do not have one or cannot locate yours, consider taking an OSHA 10 Class to get a new or updated card.  Not having an OSHA 10 Card does not exempt you from receiving a strike if you do not take a job.

"To Organize All Workers in the Entire Electrical Industry" - Posted November 16, 2021 

Greetings Brothers & Sisters,

The first object of the IBEW is “To organize all workers in the entire electrical industry in the United States and Canada, including all those in public utilities and electrical manufacturing, into local unions,”.  On his Sunday night show, John Oliver of Last Week Tonight took time to expose companies that use union buster as a strategy to detour us from attaining our goals. 

Take 25 minutes, click on the link below and enjoy a hilarious commentary by Oliver.  It is worth the watch.  




Enjoy!

Local 110 has a group of email addresses that receive notification (bcc) when there is an event that involves one of our brothers or sisters.  This is sometimes good news about a member or family, a picnic or party reminder, and sadly, funeral notices from the paper or family members letting us know.  Many members have requested we share the obituary when we know about it so they can try to attend.  We do not spam you or share your email address with anyone.  If you would like to be added to the group, please click the link below.
