TO our brothers and sisters in Minnesota.

There is a bill working it's way through congress right now that is the largest attack to the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) since Taft-Hartley. Senate File 140 appears to look like a Native American Sovereignty bill, is just a cover for a MASSIVE attack to union workers across the country.

Why is the NLRA the only other act being affected? If this was about sovereignty, why isn't the EPA being included, or clean air act, or clean water act, or.... just the NLRA is included in this. This will prevent thousands of working class men and women from being able to join a union. Please take the time to call Senator Klobuchar and Senator Smith to tell them you are opposed to SF 140!

Below is a simple script to use

Hi my name is _____________ , I live in Minnesota and I am calling the Senator to urge her to vote NO on Senate File 140. This legislation would deny protections under the National Labor Relations Act to workers, including thousands of IBEW members, employed by tribal owned and operated enterprises across the country.

Klobuchar, Amy - (D - MN)
302 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC 20510
(202) 224-3244

Smith, Tina - (D - MN)
309 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC 20510
(202) 224-5641





From Brienna:  On Thursday, January 4, Miles was brought by ambulance to the hospital because he went unconscious…Nothing could have ever prepared us for what we are going through, this is a nightmare.

Brienna Quinn is a Local 110 member.  This is her baby, Miles Tyson.  His story has been on the news on Channels 4 & 5.  Please keep Brienna and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  

A Go Fund Me page has been set up:


The family has also started a Facebook group:   Positive posts only.






Brother Ryan Kelly, a 1st year apprentice, was severely injured in a head on collision on December 29, 2017.

 Ryan is currently in HCMC in a medically induced coma due to the swelling of the brain. Ryan has a long road to recovery but I know that our brothers and sisters will support him every step of the way.

 We all know that 1st year apprentices do not make a lot of money and the financial strain will be enormous. That is why his family has started a Go Fund Me page. It's easy to donate...I am donating $50 and I am asking you to donate in the name of brotherhood and solidarity. Click on the link to give.

 Ryan needs help and we should step up and help him in his time of need.

 For updates on Ryan's condition, his family has started a Caring Bridge site too.

 Say a prayer that our Brother survives and recovers.

 In solidarity,

 Brian Winkelaar
