On Saturday May 17th, PG&E Linemen and Apprentice Linemen competed in the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Lineman’s Rodeo. Four Journeyman Teams and four Apprentices, along with their families and friends, represented IBEW Local 1245 and PG&E at the rodeo, which included 28 Journeyman Teams and 55 Apprentice Linemen from across the western states.
