It is with great sadness that we announce the death of IBEW Local 1245 member Nash Mayer. Brother Mayer was a line clearance tree trimmer employed by ArborWorks. He was working on a job for PG&E when he suffered fatal injuries while doing drought-related vegetation work in Mariposa County on Dec. 1.
Brother Mayer was a long-time employee of ArborWorks, which recently became signatory to Local 1245 in the spring of 2016. ArborWorks was operating as a subcontractor for Utility Tree at the time of the accident. Cal-OSHA, PG&E, Utility Tree and ArborWorks are working together on the investigation to identify what happened that resulted in this tragic loss of life.
Brother Mayer leaves behind a wife and ten children, ranging in age from 20 years to just four months old. Friends of the family have set up an online fundraising page to help the family during this holiday season. To contribute, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/helping-hands-for-the-mayers.
