IBEW 1245’s Hold the Pull (HTP) and Regulate the Voltage (RTV) Peer-to-Peer Safety Committees met at the IBEW 1245 Union Hall on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 and Wednesday, June 8, 2022 respectively to advance planning for how to magnify 1245’s safety message across our jurisdiction.
IBEW 1245 Business Manager Bob Dean kicked off the meetings, thanking the groups for their leadership and invaluable service, especially in the recent aftermath of the tragic death of union brother Cory Dunne, a PG&E Gas Foreman who lost his life at work, leaving behind his wife, three small children, and extended family and friends.
“There has never been a more important time for our members to rely on each other around safety than now,” said Dean. “These HTP and RTV committee members are the leading edge of that movement.”
As the two days of meetings wrapped up, IBEW 1245 Business Rep Fred Aboud, coordinator of the Peer-to-Peer Safety Committees, declared, “Our committees are getting out there and kicking ass. Our task: to hold the tough, in-your-face member-to-member conversations, so that being safe on and off the job is the popular go-to stance to take.”
