July 10 - Journeyman Linemen Recognition Day
Posted On: Jul 09, 2018

With some assistance from Local 47 and the IBEW in DC, California’s Congresswoman Linda Sanchez had introduced House Resolution 784 last year to designate July 10, as Journeyman Lineman Recognition Day. 

The Resolution request stated:

In every city and town in America, Journeyman Linemen constantly put themselves in danger to ensure reliable access to electricity for all. Risking perilous heights and energized electric lines, they represent a crucial and too often forgotten part of our nation’s infrastructure.

One of those heroes, Henry Miller, was the first elected president and founding member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, one of the largest and most diverse unions in our country. He began his career as a water boy on a government telegraph project in Texas at age 14. Year later, while working as a lineman Mr. Miller became acutely aware of the dangerous conditions and subpar wages faced by these vital workers. He traveled the country to organize his fellow linemen, and when the IBEW was formed in 1891, Miller’s peers chose him to be their leader. Unfortunately, his life was cut short on July 10, 1896 while working to solve a power outage in Washington, D.C. It is in his honor that we hope to recognize all Journeyman Linemen on that day.

As you may recall, July 10th was designated as IBEW Journeyman Linemen Recognition day in 2014 by the California Legislature, largely as a result of the efforts of IBEW Locals 1245 and 47 and our lobby firm, Carter Wetch and Associates.  

Our local fully supports this new Congressional Resolution and encourages others to do so as well.

This day has also been recognized by both the U.S. Senate and Congress prior, although on different dates.                                                 
                                           
Fraternally,
