IBEW 569 & Black History Month

February 22, 2022

IBEW 569 celebrates Black History Month! Join us in highlighting the contributions and achievements of our African-American sisters and brothers within Local 569, the labor movement, and our communities. #BlackHistoryMonth

IBEW / International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers: “As we recognize Black History Month, let us never forget the invaluable contributions made by Black workers to North America’s labor movement. Standing up against discrimination, they have been on the forefront of the fight for not just civil rights but economic justice as well. And today, more than ever, Black workers are crucial to building a more robust and bigger IBEW and labor movement in the years to come. Ending systematic racism is inseparable from the goal of economic justice, and Black trade unionists will remain at the forefront of making real the full promise of democracy.”
