Labour Day in the Kootenays

Posted by Darryl on September 8, 2022

IBEW helped with a successful West Kootenay Labour Council event over the Labour Day long weekend.

A big thanks to our local Labour Council President, Sandy Bojechko, and the help of our many volunteers who helped host a free BBQ with a live local band (T&T Band) and lots of games and prizes for the kids at Millennium Park. Great to be able to host public events and engage with our community to support the labour movement again. Planning for next year already and as our slogan says let’s go “forward together”.

We’d also like to thank candidates who are running in the upcoming Municipal Elections Oct 15, 2022 and local BC NDP MLA’s who attended. Please vote for Labour Council Endorsed candidates in the upcoming Municipal Elections to help ensure labour is effectively represented in our communities!

See who is endorsed in your area at https://canadianlabour.ca/bc-labour-council-endorsed-candidates/ and check back frequently as more are added.

Albany Brazing Training

Posted by Darryl on September 8, 2022

Successful training with IBEW 993 members in Albany, NY, in partnership with Voith preparing for the generator work at Site C.

Great experience and knowledge gained as all were required to cut, polish, and inspect our brazed specimens using different processes as part of the certification process.

We used microscopes and black light to inspect for contamination and practiced many different brazing techniques that will be used on the job…including some entertaining “destructive” tests to ensure desired molecular bonds were achieved, see their microscopic compositions and fracturing tendencies due to the effects of over-heating, re-heating joints, and incorrect applications.
