I just wanted to take a moment to say Happy Birthday to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers who today are celebrating their 121st birthday.
In 1891, Henry Miller and a handful of others created the NBEW which later became the IBEW.
Henry Miller’s life was tragically cut short, doing what many line workers still do today. He was working a broken line durning a storm, and came across a live wire.
The IBEW put together a short video on the life of Henry Miller the IBEW first President and the creation of the IBEW.
Thank you to all the IBEW members who brave the storms to ensure that we have heat and electricity durning some of our worst weather.
