    The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers has created an opportunity for our younger members called the RENEW Initiative. Reach out and Engage Next-gen Electrical Workers (RENEW) was established to encourage younger members to become more involved with our union and our Labor Movement.

    “The mission of RENEW is to inspire the next generation of IBEW workers to become active in their local union by focusing on issues important to younger workers, providing education about the IBEW and the labor movement, and fostering relationships with members and local union leadership.”

    Brother Ryan Cocke is planning a Meet and Greet on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 7 pm at the union hall. Additional information can be found on Local 8's Facebook page or by calling the hall.

    Retiree's Club

    Local 8 Retirees get together monthly to share a meal, socialize, play cards and plan events throughout the year. Meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of the month, usually in the union hall beginning at noon.

    A potluck luncheon is included and the meetings sometimes include guest speakers, 50/50 raffles and more.
    Those attending are asked to bring their own table service and usually a side dish, salad or dessert to share.
    Check the schedule for details.

    All Local 8 retirees and their significant other are welcome.
    Call Shirley Streichert for more information at 419-893-8219.

    Reminder: If Rossford Schools are closed due to inclement weather, our luncheon/meeting will be cancelled.
