On behalf of all Local 459 Members, I would like to wish I.B.E.W. International Vice President of the Third District, Don Siegel a healthy retirement. Don's leadership, passion and dedication to the Labor Movement is an example to all. Upon I.V.P. Siegel's retirement, we are pleased our very own Local 459 member Mike Welsh has been appointed I.V.P. for the Third District.
Local 459 has much to be proud of since it was chartered in 1934, most recently with the appointment of Brother Mike Welsh to Vice President of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Third District. Mike is committed to the principles of the labor movement and we look forward to I.V.P. Welsh's leadership.
