Your Local 459 delegation, led by Business Manager Paul Cameron, attended the 39th IBEW International Convention in St. Louis, honoring our 125-year history and laying the foundation for our future.
The convention also featured a video of Local 459 delegate Tom Whitehead. As many of you know Tom's daughter had been fighting leukemia and thanks to the help of the members from both Local 459 and IBEW locals from across the country the Whitehead's were able to be there for their daughter, not missing a single appointment and helped her beat cancer. You can watch the tear jerking video below.
The members of IBEW Local 459 selected us to serve as delegates to the Convention and we considered it an honor and awesome responsibility. This year, our convention convened with new leadership, a crucial election in the fall and unprecedented economic challenges and opportunities for organized labor. We represented you with dignity and respect and cast our votes in your best interest as we addressed the business of the 39th International Convention.
