The May membership meeting has been cancelled. We will attempt to resume meetings in June. We will keep you posted.
Brothers and Sisters,
As you are aware, we are going through unprecedented times with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic. IBEW Local 704 is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our members and their families is our main concern.
Effective immediately, the office will be closed to the general public. We will still be answering phone calls and emails (563) 582-5947 and IBEW704@live.com. Tom will also be answering calls on his cell phone (563) 543-4708. We encourage everyone to pay dues by mail or with a credit card over the phone. If you are unable to conduct your business over the phone or email call the office to schedule an appointment.
We have put in a place a temporary procedure for signing the out-of-work list. To sign our out-of-work list please email Shelly at IBEW704@live.com. Include the following items:
Copy of your current dues receipt
Home Local Number
A valid phone number for us to contact you
If you don't have access to email you may sign by phone.
We hope this system allows people to sign the out-of-work list and remain healthy and safe at this unprecedented time.
We urge ALL Brothers and Sisters of IBEW Local 704 and their families to please be careful and take all the proper precautions to stay healthy and safe
United We Bargain, Divided We Beg
