A union of giving
New IBEW 1049 group is all about helping minorities thrive … inside the company and out in our communities
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new group of hard-working men and women – both National Grid and PSEG-LI – working together to help those in need across Long Island. The group is IBEW Local 1049’s Chapter of the Electrical Workers Minority Caucus (EWMC). The group’s mission: To promote employment and equal opportunities for minorities in all positions; provide assistance and address complaints of local union members; and, motivate and guide minorities to become active in Local Union affairs and in their communities.
Says proud member Anthony Scotto of Gas Customer Fulfillment, “The members of EWMC are community-focused, well-motivated, and have a strong desire to be active where it’s most needed. They really show the true nature of our Union brothers and sisters and the companies we work for, and I’m honored to be part of it.
“If this works inspires one person to do something – anything – for others in need, then we all live in a better place.”
Here’s a snapshot of the good works they’ve done just this year:
