Forty-year IBEW member Richard Ingle has been hired as a temporary business representative for members working in Outside Construction.
“I’ll be checking on crews, letting them know the union hasn't forgotten about them,” said Ingle, who initiated into the IBEW at Local 66 in Houston, but since 1984 has spent most of his time in California.
So far he has visited crews from PAR, Diversified, Wilson, and All Day, among others.
“We talk about safety and the quality of work,” he said. “That’s the only thing we have to sell is our work. So it’s important we take pride in our union labor.”
Welcome aboard, Brother Ingle!
