Local 66 is proud to have been the focus of another article highlighting our ongoing Organizing efforts and success stories. We will continue to grow bigger and stronger together as a Union made up of skilled workers from ALL crafts which contribute to the generation, transmission, distribution and maintenance of the electrical grid. **Although the article mentions the Service Area Assistant’s employed at Centerpoint Energy being added to the bargaining unit, CNP continues to refuse recognition of the SAA’s majority vote in an Armour Globe election for Union Representation over one year ago. A vote which legally provided them not only the right to collectively bargain, but many of the same work conditions and benefits previously negotiated by the 1,400+ union members in the bargaining unit. A unit which currently includes only 2 females employees at Centerpoint Energy.
The FMCP proved useful in helping to bring CenterPoint Energy’s service area assistants into the IBEW. Left photo: Two of those assistants pose with Houston Local 66 President Barry Grounds.
