“By the late 19th century, the Industrial Revolution had made working life miserable for people around the world. In many places, workers toiled for at least 12 hours a day six days a week in mines, factories, railroads, and mills. Children were especially exploited as cheap laborers who were less likely to strike. Sweatshops locked workers in small, crowded spaces, and punished them for talking or singing as they worked.

Outrage at these conditions galvanized the burgeoning labor movement, which organized strikes and rallies in the 1860s and 1870s. In addition to shorter workdays and safer conditions, workers fought for recognition of their contributions.” PHOTOGRAPH BY BETTMANN, GETTY

Farewell Ed! 05/28/2021

Farewell Ed!

Today, we said goodbye to our Training Director of five years, Ed Huskey, as he embarks on another adventure! Few remember the humble beginnings of the JATC on 34th (and even fewer remember the humblest beginnings prior to that). It’s has been a challenging journey to get where we are today. Ed’s willingness to jump into the deep-end, boundless energy, his passion for people, and a healthy-dose of humor along the way has made every step of the journey worth the while. It is with a debt of gratitude we say “Thank You!” for your dedication and memories. ‘So long’ friend, and best wishes! #soar

Farewell Ed! Onward & Upward!

Please share this video with your friends/family and ask them to share as well. HB 145 does NOT just threaten union JW jobs and/or Apprenticeship, it threatens CONSUMER SAFETY. #IBEW291 #apprenticeship #VoteNo

02/19/2021

Many thanks to those apprentices who were able to help out this morning with the phone campaign and bring awareness to IBEW members regarding HB 145. It's always great to see 1st year apprentices like Anna, get involved on any level - especially a critical issue like HB 145. If you haven't written or called your legislators yet, please do so this weekend and encourage friends and family to do the same. Follow the link to share your thoughts. Our future just might depend on it.

Last week the JATC kicked off a new term! Students starting a new year of apprenticeship were able to attend in small groups for book pick-up, while “in progress” students who started last August, attended class via Zoom. And check out 1st year instructor Miles Whittington’s remote teaching setup! Impressive! #welcomeback #jatc #apprenticeship #neca #ibew291
