IBEW 2154 & 2199 join the team
UCOMM begins work with 2 local unions in Buffalo, NY
UCOMM Communications is pleased to announce that we have been retained by two IBEW Locals based in the Buffalo region. Both IBEW Local 2154 & IBEW Local 2199 have hardworking members who work at gas utility company National Fuels. Local 2199 represents the Customer Service Representatives at 3 different call center and customer service locations. Local 2154 represents the outside Gas delivery, supply and maintenance workers. Local 2154 also has collective bargaining agreements with 3 municipalities in the Western Pennsylvania region. "These new locals are a perfect fit for UCOMM Communications because their membership is spread so far. We can set up a structure where members from all around can get information with ease," says Kris LaGrange. Working with Business Managers Deb Thur (2199) and Eric Hauser (2154), UCOMM Communications began building an image library and designing their website features. The leadership of both unions is diligently collecting membership information so that launch of the new website and communications methods transition smoothly. "With a contract battle on the horizon, and with an eager membership - the timing for both these locals to get a handle on their communications is perfect. I really look forward to working with them." Launch of their new website, ibewlocal2154.com and ibewlocal2199.org is tentatively planned for early October 2012.
