Welcome UCOMM's Newest Client IBEW 97 in Syracuse, NY!
Let's give a warm welcome to IBEW Local 97 into the UCOMM Communications family! Local 97 represents over 4700 workers at power plants and companies across the great Upstate New York area. They make us proud as our 11th client within the mighty International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. IBEW 97's main goals are to organize electrical workers, assist each other in raising their quality of living, and elevate the moral, intellectual, and social conditions of their members and their families.
"Like our client, the Bay Shore Classroom Teachers Association, we are proud to have been retained by this client for personal and professional reasons," UCOMM's Kris LaGrange said. "Born and raised in the city of Syracuse, growing up as a kid in a working class town, one of the best jobs I remember my parents talk about was in Local 97 working at NiMo [Niagara Mohawk Power Corp.], now owned by employer National Grid. So it's like going home when I visit Local 97 in upstate New York. "Ted Skerpon is a likable and direct labor leader," Kris LaGrange added, "and I'm sure we're going to work well together."
As always, UCOMM will be creating an easy to use website compatible with all types of devices, including tablets and smartphones. In order to enhance external and internal communications for the union, UCOMM will also set up a monthly e-newsletter, text messaging alerts, photo and video libraries, as well as social networks and standard communications services. We're looking forward to a successful partnership with yet another client and IBEW local. Visit http://ibewlocal97.org/ for more information.
