It is with deep regret and sadness that we report the passing of past Business Manager John “Lou” Reid on October 26, 2018. Lou was an important part of the IBEW and we at Local 595 greatly mourn his loss. Lou served his apprenticeship in Local 595, was a prior Alameda County JATC Coordinator , Local 595 Business Representative, later becoming Business Manager in 1993. Lou retired in 2002 but remained a vital and much-loved part of Local 595. He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him but especially by his loving wife, Carol and his daughters, Shelly and Cindy.
2019 Women's March
Our Education Rally last Saturday was a “home run”. The solidarity from our affiliates tells Oakland teachers that they are not alone. My message was simple - we shouldn’t have to “rally” for something as basic as better schools. It’s time for real action. Teachers should not be the only ones who go on strike for kids...parents should join them by keeping their kids out of our underfunded classrooms. Send us your Red for Ed pictures!
As big as last Saturday was, this Saturday’s Women’s March will be bigger. Women have taken over the House of Representatives and now bully boy Trump is finding out what that means. Join me this Saturday...let’s March as loud as we voted!
Join us at the 2019 Women's March - Oakland on Saturday, January 19th
Meet at Lake Merritt Amphitheater at 9:45am. Look for the Alameda Labor Council banner!We encourage all members to come out and make their voices heard.
