  The strength of the IBEW is determined by our union density. As union density declines, so does our ability to secure beneficial wage increases, benefits and working conditions. In "right to work for less" states like South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska, the three states that IBEW Local Union 1250 has members in, the task of keeping good contracts and having high union density is especially difficult and requires that we constantly strive to maintain our membership levels. Most of our units do very well at maintaining membership levels, but some have dropped to less than desirable levels. Each of us as union members, has the task of asking our fellow workers to join the Local Union and help maintain the good wage and benefit levels in our contracts. That's why I'm asking each of you to take the time to visit with your co-workers and if they are not members, ask them to consider joining their union to help us keep and improve our union contracts.

CONGRATULATIONS AT&T/Direct TV employees - WELCOME to IBEW Local 1250! The employees have been certified by the AAA and AT&T as a new unit in Rapid City, Sioux Falls as well as many other states acrss America. The employees have just ratified their first contract, putting into place wage progression scales, a comprhensive health care benefit package, a 401k plan with a company match and a pension plan at a time when many across the country are seeing their pensions disappear. The agreements also offer layoff protections and a very solid grievance and arbitration process.These agreements could not have been reached without the hard work and dedication of the Direct TV employees. They travelled across the country to prepare for negotiations and with the help of SCT-3 negotiators, they reached these new agreements. 

42nd Annual IBEW Fishing Tournament

The annual fishing tournament was held on June 9, 10 & 11 at Oahe downstream campground # 3. The weather was hot and the fish were small, but abundent. The Friday night fish fry was a great success, thanks to Local 1959 member Dallas Deranleau for frying up over 12 quarts of fish and to Jeff Johnson for getting them all cut up and preped for frying.  The tournament started on Saturday morning with a 40 mile an hour wind, so it kept most boaters off the water until it calmed down around 10:00 in the morning. Saturday night featured a great ribeye steak feed, thanks to Steve Miller for cooking up his famous beans. The tournament ended Sunday at noon with Local 1250 member Larry Caffee bringing in the winning fish at 2.24 pounds. Jerry Snyder from Local 1250 was second and Rod Brossart from Local 196 came in third. Sunday hosted the awards and door prizes, with everyone winning a door prize and many going home with a couple door prizes. Thanks to the many Local Unions, employers and company's that provided all the prizes.  Special thanks to Steve Zerfas for the previoyus 41 years of hosting this great derby. We look forward to seeing everyone next year at the 43rd annual tournament.
