Our Governmental Affairs Committee is committed to being politically active to ensure that the collective voice of IBEW Local 1049 Members will be heard at all levels of government and at the ballot box. Chaired by President James Cooper, the committee meets once a month to discuss issues relative to legislative initiatives, political campaigns and mobilizing efforts; to name a few.
