Message from Business Manager Don Daley
It's official, we have launched our union's new mobile friendly website at ibew1049.org. You may recognize some of your fellow Local 1049 members in the new banner images. Many members answered the call to pose for images on our website that place our union in a positive light. We hope to take more in the near future. I want to thank you all for participating - you all look great! The top navigation on our website has links to news from myself, political action and general news. There are also links to sign-up for this newsletter, an organize page for the non-union to visit and learn how to organize a union in their workplace, a calendar of events, an about us page and a Youth Council page. The new mobile friendly website also looks great on all modern web browsers, loads quickly and reads easy on your mobile devices.
Below are instructions on how to create the app-like shortcut on your smartphone. I encourage you all to do this. Our new website also has a photo and video gallery and news feeds from IBEW tweets and news from the AFL-CIO. There is a larger labor movement out there beyond our Local and its important that all members know that workers are fighting back all across this country.
So enjoy the new website, give it a look and encourage your fellow 1049 members to take a look as well.
Adding an app-like shortcut to your smartphone is easy, simply figure out if you have an android or iphone and follow the instructions in the image.
Please note: These steps vary depending on the age of your device, because there are so many different types we included instructions for the most popular (iphone 4+ with ios 7+ and samsung galaxy s4 and s5). If you find these instructions did not help please do the following. Go to google.com and search "your device brand and model (example: lg g3) add website shortcut to homescreen".
