Have you seen Brotherhood Outdoors on the Sportsman Channel?

11/18/2014 - Brotherhood Outdoors is a unique TV series of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance that showcases the talents and passions of everyday Americans as they set out on extraordinary hunting and fishing adventures across North America.

Throughout the series, dynamic host duo Daniel Lee Martin and Julie McQueen are joined by hardworking union members who are whisked away on once-in-a-lifetime hunting or fishing trips or showcase their own guiding skills by taking the co-hosts to their neck of the woods to pursue their favorite fish or game.

Viewers will follow Martin, McQueen and featured guests up rugged mountains for elk, through thick timber for black bear, atop ocean waves for tarpon, across open fields for whitetail and everywhere in between. Throughout the roller-coaster ride of close encounters, barely misses, trophy catches and perfect shots, they’ll get an intimate glimpse into the lives of these blue-collar American workers—their dedication on the job, their desire to make a difference in their communities, and their passion for the outdoors and preserving America’s outdoor heritage.

Inspiring stories, amazing destinations, adrenaline-pumping pursuits, aggressive fish and stealthy game combine in Brotherhood Outdoors for a series that will have you itching to get back in the woods or on the water.

You can look at their website here.

News about Area Wide Protective...

09/29/2014 - The employees of Area Wide Protective in Indiana will soon get their chance to make their voice heard!

An election will be conducted through the mail. If you run into any of these Future Members - direct them to www.ibewlocal1393.com/awp/.


09/16/2014 - Today a petition was filed to seek representation for Area Wide Protective employees. A majority of the employees have signed "Authorization for Representation" cards allowing IBEW Local 1393 to start the process of assisting these Future Members as they seek a collective voice of reason with their employer. Everyday, somewhere within our jurisdiction, our Future Brothers & Sisters are watching our backs by providing traffic control as our line construction/utility crews are working. It's now our turn to help take care of them. For those of you who do work with these Future Members, please speak with them about the benefits that you enjoy as a union member, such as:

1) A contract between them, and their employer that outlines wages, benefits and working conditions.

2) That contract stops the company from taking things away on a whim.

3) It is their right to seek representation regardless of what Area Wide Protective wants.

What's the next step? The NLRB will conduct a vote of Area Wide Protective employees. Between now and when that vote happens (usually within 60 days) - our Future Brothers & Sisters will likely be facing a storm of opposition from their employer. Scare tactics, lies, and myths are a common occurrence during this time. Remind them to stay strong and let them know that the 2600 Members of IBEW Local 1393 will stand with them.
