Call us first

Due the increasing number of cases of COVID19, we encourage you to call us before coming to the hall. Most of your transactions can be done remotely for the safety of all.

A Message from the Business Manager

Brothers and Sisters,

I would personally like to thank you for your sacrifices you make every day and especially during this pandemic. Not many people think of electricians as essential workers. The construction and maintenance you do help keep the lights on and our economy going. You truly are essential.

We will soon be going into contract negotiations. In the past we have discussed what changes you would like to make to the Collective Bargaining Agreement at a Union Meeting. Rather than risk the health of you and your families at an in-person event, please feel free to contact me directly at the Union Hall 585-235-1510 extension 1111 with your suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please continue to keep your safety and the safety of others around you a top priority.

A Message from the Assistant Business Manager

To the Brothers and Sisters of I.B.E.W. 86,

We, the officers and staff, hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and are continuing to stay safe entering the new year.

With the Holidays behind us and social gatherings seemingly lessening, it is still of the upmost importance to remain diligent of all safety protocols from proper hygiene, social distancing, mask wearing and a good self-health assessment before going to work or other events.  If we continue to adhere to this protocol, we can help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  With that said, we hope and pray that we can at some point in the new year return to having the Union and Family functions that we all miss and love so much.

Thank you all for the hard work and continuing to do the right thing.  In solidarity we shall overcome!

Very Sincerely and Fraternally yours,

Raymond A. Ryerse Jr.
