Electricians Demonstrating in Holyrood as Messy Dispute inside IBEW Continues
Electricians are demonstrating this hour in Holyrood, a continuation of a longstanding and chaotic dispute within the IBEW that resulted from financial mismanagement years ago.
The International entered and removed several union officers.
Kevin Slaney, vice president of Local 2330, has been one who has long campaigned for action.
IBEW College at Holyrood has been in trust for nearly two years and he says the members just want their union hall back.
He says they didn’t have fair representation. They have around 1,600 members, some of whom have been unemployed in the past two or three years.
