All IBEW Local Union # 972 Stewards and Members

Collection for Brother Gregory Strauss


Brothers and Sisters,

I need to bring to your attention that Brother Gregory Strauss has been off work due to having surgery.

It has been the policy of this local union to help its members in need.  Therefore, I ask that a collection be taken by each project Steward and also at the Union Hall to assist him during this hard time.

For those of you who do not recognize Greg, he has been a member with our Local since January 1983.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion for your brother Greg.

United We Stand, 


Troy Ferrell

Business Manager

IBEW Local Union # 972




The Fund is asking members to complete this survey to help us ensure Fund benefits are going to eligible participants - for example health coverage and death benefits. We are also asking if members’ spouses have access to health coverage other than through the Fund. We are currently reviewing the eligibility rules as part of our responsibility as Trustees and ongoing management of the Fund.

Having a better understanding of spousal coverage options will help us make a decision that is fair and equitable for our members and the Fund.

We'd like to hear from as many members as possible. It should take only a few minutes to complete.

To get started, visit the Member Dashboard (registration and log in required). The survey will automatically display after login. If you haven’t registered yet, use the “Register” link to complete the process.
