Georgia Power Buys Ad to Honor IBEW Members for Sandy Response

Georgia Power Buys Ad to Honor IBEW Members for Sandy Response

Georgia Power, one of the largest utilities companies in the South, took out a full-page ad in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution honoring the contribution of Electrical Workers (IBEW) who jumped into action and helped out during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The corporation lauding union members in a major press outlet was a reaction to a resolution honoring the members of IBEW Local 84 that the state legislature passed at the request of the Georgia AFL-CIO.

The resolution, which was passed as S.R. 346H.R. 526, reads, in part:

WHEREAS, this exemplary group of linemen devoted their time, talents, and energies to the recovery effort in order to relieve some of the impact of a natural disaster that proved tragic for many.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE that the members of this body join unanimously to applaud the accomplishments of these linemen and to convey to all of those involved this legislative body’s most heartfelt commendation of their efforts in Northeast America following the devastating hurricane on October 29, 2012.
