Local 420 Heading to Puerto Rico

Local 420 Heading to Puerto Rico

International Union of Operating Engineers Local 420 and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 2150 left on January 13, 2017 to head to Puerto Rico to help Americans still devastated by Hurricane Maria. Local 420 and 2150 sent line electricians to assist with ongoing relief efforts. It has been nearly four months since the hurricane ravished the island and still over 40% of Puerto Ricans are without power. These Wisconsin union workers are employed by WEC and will spend over a month there to help restore power to our fellow Americans.
