IBEW International President Retires!

This is a letter from Edwin D. Hill former President of IBEW:

 

Dear International Office staff,

After nearly six decades of service to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, I am retiring as International President effective June 1.
I came to this decision after much thought and reflection, concluding it was the right time for the next generation of IBEW leadership to come to the fore.
Upon my recommendation, the International Executive Council has appointed Sixth District Vice President Lonnie Stephenson to be the next International President.
I wish Brother Stephenson all the best in his new endeavor. And I ask you to give him your complete support as he moves into his new role.
I also ask you to continue to support International Secretary-Treasurer Sam Chilia. I have been lucky to have him as my working partner and I thank him for all that he does for the IBEW. From overseeing health care to planning for the 2016 convention, Brother Chilia plays an invaluable role in our union – and will continue to do so.
And I have been blessed to have such a talented and devoted staff – both at the IO and across North America. The things I have accomplished in the last 18 years are due in large part to your energy and efforts. I want to thank every last one of you for everything you have done – not only for me but for our great brotherhood.
It has truly been an honor to work with all of you. I wish you well as you continue to serve the IBEW.

Edwin D. Hill
