Our Condolences for the Taussig Family.

It is with very deep regret that we inform our Brothers and Sisters of the passing of Brother Ben Taussig.  Ben was a proud member of Local 1212 for 52 years, Executive Board Member, ABM and a vital part of many negotiations.  His loyalty to IBEW Local 1212 is surpassed by none.


God bless and keep Brother Ben.
