On Saturday, September 10th, the New York City Labor Day Parade and March will return to Fifth Avenue for the first time since 2019! Tens of thousands of workers representing more than 200 unions and constituency groups will come together in a powerful show of labor solidarity on the 140th Anniversary of the first Labor Day parade in the United States, when more than 10,000 workers marched from New York City Hall to Union Square in 1882.The Parade will kick off at 10am at Fifth Avenue and 44th Street, marching uptown to the NYC CLC Reviewing Stand at 64th Street. The street IBEW 1212 is scheduled to meet is on 45th street between 5th and 6th avenue. The parade will go up 5th avenue (normal route) uptown and we are expected to go off at 11am. We encourage our IBEW 1212 Brothers and Sisters to come join us as we march up 5th avenue. Feel free to contact us at the Union Office if you are interested in joining. Thank you.

Dear Brother and Sisters,
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Brother Richard E. Rich. Richard was a Playback/ EVS Replay operator for many years in our industry. He was initiated into the IBEW during the late 1980’s. He worked at WPIX in the 1990’s before branching off into Live Sports working under IBEW’s Fox Sports and MSG agreements.
We extend on condolences and prayers to Richard’s family during this difficult time.
Rest in peace Brother.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with deep sadness that I inform the membership of the passing of Brother Philip LaPelusa.
While I regret the loss of any member, the loss of Phil is particularly painful. My Brother Phil
was a true friend and the definition of dedication and loyalty. We met at CBS in 1986, where we
began our years as friends and colleagues. Phil was elected to the IBEW Local 1212 Executive
Board in 2009 and served on the CBS Negotiating Committee.
Phil was an Emmy Award winner, whose almost 40-year career involved some of our most
prestigious sporting events and took him all over the world. Phil covered the NFL, 4 Super
Bowls, 27 US Tennis Opens, 3 Winter Olympics (France, Norway and Japan), 11 Daytona 500’s
and 20 NCAA Final Four tournaments.
Phil is survived by his wife Donna, their three children, a son and twin daughters, as well as five
grandchildren. Our love and prayers go out to the LaPelusa Family. Phil will be truly missed by all.
Rest in peace, my brother. Information on the arrangements are listed below.

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing of longtime member, Marian Pitta. Ms. Pitta’s career in the broadcast industry spanned more than four decades. Thirty of those years were spent at CBS, where she worked as an editor for such shows as 60 Minutes and Sunday Morning. We extend our deepest condolences to her family and friends. May God Bless her, may she rest in peace.
