Union Organizer Derek Guy Will Speak at Democratic Women’s Club Meeting April 17

Derek Guy, union organizer for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), will discuss his work as an organizer and the benefits of union membership at a meeting of the Anderson County Democratic Women’s Club on Monday, April 17.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. with pizza and conversation, followed by the program from 6-7 p.m. at the IBEW Local Union 270, 138 N. Lincoln Circle, Oak Ridge.

From the perspective of the IBEW and unions in general, Guy will discuss how union members benefit compared with those in the non-union sector.
