Rally to Support IBEW Members at Phillips Lighting

Myles 5-12-18 rally

IBEW 2222 Business Manager & T-6 Chairman Myles Calvey


A rally was held on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Phillips Lighting Plant in Fall River to support the 160 IBEW members who will lose their jobs when Philips Lighting closes their Fall River facility and moves production to Mexico and Canada.

U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey, and U.S. Representatives Joseph Kennedy and Bill Keating were among those who attended the rally and called on the company to reconsider their decision.  “You don’t get to walk away with millions in tax breaks and then turn around and spit in the face of your workers,” U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said to the crowd.

IBEW Local 2222 Business Manager & System Council T-6 Chairman Myles Calvey reminded the crowd that our votes have consequences, and reminded the union members present that we need to support politicians who support organized labor.
