IBEW and NECA Joint Letter on Importance of COVID-19 Vaccinations

Aug 31, 2021

Leadership at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) have released a joint letter urging people across the country to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

This letter is signed by Lonnie R. Stephenson, International President of the IBEW; Kenneth Cooper, International Secretary-Treasurer of the IBEW; David Long, Chief Executive Officer of NECA; and Larry Beltramo, President of NECA.

"The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities all across America. As of today, more than 633,000 Americans have died since the start of the pandemic, with 38.4 million cases overall. This is a staggering loss, greater than the U.S. death totals in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq combined. We are in a war—one of the deadliest wars we have ever seen as an American people.

These numbers are not mere statistics; they represent families and loved ones across our country being torn apart by this deadly disease. We are talking about mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, brothers, sons, and grandparents. There is a tool we can use to fight this ongoing pandemic, and win this war: The COVID-19 vaccines."
