Heat and Frost Insulators Local 26 Proudly Announces 100th Anniversary
We can take pride in ur accomplishments both past and present in the 100 years Local 26 has been a chartered uniuon. This organization began December 9, 1912 by seven insulators better known at that time as, Salamanders or Laggers.
These seven men forged a union to advance their interests as working men and to develope opportunities for employment at their trade. A spirit of unity was born that still exists today. The Union has preserved through good times and bad times with each new generation of workers doing their part in improving upon the goals set forth so long ago.
Those seven men are: George Abel, F.M. Baetzel, Peter Coakley, B. Harry Coon, Roy Davis, James O'Hara and John Reese.
