Beat the Heat

August 11, 2022

Brothers and Sisters,

This summer, as heatwaves sweep the country, Local 369 members are answering the call to serve our communities. As temperatures hit the triple digits last month in Massachusetts, energy companies have called in workers to resolve power outages and other emergencies.

We’re proud of all our members who are working hard every day to keep the power on and the air conditioning flowing. Thanks to your work, families across the region will stay safe and cool this summer.

Please remember some of these helpful tips to stay safe while working in the heat:

  • Stay well-hydrated
  • Take breaks in the shade
  • When possible, wear a hat and light-colored clothing
  • Keep an eye on fellow utility workers
  • Wear sunblock and reapply often

From all of us at Local 369, thank you for your dedication to our customers and communities during a time of need.


In Solidarity,

Dan Leary
UWUA Local 369
