Life Saver Award presented to Fred Sidoti

On February 2, 2016 IBEW 827 Steward and member Fred Sidoti was working at the Garden State Mall in Paramus New Jersey. While Fred was taking his lunch at the food court a frantic mother screamed her baby was choking many other onlookers seemed unsure of what to do, a mall supervisor called over the radio to alert security that the infant was not breathing. Fred sprang into action and began to administer CPR while the Paramus Police and Emergency personal were in route. As he continued with this lifesaving technique, food that was lodged in the baby’s throat came clear and the baby began to breathe again.

After the Police and the EMT’s arrived they treated the infant and transported the baby to the local hospital for further observation. Fred’s actions were believed to have saved the child’s life! Fred is a HERO and proud member of the IBEW.

For this, today he received the IBEW Life Saver Award.

CALL CONGRESS NOW TO OPPOSE MEDICARE CUTS!

It has been reported that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Republicans are prioritizing the dismantling of health care for millions of Americans—and that included Medicare. They think they have a mandate to destroy Medicare, despite the facts that poll after poll shows Americans oppose cuts to their earned Medicare benefits.

PLEASE dial 1-866-828-4162 NOW to call your representative and let them know you oppose any efforts to cut Medicare benefits for millions of Americans!

Ryan’s plan, if implemented, would make seniors pay more but get less, plus it would raise the Medicare eligibility age.    We can stop this from happening – there already are some Republicans who are getting nervous about supporting Medicare cuts – but only if we put pressure on our representatives to do the right thing.

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES NOW AND TELL THEM YOU WANT THEM TO EXPAND, NOT CUT, MEDICARE BENEFITS.
