Pages From Our Past
For more than 100 years, members of IBEW Local 48 have gathered, like this crew from Dimitre Electric back in 1965, for a traditional group shot celebrating the completion of a project. This Dimitre Electric crew was particularly proud of their remodel of the old Multnomah Hotel, now long gone from the Portland scene.
Pages From Our Past celebrates our competence, our safety record, and our industriousness and efficiency. The vignettes collected here recount slices of our long proud history. They tell us who we are and perhaps more importantly, where we’re going as an organized community of highly skilled union electricians dedicated to improving the world we live in. It’s our story.
