Kevin Philbin is a 31-year-old IBEW member. He has worked on the Riverside Project in New York City, which was financed by union pension dollars through AFL-CIO-sponsored investment programs. Kevin has been a member of Local 3 since 2004.
Kevin installed the conduit that goes before the concrete port on each floor at Riverside Drive, a 100% union-built property located along the Hudson River on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He and his team of electricians were always on the highest floor of the building; they installed the pipe in place so the wires can be installed at a later date.
When asked about what this work means to him, Kevin explains:
This work was vital to my career, my life, and my family because it provided a stable income, weekly pay that I can count on, great benefits, and great camaraderie.
Kevin is very proud to go to work each day and be able to see the inner workings of a building as it is being constructed, and how a job of this magnitude gets completed properly and safely.
