Very sad news today with the loss of the longest active member of IBEW Local 1228. Brother Al MacNaughton passed earlier today after a week in the hospital.

Al was a photographer for WHDH Channel 7 in Boston and was known far and wide throughout New England to news crews, politicians and many, many others for his hard work covering news stories.

He was still working for the Station up until his recent illness. Brother MacNaughton has covered so many stories its hard to estimate. But he was always a friend to the other photogs on the scene and never failed to strike up a conversation during downtime on shoots.

Al was a strong supporter of Local 1228 and served as its President for many years. He will be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues.

Rest In Peace BrotherIB ImageIB ImageIB Image


Local 1228 Charity Begins With You

                                  We have developed two very significant ways to give back to the communities where our members live.

The first is “Local 1228 Community Program”.
This is the most direct way for you to be involved in getting donations to a program or organization that is in your community that you either participate in or support.
All you have to do is write to the Executive Board describing the organization and your reason for the ask and we will send a donationciting you as a member ofIBEW Local 1228 and the sponsor of the contribution.

The second program is one that we are very near a d dear to many members of our Local.  Too many of our family members and friends have suffered through the cruel horror of a cancer battle. This disease has taken away careers, caused bankruptcies and torn families apart. But most of all, it’s taken away loved ones, young and old, rich or poor without any warning.

Please find it in your heart to join this battle; to find a cure; to spread the message and show the world that our Local Union cares. If you’ve lost someone or know someone going through this or even someone who has conquered it, you can make a donation in their name. Here is the link:
