Local 1-2 safety icon Billy Bleichner is retiring on October 1 with almost 50 years of service. He was a full-time Senior Safety Inspector taking care of Con Ed’s electrical division in the Bronx and Westchester, New York. He is pictured here with Jim Slevin, who was president of the local at that time.
“There’s been no one better to teach me the physical parts of the job as well as safety and procedures,” says Local 1-2 Shop Steward Scott Adrian. “Billy is second to none, and will be a missed asset to the company and the union.”
