Jim Griffin has been a committed board member of the Community Services Agency for several years. Since coming on the board, Jim (with ball) has ensured that his local, IBEW 1900, has supported Agency fundraisers, made contributions to the Emergency Assistance Fund, and spread the word to members about the Agency and its services. He has paid for a mailing each fall to all of his members encouraging their financial support during the United Way employee giving campaign at the local’s shops, and he has made sure the employers have included CSA in kick-off events with employees. He is currently working with CSA to help pipeline CSA’s Building Futures construction pre-apprenticeship program graduates into good union jobs at PEPCO. Jim and Local 1900 truly live “Labor Cares- Labor Shares.”
