I.B. Abel Inc. has been providing electrical contracting services to York County Pennsylvania and surrounding area since 1913. They are now the oldest electrical contractor in Central Pennsylvania and also one of the largest. The company has humble beginnings from when it was founded by Israel Borger Abel and his son Norm Abel in 1913 as an appliance business. Israel and Norm also got involved in electrical contracting due to the severe need for safe wiring in people’s houses to support appliance installs. The company soon turned most of its attention to electrical contracting by 1923 and became a union electrical contractor. The company has survived trough the great depression, the deaths of the founders, and being sold. As I.B. Abel continues on into the 21st century we can only be excited at what the next 100 years can bring. Congratulations I.B. Abel. Inc. on your 100th year in business!

After a difficult week of budget negotiations and votes in both chambers of the general assembly, the gavel came down last night, and the State House recessed for the summer, without floor votes attacking workers through privatization, pension reform, or paycheck protection.
“Our slogan has always been, ‘your fight is our fight,’ and the solidarity demonstrated by the labor movement over this legislative session has embodied that mantra,” said Pennsylvania AFL-CIO President Rick Bloomingdale.
In spite of late efforts to revive “Paycheck Protection” and liquor privatization, and Corbett’s demand for action on so-called “Pension Reform,” the labor movement remained unified and steadfast, bolstered by the activism of our membership.
“The fact that we have endured nearly four years of failed leadership from Tom Corbett without suffering the consequences of the worst legislative attacks that this administration brought upon us, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our 800,000 rank and file members across the Commonwealth,” said Pennsylvania AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Frank Snyder.
In the past month alone, you have made tens of thousands of phone calls, send thousands of letters, and flooded legislators’ Capitol and District offices with e-mails and faxes. Your messages and in-office visits made the difference.
It’s important to remember that even though the legislature is out on recess at the moment, that they will come back, and that these fights are not over yet. With that in mind, we hope that all of you will consider the difficult legislative session we have faced, and the effort that it took on all of our parts to avert disaster. Consider what the next legislature might look like if we put that same effort into the next four months leading up to election day!
