PPL is as good as any investor owned. The north west is probably one of the best places live and work. Word has it to stay away from a company called consumers power they are in Philomath Or. Word is they have two brothers from pge(ca.) that think they know everything. Any body thats every worked with refers to tham as a CANCER. Watch your back if your ever around them!!!

The only thing I know is they are a small utility, couple of years ago met a lineman who went to work there, and I remember telling me he only lasted one day.He didn't like the way the lineman work. Not very sure of their safety rules, and overtime was given by seniority, which he was not going to get any for being new, and something about their insurance and benefits, it was not as good as they said it was. Hope this helps out, and see if someone else tells you out more. I think they belong to local 459. Are you going to work for them sir? alcapite.

Catonary, I am a proud IBEW local 125 member. I have also been a JATC instructor. I have found that students graduating from a line school have a higher success rate for completing an apprenticeship program than guys hired right off the street. Right now our numbers are approximately 35% completion rate for guys off the street, 80% for guys who have completed some sort of pre apprenticeship program. Perhaps your experience with the hands you have worked with were not from a reputable school. The students we get are typically graduates of either Avista, Northwest Linemans College or VOLTA. Your statements are also not consistent with the mission of the IBEW as stated by Ed Hill in his most current web cast. The IBEW has rallied behind these schools and has started a few of their own. Currently here in Oregon we have the VOLTA program offered through the NW Line JATC IBEW. Although it is not accredited and not as well structured as some of the other ones offered, they are working in the right direction. I think this is a clear message that the IBEW is also looking at focusing attention to these types of schools. As for students graduating and going to work non-union, Bill Stone, Director of the NW Line JATC has indicated that some of his graduates are working non-union and they are encouraged to do so if they cant secure a union job due to the lack of available jobs. After reading your posts on here it is upsetting that the messages you relay are outdated and not consistent with our mission. Rather than calling them "Rats" why don't you go talk to them and encourage them on joining our proud brotherhood. When you call someone a rat, the last thing they are going to want to do is join us. I also recommend an English class to help you in your writing deficiencies. Imagine the image you are relaying on how well educated an IBEW member is. In my opinion, graduation from HS should be mandatory. Best regards,

Not necessary. Who needs to walk around with big heels that will kill your feet? Bucket or f--- it. At the very least you can get the three parts of a ladder to 99% of rear lot work. Don't be a hero for these jerk offs you work for. If absolutely necessary to climb, guess what, gaffs will even go around 1/2 inch heels. Lineboots are totally unnecessary.

Line Schools "Nothing in return"???
September 17, 2006 05:56:04 AM
Posted by: MM
'Nothing in return'! That's Interesting! You seem to have first hand knowledge of line schools so I would like to know if you can share your experiences with us? Did you attend one? Are you speaking from experience? I too have experience with line schools! I went to one and then went to the Cal-Nev Line JATC for my apprenticeship. In fact they even came to my school and did recruiting, then they talked about how students who attend line schools have a MUCH better rate of getting through their apprenticeship program than those who don't. I think the numbers were something like 65% (JATC book 1-1-1 figures) will complete if they were hired off the street but 95% will complete if they went through a line school. I can tell you that going to the 'line school' has greatly excelled my career. It helped prepare me for my apprenticeship program and more. I think the JATC was good but the training I received to help prepare me for the trade through a line school was second to none. Although the AJATC boasts gaining college credits, I have yet to get them or find anyone who knows how to obtain them. I think we call that a shady area! I contacted my coordinator and business rep but they too were unaware of how to get them or which colleges honored them. I did however receive college credits through the school I went through in the form of CEU's. Don't get me wrong, I love my union and appreciate the training they provided me. But I might not have received that training if it weren't for going through the line school. I went to my local and got in contact with one of the coordinators prior to going to the school. I was treated like crap! Like I was inconveniencing them! Just a number! I eventually took the test and passed and nothing happened. I followed up on it left and right but never heard anything. Finally I just decided to go somewhere where people cared about seeing me succeed. Thus came the 'line school'! It's worked great for me! Oh, by the way! Your comment 'Go ahead and pay good money to those line colleges and then get nothing in return'. I would assume you meant all line schools right? Like the AJATC's pre-apprentice line school called VOLTA out of local 125 NW line JATC. Atleast I had a job when I got out of mine, unlike VOLTA's.

I am a 1st Class (Journeyman) Lineman for Progress Energy Carolinas. We are a non-union workforce, but there is alot of talk about going union lately. It's not that things are that bad here, it's the little changes that keep rolling down hill that are really frustrating us. Slowly decreasing health bennifits, overtime cuts, double time cuts, and an increasing number of supervisors and less senior lineman incharge of the jobs. This is not that same place I started at 8-9 years ago. We are having a meeting next week with the IBEW and I have looked over their website as well as postings at We are definately ready for a change, I am not sure if Union is the answer.

I know that it is a lot different than Lineman work but I have the concepts down. I can obtain my CDL in AZ quickly as well. I have found a Lineman program at GCC but would like to start getting my feet wet as well. Please send my your information to

As you know I think Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeldt should be held on war crimes and put before a firing squad. BUT I HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED THE GRUNTS. I MEAN GRUNTS, NOT THE A$ RUNNING THIS UNBELIEVABLE CLUSTERFUCK. SO AGAIN I ASK YOU TO PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART IS AND DONATE TO THE TO THE "AMERICAN LEGION LEGACY SCHOLARSHIP FUND" AT THE WEB SITE BELOW. AND IF YOU GOT TIME MAKE OR MEET THE American Legacy Run Riding For America's Future Indianapolis To Salt Lake City - 1,900 Miles Over Five Days [quote name='Wood Pecker' post='81741' date='Jul 26 2006, 10:48 PM'] Hey Steve, About how many people ride this run? WP [/quote] I don't know how many. This is the first time in 5 years my surgerys have been healed enough to make a 400 mile plus day. I do know the American Legion Riders and the Kansas Patriot Riders are some hard core serious riders. The Kansas Patriot Riders supply a buffer zone on all military funerals, that might have those religious protester show up that think fag's and gays cause American Troop deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sorry to say that group is based in Topeka Kansas. This Legacy Run provides scholarship funds to attend college to any dependent children of any Military member dying in the line of duty after 9/11. If any of you care to donate $10.00s tax deductible go to the web-site listed below. DO NOT donate in my name. I do not want the credit, but you can donate in the name of American Legion Post # 20 Coffeyville KS You better believe I am going. Leaving here for Indianapolis IN about 14th Aug. and make the whole run then take it easy back from Salt Lake City UT. This may please some at another site, due to the fact 4,000 miles just might kill me. --------------------

Will someone give me some company names (contractors) in Hawaii that does line work. Furthermore, if you or someone else please give me some companies that you feel would be worth trying to get on with. When you obtain Journeyman status, can you pretty much get on anywhere with anybody.

Climbers, I prefer twisted shank,straight are to hard to learn but it is mainly your preferance. the main thing is to practice. Climbing is the easy part. Knowing what to do when you get there, now there is the challenge!!! GOOD LUCK
