The Santiago Iglesias Educational Society is an Affiliated Club of Local Union #3, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Our goals are to develop an interest in Latinos living in New York, to further an understanding among each member and to aid them in their social, economic and educational development, to join together with other organizations having similar purposes and interests, and to urge the participation of Latinos in their political and social affairs by urging all to exercise the privileges of the right to register and the right to vote, to provide services for information and education regarding our community and to promote education; to protect those members from industrial and economic discrimination and to assist in the social betterment of our community.

Meeting Information

November 28, 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters


This month’s meeting will be held on Thursday, November 30, 2017, in the Balcony Lounge of the Joint Industry Board. The meeting begins at 5:00 p.m. Food and beverages will be served. Business Representative Benjamin Arana will report on what is happening in our industry. President Gil Medina will give his monthly report.

On behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors of the S.I.E.S, we would like to thank everyone who attended both the 33rd Community Turkey Giveaway and the Joan of Arc Food and Clothing Drive. The Club collaborated with both Real Estate Businessman and Community Activist Joel Fishman and the ArchCare at Home Organization; which allowed for the distribution of over 2,000 turkeys in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx (one of the poorest Congressional District in the Country). And the Joan of Arc Food and Clothing Drive on Thanksgiving Day; these two events impacted the lives of many and highlighted our longstanding commitment to communities across NYC.

Up Coming Event:

  • On December 17th, the 419 Spartan Club will be delivering all donated toys to St. Mary’s Hospital. We ask all SIES members to bring a toy to this months meeting. For those who do not know, St. Mary’s Hospital is a Hospital for children with special needs and we proudly support any organization seeking to help a Hospital that has touched the lives of countless New Yorkers.
  • This Meeting is our YEARLY holiday COQUITO MEETING and we will be serving cake and coffee after the meeting

Lastly, would like to thank everyone for all his or her support and look forward to celebrating the organizations 60th anniversary in 2018. As everyone can imagine, sixty years is a very long time and in that time the Santiago Iglesias Educational Society has maintained its four core principles of Education, Housing, Jobs, and Justice as focal points for its success. These core principles have allowed the organization to grow; making it the Oldest Existing Latino-based Labor Organization in NYC. We ask that you continue to support our organization.


Thank you for your support.

Gil Medina
