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.

Club Membership Update

On a sad note, tragedy has hit our organization; first in the form the tragic workplace death of one of our members, and second the occurrence of several natural disasters that decimated several Latin American countries (and or city’s).

First, we ask that everyone keep the family of JOSEPH PACHECO in their thoughts and prayers. Last week, in an unfortunate sequence of events, Brother Pacheco passed away while at work. Our deepest condolences go to Brother Pacheco’s family, especially his 2 children. Below is Funeral and Wake information:

Second, several natural disasters have crippled the islands of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic/ Haiti), Cuba, Puerto Rico and mainland Mexico. While there is much coordination to be made in the form of relief, we are asking all members to donate any non-perishable goods for families in need. Our organization has a long history of supporting our fellow Latin American countries, and we are asking everyone to step up and help them in their time of need. Please bring non-perishable goods to this Thursday’s SIES meeting.
