President’s Award 2022

Published On: 22, September 2023

Members of IBEW 2228,


I am pleased to announce the 2022 winner of our President’s award, Leo Reitze.

Leo has a reputation as an individual who will sacrifice his own time to help a colleague or fellow member. I can agree, having dealt with Leo several times, that this reputation is well deserved.

Leo ensured that the Edmonton unit remained active by moving into the position of Unit Chair when the position was vacated. As Chair of these meetings, he does an exemplary job of facilitating the meetings to allow all members to share information and voice opinions or concerns. Leo is an excellent listener who does not speak out of turn and always responds in a way that reassures members that they have been heard.

Our local is fortunate to have Leo as a unit Officer, our membership is fortunate to count Leo among our ranks and many of us are also fortunate to work alongside such a truly decent colleague.

Thank you Leo,

In Solidarity,

Jeff Wendt

President, IBEW Local 2228
