IBEW issues threat to sue…even its own members?

We cannot show you the logo that we’re writing about (you can see it here though).  You see, its union owners are getting hypersensitive about anyone, including the union’s own members, from using its logo.

In a post earlier this month, the IBEW international issued the following warning about unauthorized use of its logo:

But it is in the interest of the membership that the International Office retains sole ownership and usage of the logo to protect members from confusing information and to maintain the integrity of this treasured symbol.

The IBEW retains the prerogative to initiate legal action against anyone using the IBEW logo without permission. 

Even though we think the logo could use a face lift (maybe a picture of a rat and some picketers?), the IBEW’s warning is duly noted…

“I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as ABC, hold up truth to your eyes.” Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776
