Hate to be picky, but the members of the IUOE are not engineers in the traditional sense. Most of them operate heavy equipment or are mechanics and surveyors...They would not be the top choice to explain pwr generation/transmission or embeddeds. Before anyone flames me, I have quite bit of respect for Cat Operators as my father was employed in that field for 20 yrs. See ya at the meeting,
