      The IBEW System Council T-6 worked through the weekend to negotiate bonuses for those members that are not able to work from home. The minimum payout will be $300 per week. This is a bonus so it will not be included in any overtime calculations. If you have any questions please call the Union office at 508-947-2131. As of now bonuses will be paid through the month of April with the possibility of extension if circumstances warrant. Please continue to work safely in the face of this public health emergency.

      Rest In Peace Joe Ciampi 

      FRAMINGHAM – Our hearts are broken to share that on March 27, 2020, Joseph Paul Ciampi of Milford, passed away from natural causes.

      Joe was born in 1980 and grew up in Framingham.  He graduated from Framingham High School in 1998.

      Shortly after, Joe started a career at Verizon as a technician where he worked throughout his life.

      Joe had a vast knowledge of everything; everyone wanted to be his partner on game night.  He enjoyed electronics, music, anime, gaming and time with many close friends. He was also the very proud father of three fur-babies, his cats Andora, Midna, and Legato.

      Although Joe was big in stature, he had a gentle presence. He has been described as “the world’s kindest person”.  He would help anyone that needed it. Joe had a strong connection with his family. He would have regular weekly lunches with his dad and frequent phone calls with his mom.

      Joe leaves behind his parents, Paul and Patricia (McCarthy) Ciampi of Framingham, his sisters, Denise Braddock of Lancaster, Patty Ciampi and Vanessa Filonow of Oxford and Jamie Ciampi of Ashland and a brother, David of Framingham.  Joe also leaves his much adored niece and nephew, Gina and Derek “DJ” Braddock, who is often told he is “just like Uncle Joe”.

      Joe was an amazing person who was loved by many. He was a happy, easy going guy who left us much too soon.

      In light of the current COVID situation, there will be a private funeral.

      The family will hold a Celebration of Life at a later date.

      In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Joe’s name to a local cat shelter and in the spirit of Joe, remember to reach out to friends and family often…and be kind.

      Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care of Norton Funeral Home, 53 Beech St. Framingham.

      Kerry D. Mason, 62, of North Dighton, passed away on Thursday, March 5, 2020, at his home. 

      Kerry was born in Taunton, the son of the late Charles and Marilyn (White) Mason. Mr. Mason was always ready with a listening ear for everyone, and had the best sense of humor. He always had a joke ready for any situation. He was an avid hunter, and enjoyed cooking. 

      Kerry cherished the time he spent with his family; especially his children and grandchild. He could be found making up imaginary animals with his grandson Evan; and earned the nickname Grandpa Frankentstein, “Grandpa Frank” for short. He enjoyed spending time at the bird sanctuary in Taunton, attending concerts at the Narrows Center in Fall River, and camping and hiking Mount Katahdin in Maine. 

      He is survived by his daughter; Katelyn Mason and her fiancé Brandon Mackenzie of Attleboro, his son; Brandon F. Mason and his wife Kerrie of Fall River; his grandson Evan, his sister; Deborah Fournier of Attleboro, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Keith Mason and sister Barbara Reed.
