The electrical workers of the Municipality of Contramaestre and of all Cuba carry out an arduous work so vital in modernity and so essential in daily life that they deserve just recognition this January 14, when they celebrate their special day.
The date was chosen, once the Cuban Revolution was in power, to pay homage to the guild of this sector, taking as a motive the impulse given by Antonio Guiteras Holmos in 1934 for the intervention to the wrongly named Cuban Electricity Company.
Electrical workers facing difficulties
Contramaestre has 130 workers responsible for bringing electricity to our homes, and they constitute a self-sacrificing workforce that has had to overcome the limitations imposed by the US blockade and the pandemic that is now striking the world.
Luis Angel Milan Reyes, director of the Contramaestre Electrical Base Business Unit, comments on this January 14:
“From January 7 there are activities until January 14, the Day of the Electrical Worker. Everything we do on those days has to do with work itself: provide overtime to solve problems so that the affectations last as little as possible.This year there are no festive activities due to the presence of the Covid-19 in our municipality, however, the outstanding workers will receive their recognition”.

Our thanks to these men and women who light up our days.
