Business Manager/Financial Secretary

Corey Lehman

I was employed by GTE/Verizon/Frontier in April of 1998.  I worked in Dispatch for my first 18 months.  I then went outside as a Customer Zone Technician II (CZT II) until around the end of 2005.  That is when Verizon started installing FIOS and I had the opportunity to become a Fiber Network Field Technician (FNFT). In 2010 I went back to being a Customer Zone Technician II(CZT II) which was changed to a Sales and Service Tech II(SSTII). In 2015 I was reclassified to a Sales and ServiceTech I (SSTI) doing business work.

I joined IBEW Local 723  in 1998 as soon as I could.  I became a steward in 2000 because I wanted to get involved in trying to make a difference in the workplace.  I quickly found how being a good steward is a big responsibility.  I attended IBEW 6th District Arbitration Institute in 2005 at the University of Illinois, Advanced Arbitration and Brief Writing at the University of Wisconsin in 2006, and was able to attend Labor Management seminars at IUPUI.  I havbe also been part of the bargaining committee for all the current Frontier contracts since 2006.

I decided to throw my hat into the political ring in 2005 and make a run for Local 723 Vice-President.  I was very pleased with the outcome.  I served two terms as Vice-President and in 2011 I ran for President and again served our membership for two terms. I am honored to now be the Business Manager of our fine IBEW Local 723, and look forward to serving the membership to the best of my ability.

Both my parents are retired union employees from General Electric, so I grew up in a pro-union environment.  Job security, healthcare and seniority are not just words to me.  I heard them daily growing up.  They mean something to me and I will do my best to preserve them for our members.

I have 3 wonderful children, Colin , Alyssa  and Aaron . Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf and working around our home.

I have also attended classes with Indiana University dealing with FMLA, labor History, and worker rights. I was appointed as the local’s registrar in 2014 where I remained very active in state and national labor legislation. From 2009 – 2017 I served as chief steward in the city of Ft. Wayne working at Frontier Communications as a Sales and Service Tech II -copper (SSTII –copper). In 2016 I was appointed as a delegate to the SCT-4 for Frontier employees. In late 2017 I was asked to work full time for the local as a Business Representative and gladly accepted.  I am proud to serve all of my brothers and sisters at IBEW Local 723, and look forward to representing our local for years to come. 

I live with my wife Kelly and my son Nicholas. When not working I enjoy fishing, camping, and spending time with my family and friends.
