About Us

We are your freinds and neighbors

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) represents a diverse community of approximately 750,000 active members and retirees across the United States and Canada. Our union encompasses a wide range of professions, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads, and government sectors.

As proud union members, we recognize the power of collective bargaining. By joining together, we have the ability to negotiate as a unified force for better wages, benefits, and overall rights in the workplace. Our collective strength gives us a distinct advantage in advocating for fair treatment and improved conditions.

Through the process of collective bargaining, we can secure favorable contracts that provide legal protections and safeguards which individual employees may not have access to. It is the unity and solidarity within our ranks that amplifies our voices and helps us achieve positive changes in our working environments.

Together, we stand strong as a united workforce, advocating for the rights and well-being of all our members across various skilled occupations.
