Why Become a Union Member?

Being an IBEW member provides workers with many advantages

An IBEW electrician has the best career in the construction industry. IBEW electricians can make a good living on 40 hours per week and most don't have to be away from home for weeks at a time. The vast majority of IBEW electricians work close to home and have dinner with their families every evening. And, they get to spend their nights and weekends doing things they enjoy - not working!

These are just some of the many benifits you will receive by being an IBEW member:

  • Better Wages
  • Job Security
  • Strength in Numbers
  • Secured Retirement
  • Excellent Medical

About the retirement and medical, the monies and premiums are payed for by the contractors out of what is refered to as the package part of your overall pay. Think of it as the company paying you a salary plus benefits. You won't see any deductions for these benifits taken out of your check. And the best part is, you will receive these same benefits without having to work for one contractors for your entire career because the package is paid into a central location and follows you!

Electrical work is pretty much the same whether you are union or nonunion. So why work for less money and fewer benefits when you can join the IBEW and have the best pay and benefits available?
