What Does Union Membership Mean for Me?

.
Nearly everyone is a member of something.  It may be a church, a club, a team, or a special interest group. Some belong to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers…as a matter of fact, more than 700,000 men and women across the U.S. and Canada are already members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Your employer may belong to an organization that represents business interests. Maybe you are considering joining a group that will represent yours.

 

The IBEW is an organization created to further the interests of workers in the electrical industry. Its primary goal is to raise the standard of living and improve the working conditions of its members by collectively bargaining with employers for terms and conditions of employment. The IBEW is not “anti-contractor”, but it is “pro-worker”.

 

Some of the potential benefits of becoming a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers are as follows:
.

·         Premium Wages

·         Family Healthcare Coverage

·         Retirement Benefits

·         Improved Working Conditions

     ·         Education and Training Opportunities
