Why join the IBEW?

You have the right to a decent wage and working conditions, the IBEW is here to protect your rights. With the IBEW you have access to training, apprenticeships, pension, and benefit plans, which protect your future. The only rights non-union workers have are statutory rights such as minimum wage and overtime.

The IBEW has the resources, staff, and training to help you with workplace safety issues, unfair discipline, harassment or discrimination, and other areas of labour relations.  We’re eager to stand beside you to fight for what’s fair. 

Employees at any workplace have a legal right to decide if they want to have a union represent them. Joining a union is a choice only you and your co-workers can make.
