BENEFITS OF FORMING A UNION

 

One of the most progressive unions in existence, the IBEW represents some 750,000 members in the United States and Canada.

Most of us have very limited bargaining power as one person, but as a group, we are strong. With a good negotiated contract, we have legal protections we would not have otherwise.

An IBEW Union Contract ...

sets the wages that will be paid for each job

lists the paid holidays

outlines terms for vacations

guarantees benefits such as insurance and pensions

provides job security and a system of seniority by prohibiting management from firing you without good reason and ensuring that they respect your length of service if there are layoffs

protects you from unfair treatment by giving you representation on the job and the right to file grievances if you are treated unfairly

provides for such things as sick leave, jury duty, funeral leave, military service

sets hours of work, overtime

outlines safety regulations

sets conditions of employment
