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.
