Join the IBEW Today!
Successful people always recognize and explore their options.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is comprised of proud union members with a wide diversity of skills and jobs. One of the most progressive unions in existence, the IBEW represents some 750,000 members in the United States and Canada.
The main reason to form or belong to a union?
Under the employment at will doctrine, the cornerstone of American employment law, in general terms, unless we belong to a protected group, our employer has the right to discipline or terminate us, with impunity, for any reason — even a bad one — or for no reason at all. That’s why it is sometimes called the fire at will doctrine.
With a collective bargaining agreement, we have rights. Management must have “just cause” for any disciplinary action taken against a union employee. “Just cause” is spelled out in our union contract so that we know exactly what is expected of us.
