The IBEW Membership Development Department is committed to improving the lives of North America’s electrical workers and their families. With more than 700,000 members, the IBEW is among the world’s strongest labor organizations, representing workers in a range of skilled occupations in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government. Built on the principles of family, fairness, justice and equality, the IBEW reflects the fact that union members enjoy superior wages and benefits for their abilities. For these reasons, the IBEW Membership Development Department is dedicated to advancing the legacy of our founders; joining North America’s electrical workers in a common organization to make better life for all.
