Why You Deserve Better

Founded in 1891 as a part of the AFL, The Union (IBEW) emerged out of simply horrid working conditions for electrical workers.

At the time of their founding, being an electrical worker meant making about $10 a week, low even for the era, and a death/injury rate that was double other industrial jobs.


Thus the IBEW was largely founded to give these workers the working conditions that all Americans today would consider a fundamental human right.
