Incentive Program

Now is the time to reach out to that former electrician coworker, neighbor, acquaintance or friend and talk to them about why you are a member of the IBEW. Talk about wages, better standards in our contracts, and having 200 contractors to choose from offering those wages and standards. Talk about Full Family Health Care with no premium cost to you, the Flex Plan covering your copays, and a diversified Retirement with $13.56 being invested every hour you work. Talk about Safety and Training and dispel any negative rumors about unions. Talk to them so they can check it out for themselves and find contact information for Organizers. Contact one of the Organizers so we can assist you along the way.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to try and better the lives of others and for helping us raise the standards for all workers in the industry.
