HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS
The strength of the IBEW is in an informed, active and diverse membership. Greater opportunities now exist to organize and represent women and people of color. The CCE addresses ways to encourage greater sensitivity, awareness, participation and leadership development for all members. Training workshops for union leaders and members are available on issues affecting the changing workplace and our local unions.
IBEW- The RIGHT Choice!
The IBEW is an organization with over 650,000 members trained in various phases of electrical construction and technologies via our self-funded, nationally certified classroom, and on the job training programs. Collectively, the IBEW provides 350,000 qualified, world-class craftsman and women for over 14,000 electrical contractors across the United States and Canada.
Our Business Development team focuses on building and maintaining direct relationships with customers, owners, general contractors, and project managers, by bringing value to their projects through pre-project assistance, competitive bidding, and superior job site performance showcased by the IBEW Code of Excellence.
Community engagement is the cornerstone of improving the IBEW's standing in our neighborhoods, opening new networking and business opportunities and increasing our memberships' sense of pride, fulfillment and solidarity in the union. It is cultivated by developing partnerships and coalitions that help mobilize resources and influence systems, change relationships among partners, and serve as catalysts for changing policies, programs, and practices. It is also accomplished through the process by which organizations and individuals build ongoing, permanent relationships for the purpose of applying a collective vision for the benefit of a community.
