At their core, a union is a democratic group of individuals who collectively negotiate for the best offer they can. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers does just that on behalf of its members and helps its signatory contractors gain the best possible competitive advantage in the ever-changing construction market. Every three years, we negotiate a new three-year contact together. The current rates are as follows: 1. Before the expiry of the existing main agreement, the IBEW CCO sends a letter to members requesting additional assistance to extend the non-work stoppage negotiation procedure. Canadian workers, unions and employers recognize and support freedom of association and free collective bargaining. 2. With the mandate of the members to renew this procedure and in agreement with the contractors, both parties negotiate without the threat of strike and/or lockout. The IBEW has been there for Canadians since 1899. And we always will be, now and for the next 115 years. These are not power lines that stop the lights. It is not cables that make communication flow. They`re human beings.
Assiduous people. Our sisters and brothers across Canada. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (I.B.E.W) received its Charter in 1927. At that time, a group of workers decided that it was time to organize their business to obtain fairer wages and benefits so that they could take care of themselves and their families. Since then, the local IBEW has grown from 586 to about 1500 members, with a contractor base of about 170 contractors, I.B.E.W. We welcome new members who are participating in this growth by joining our organizational efforts. We will spend much of our adult lives working, and beyond our health and family, our work should probably be the most important concern we have. We are entitled to a certain degree of job satisfaction in our career and decent working conditions.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has been a proud member of the Canadian labour movement for more than 100 years.
We have built our union on our obligation to organize and represent workers; our adherence and longevity are proof of this commitment. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is an organization that consists of nearly a million men and women, just like you – who work in any type of job. Your needs and objectives are the same as yours; however, they have a personal strength and human dignity that arises from belonging to a world-renowned labour organization that helps its members lead a better, freer and broader life. Right now, we have the manpower that our contractors need, once we have welcomed new members, without finding new contractors, we would not be able to guarantee them a job.
