WHO WE ARE
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) represents approximately 750,000 active members and retirees in the United States and Canada who work in a wide variety of fields. The IBEW stands out among the American unions and the AFL-CIO because it is among the largest and has members in so many skilled occupations.
Together with NECA contractors, we set standards for traditional and integrated electrical systems and lead the industry in the practical application of new technologies.
STUFF WE MAKE
The IBEW and NECA Contractors make electrical systems for rural and urban communities, city infrastructure, industrial and commercial properties, from individual homes up to refineries and power distribution centers that support them.
