Joining IBEW 223 : Affiliated Electricians of Southeastern Massachusetts
Quoted from the IBEW Constitution, this is the first objective of the IBEW:
To organize all workers in the entire electrical industry in the United States and Canada, including all those in public utilities and electrical manufacturing, into local unions.

First: you must decide why you would like to affiliate with the IBEW :
1) Do my co-workers and I want more money or better benefits ?
2) Do my co-workers and I want better work rules or safer conditions ?
3) Do my co-workers and I want to be treated fairly and with greater dignity ?
Second: You must talk with your co-workers.
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) provides legal protection for workers who act together to address workplace problems or improve wages, benefits, and conditions of employment in the workplace.
Third: You and your co-workers must contact the IBEW
