who we are
IBEW Local 64 services our contractors with a highly skilled electrical workforce of inside wiremen – while also providing our members with all the benefits of belonging to the world’s most progressive trade union, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is the most established and extensive electrical union in the world, existing as long as the commercial use of electricity. IBEW has been working hard to protect its members since the first convention held in St. Louis on November 2, 1891.
IBEW Local 64 was chartered over 100 years ago on October 24th, 1902. Since that time, we have worked hard to improve the labor conditions and standard of living of our members and the communities we work in through representation, training and quality craftsmanship.
The Objectives of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers:
- 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.
- To promote reasonable methods of work.
- To cultivate feelings of friendship among those of our industry.
- To settle all disputes between employers and employees by arbitration (if possible).
- To assist each other in sickness or distress.
- To secure employment.
- To reduce the hours of daily labor.
- To secure adequate pay for our work.
- To seek a higher and higher standard of living.
- To seek security for the individual.
- And, by legal and proper means, to elevate the moral, intellectual, and social conditions of our members, their families, and dependents, in the interest of a higher standard of citizenship.
