— On the Check

The IBEW sets the standard across the board and our members don’t have the kind of payroll deductions that you’re seeing at non-union employers. For example:

If you are at currently and “making” $40.00 an hour, but are paying your own healthcare and retirement out of pocket - your take home pay is much less..

— Healthcare

All positions come with employer paid health care and most positions include family coverage at no additional cost. Our employers pay for their workers’ medical coverage. Most positions also allow you to build a future coverage bank - this means that their healthcare will be uninterrupted if you can’t work. Workers have used this “bank” to maintain coverage for periods of time when they don’t wish to work, or can’t work due to injury or illness. This has been a great resource for those not wanting or able to work due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

— Retirement

Not only do we value work life- but your post work life as well. You will build no less than two employer paid retirement plans– your local plan and the IBEW International Pension. If you decide to work in another area or work for another IBEW contractor, you will continue to have employer paid contributions into those same plans.

This system allows for our members to have a longstanding and flexible career. A career that provides a living wage and a healthy retirement.

Let us help you plan your career.
