The Federal Government is committing trillions of dollars to revitalize our infrastructure, energy grid, and manufacturing sector. This substantial investment translates to the creation of over 100,000 new energy jobs specifically tailored for members of our union, the IBEW. To ensure that these opportunities seamlessly transform into IBEW jobs, every IBEW Business Manager should prioritize the following five actions:

  1. Call back the non-union contractors within 5 days. 
  2. Pay attention to your prevailing wage. 
  3. Bring a project labor agreement to the developer. 
  4. Expand your training program.
  5. Punish the cheaters. 

The future and prosperity of our union hinge on your actions! In the latest President’s Message, International President Cooper is divulging the essential tools for success in today’s landscape—make sure to tune in.
