We’re introducing a new segment on Hour Power called Band of Brotherhood. We created this segment because we’re always looking to grow the IBEW and looking to hire returning military veterans.

Growing the IBEW isn’t as simple as grabbing people off the streets and putting them on a job site. Part of the challenge is not just anyone can do our work. However, veterans have been have been great workers and valuable assets to our union.

These vets are in great demand and we have to compete with other crafts just to win them over. Band of Brotherhood will highlight these veterans and show different profiles. We’ll show vets who are happy to talk about their new life in the IBEW.

Nothing sells the IBEW like a vet telling his or her story. The best home for a returning vet is right here, with the IBEW. Our challenge to our fellow brothers and sisters to help get the word out. We’re asking you to share the first episode of the Band of Brotherhood with those you know, and stay tuned for episode two featuring brother John Rusnak from IBEW Local 673​.
