By securing collective bargaining agreements nationwide for our members, we help ensure good wages, benefits, and working conditions. But even more importantly, we ensure our members dignity and respect on the job, an element that is missing in so many non-union workplaces.
Today’s job market is changing. Transportation trends, shipping trends and technology are reshaping the industry at a rapid pace. The IBEW’s goal is to support workers during these uncertain times and ensure that our members have a say in decisions that affect them and remain on the cutting edge of these changes.
Our Railroad Department, with its qualified staff with expertise in the rail industry, works full-time to assist local unions with contract negotiations, grievance and arbitration proceedings, and many other areas affecting the everyday work lives of our members. The IBEW has negotiated the best possible wages, working conditions, and benefits for our members—and we will never stop fighting for the top agreements in the industry.
