About Us


The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers represents electrical workers in every phase of the electrical industry. We are united to elevate the moral, intellectual, and social conditions of our families, our communities, and ourselves.

The IBEW dedicates itself to the well-being of electrical workers and their families and the achievement of continued progress on their behalf. Locally we are a brotherhood of more than 500 men and women from the Mobile and surrounding area –a talented group of inside electricians, maintenance electricians, residential electricians, and voice-data-video technicians. We pride ourselves on being the finest craftspeople in the world.

Since 1891, the goals of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers have been:

  • 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.
  • 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.

The demand for skilled electrical workers is high. If you are an electrician or contractor or just interested in learning a trade, unite with us for a brighter and safer future!

A Diverse Organization, United as One!
