Proud to be Union

What Union members stand for and fight to maintain is what makes our country great.

Why Politics Matter
If you've ever wondered why political involvement is so important for union families and all working families you need to watch this video.

Welcome to our website

Our cause is the cause of   human justice,   human rights,   human security

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) was formed in 1891 by a small group of electricians who wanted a safer workplace, fair wages and, in general, respect for the service they provided their communities through their labor. In 1891 there were no training programs, safety-regulations, medical plans, pension or retirement plans, and nearly half of all electricians were being killed on the job. Because the IBEW nourished the needs of these workers, it has grown from a handful of pioneers to the largest electrical union in the world. However, the IBEW is not about a growing business or organization, it's a fraternity. The IBEW is made up of working men and women, in the electrical industry, committed to bettering themselves and the industry. Neither the IBEW nor the electrical industry is made better, unless all who labor in the industry are secure in their employment, receive a fair wage, have training programs, pension plans, dental and medical plans for themselves and their families.

As union members we bargain collectively with our employers over wages, benefits and rights. We have the best chance of receiving better wages, benefits and fair treatment in the workplace by bargaining collectively as a union. Most of us have very limited bargaining power as one person, but as a group, we are strong. And, with a good negotiated contract, we have legal protections we would not otherwise have.

For over one-hundred years, IBEW Local #73 has promoted a higher standard of living for thousands of members and their families in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho in various industries and fields such as: Television Broadcasting, Electrical Maintenance, Sound and Communication (Voice Data Video)Technicians, Manufacturing, Residential Electricians, and Commercial/Industrial Electricians.

Our members and their families enjoy benefits such as;

  • Top wages that set area standards.
  • Family medical/dental/and vision.
  • Three separate retirement plans, with several investment options and online tracking.
  • The ability to work for 100% of the employers in your area.
  • Free continuing education classes for members.

All electrical workers deserve the IBEW's standard of living, the highest in the industry!

Through membership that standard of living becomes a reality.

Right to Work......."for-less" is a Race to the Bottom!!!
Idaho Labor Leader calls for Quality Jobs for Idaho

We need to focus Idaho on becoming a living wage economy. If not, we will all continue to be held back by an economy in which large numbers of Idahoans have no buying power and earn poverty wages such that they become dependent on taxpayer funded services.

Young Workers Strengthening the Labor Movement
