How to Sign the Book During COVID-19

Solidarity Through Safety

Our actions affect our IBEW sisters and brothers at work, and our families at home. If you are looking, free vaccines are available at for ages 5 and older. Boosters are also available for adults. The December IBEW 159 newsletter was emailed and mailed out yesterday, and is archived on this site. It includes Q&A and info links. In the October Electrical Worker our International President urges IBEW members to protect ourselves and one another, and shares IBEW members’ reasons why they got their shot. Stay well, stay safe.

Celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, November 15 – 21


Registered Apprenticeship is more than a job, it is a pathway to a family-sustaining career. Apprentices earn while they learn, with benefits, through on-the-job training and classroom instruction.
Meet some IBEW 159 apprentices

Apprenticeships in the trades last 3-5 years. When an apprentice tops out, they have money in the bank, and money put away toward retirement, instead of debt from student loans. Learn more about the trades at Building Trades Council of SC Wisconsin
