Capital Corner

IBEW Local 159 is actively engaged in the political scene within our jurisdiction, as well as statewide. Locally, we make our voice heard at public meetings for projects like Judge Doyle Square in downtown Madison, and the Enbridge Pipeline pump station in Waterloo. We also weigh in on policies and issues of statewide significance, such as electrical licensing and Right To Work legislation.

We advocate for labor-friendly measures whenever possible. Using tools like Community Workforce Agreements and Project Labor Agreements helps boost the number of local residents hired for jobs in their own communities. The workers’ earnings are in turn spent locally, and benefit the community.
