SHARE YOUR STORY SINCE BECOMING AN IBEW MEMBER
We are looking for members who would like to share a few words about their experience and career change since becoming a member of Local 112. Many times those working in the non-union sector of the electrical industry are hesitant to join because they have heard so many negative things about being a union electrician, mainly from their non-union employer. If you have worked non-union in the past and are now a union, IBEW member, we would like to hear from you about the changes you have experienced in your life since being a union member…….. changes on the job and the changes to your family with a wage and benefit package that allows you to feel confident you are doing the best in supporting and taking care of them. Call Joe Legard at the hall for more info. 509-735-0512.
