    • SENATE BILLS THAT WILL HURT OUR ELECTRICAL INDUSTRY

      1-800-562-6000

      Call today - the deadline is March 10th

      Currently in Washington State, there are four bad electrical bills surviving. These bills are bad for our industry and we need all IBEW members to call the WA State Legislative Hotline and oppose these bills.

      OPPOSE SB5845 - deregulates the electrical industry by letting heating, ventilation and air-conditioning techs do work that is currently ONLY done by licensed electricians and plumbers.

      OPPOSE SB5846 - would a allow a company with  no electrical license to send a worker with no electrical license or experience to do  line voltage electrical work.  The bill's primary focus targets electrical appliance installation but it is no limited to that scope of work.

      OPPOSE SB5581 & SB5282 - these bills deregulate the electrical industry by allowing security alarm installation that is currently performed by licensed low voltage techs to be done by anyone. Security systems protect people  and should be done by the highest qualified people. SB5181 effects commercial and SB5282 is for residential security systems.  

      PREVAILING WAGE

      STUDY PERFECTLY ILLUSTRATES WHY ARGUMENTS AGAINST PREVAILING WAGE ARE ILLOGICAL AND ABSURB

      Read this interesting article by Robbie Hunter, President of the California State Building & Construction Trades Council on whether construction workers deserve to be paid prevailing wage on public projects.  There is an active crusade by Republicans in this country to slash wages on publicly funded projects , and if we don't elect people who will fight for the working class people in this country, we will be the losers !  Think about it !

      READ THE FULL ARTICLE

      KEEP UPDATED ON THE LATEST NEWS THAT AFFECTS ORGANIZED LABOR

      The Washington State Labor Council has an online newspaper that is very informative and full of information that affects the working class people of our state and nation.  

      GET THE LATEST INFORMATION THAT AFFECTS YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FUTURE !

      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.
