  • What is a Union
    International Brotherhood of Electrical  -  Local 340

     

    What is a Union?

    Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment. Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work  Every one who works  has the right to just and favorable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.  Everyone has the right to work and to join trade unions.

    A union is an organization of workers joined together for a common purpose, for mutual aid and protection, to engage in concerted activity and collective bargaining, to elevate their conditions of life and labor.  It is an organization by which ordinary people come together to accomplish extraordinary things. 


    Why We Join Unions

    By joining together, we have more of a say in our working lives. With a union we can negotiate with our employers for better wages and benefits, fair treatment, safe working conditions and a harassment-free workplace.

    These goals can be achieved because of the strength which comes from our unity- a very old and widely used concept.

    The Nations of the world join the United Nations, employers join the Chamber of Commerce and doctors join the American Medical Association.

    All such groups recognize the power that comes from joining together to work toward common goals.

    Working people recognizing that there is  strength in numbers. We  join unions to further our common goals.

    Through unions we achieve a strong voice, one that cannot be easily dismissed by management. 


    The IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) is Your Union

    The IBEW is an organization that relies on members' support and involvement for strength.  The more active the members are, the stronger the union is.  It is a union with a clear record of dedication to the principals of fairness and dignity at the workplace.  It is the largest, strongest and oldest union devoted to electrical workers.

    IBEW local unions are spread over the United States, Canada, and the Canal Zone.  IBEW International Officers are nominated and elected by duly elected delegates at the International Convention.

    Eleven International Vice Presidents, assisted by International Representatives, and under the supervision of the International President, assist the local unions in their respected districts with Organizing, Training, Collective bargaining, and Contract administration.  


    Local 340 IBEW, Sacramento, is Your Local Union

    You and your co-workers have the right to elect the officers of Local 340, attend union meetings where the members set policy for their officers to carry out and vote on contracts that your representatives negotiate.  Local 340 has the main responsibility of enforcing your rights under the union contract. 


    Your Union Contract

    IBEW members working for signatory employers are covered by a union contract.  Contracts cover such rights and benefits as:

    Wages:  Fair rates of pay for each job, etc.

    Working Conditions:  Job security, safety and health, personal rights, and fair treatment.

    Hours:  Rest periods, holidays, vacation, overtime pay, etc.

    Benefits:  Hospitalization, pensions, etc.

    Grievance Procedures: A procedure for resolving a dispute with your employer.

    Your contract is negotiated with management by your co-workers and IBEW leaders.  Every member has the right to make suggestions about what should be in the contract and to vote on the final agreement.  To win a good contract, members have to show management that they are united in support of their negotiating team.

    The working conditions and benefits in the contract are guaranteed.   During the term of the contract, management cannot legally change it without negotiating with the union. 


    NECA and the IBEW Working Together

    NECA (The National Electrical Contractors Association) and the IBEW are partners in this industry.  Management (NECA), and Labor (IBEW) have a relationship in which we both respect and recognize our individual needs.  We work together as industry partners.

    Our vision in partnering, is establishing the electrical standard, committed to customer satisfaction, honesty, quality, public safety and continually seeking and pursuing opportunities to build better communities.

    Our mission is to exceed our customers expectations by providing a quality electrical installation on time and within budget--utilizing the best qualified workforce trained to national standards by NECA and the IBEW Working Together.
