Dedicated to the cause of a higher standard of living for all working men and women, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union No. 8 represents 1930 men and women who perform electrical construction in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. We primarily represent electricians in commercial, industrial and residential construction markets, but our ranks are growing with teledata communication workers. We also have among our members a number of maintenance electricians.
We are proud of the fact that we are well known in the community as a highly skilled workforce. Our progressive, cutting edge training program is nationally recognized in the training arena, and is a model to others. In addition, we are pleased to have pledged our full support to the Building Trades Academy thus affording our youth of today an opportunity to explore the available occupational options within the Building Trades Industry.
Along with our training and educational programs within our local union, we have also received recognition for our Labor-Management cooperation efforts and our support of many community programs.
