The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) was founded on November 28, 1891 by a group of ten delegates representing 286 members employed in the electrical industry. While the size and scope of the contracts have changed, the vision still remains:
To promote reasonable methods of work,
To cultivate feelings of friendship among those of our industry,
To assist each other in sickness or distress,
To secure employment,
To secure adequate pay for our work,
To seek security for the individual,
And, by legal and proper means, elevate the moral, intellectual, and social conditions of our members, their families and dependents, in the interest of a higher standard of citizenship.
