The National Joint Apprenticeship Committee (NJATC) has developed uniform standards that are adopted and used nationwide by local programs to select and train thousands of men and women each year. The finest electrical workers in the country receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

It's a model education partnership which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeymen in the country. The majority of the $100 million annually spent is privately funded.

The Ithaca JATC provides apprentices with tuition free classroom training and training assignments and paid on the job training, earning while they learn.

Our apprenticeship programs are highly specialized, and features an "earn-as-you-learn" approach. Apprentice classes are conducted at night so that they may work in the field during the day. In both classroom and on-the-job situations, the apprentices receive their training from highly qualified professionals. They also earn a good wage and are afforded attractive benefits like health insurance, pensions and 401k plans, college credits and more. Upon graduation, they will be in a class of highly trained professionals in a very rewarding career with a bright future.

Although our Charter is dated March 3, 1922, there was an IBEW Local #409 in Ithaca from May 26, 1903 through 1908, and a Local #486 from 1915 to 1916. Also, we were not the first IBEW Local #241. Four other cities carried the #241 charter before us. Pittsburgh, Pa. was chartered as Local #241 on March 1, 1902. Dayton, Ohio on October 27, 1902. Springfield, Mass on September 8, 1914, and Seattle, Wash. On April 20, 1917.

We have a long and proud heritage. As with most unions, our members and their families have made many sacrifices through the years that continue to benefit all of us today. Fortunately we have experienced an abundance of work and able, dedicated leadership.


Who Is IBEW?

Back to top

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is an organization made up of nearly one million men and women just like you -- engaged in every type of employment. Their needs and goals are the same as yours; however, they have personal strength and human dignity that come from belonging to a world-respected labor organization which helps its members to better their lives.

IBEW members stand united in local unions in all 50 of the Unites States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Republic of Panama, Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Islands. Our members make up the following career fields:

  • Utility systems
  • Communication systems
  • Inside and outside Construction and Maintenance
  • Financial Industries
  • Manufacturing industries
  • Railroad
  • and Government

The growth of our great modern industrial economy is directly related to the growth of electronics and to the use of electrical energy. Thus, IBEW members are an essential part of this progress: "Electricity and the IBEW equals Progress and Prosperity."

The IBEW provides imaginative, responsible leadership and has an outstanding reputation for being a progressive union. It is an important member of the AFL-CIO family of unions. IBEW has constantly and consistently worked through the years to better the wages and working conditions of its members and to create a society in which social justice and human dignity are a reality to all citizens. IBEW protects members by insisting upon realistic safety standards, and opportunities for training and skills improvement which results in increased job security and higher wages. In addition, the IBEW maintains an interest in its members beyond their active working years. It offers special assistance in negotiating local pension plans.

There are many other reasons why the IBEW is one of the AFL-CIO's largest and fastest growing unions. These include an organization and an experienced staff for negotiating the best possible collective bargaining agreements, numerous labor education programs specially suited to members' needs, and the IBEW Founders' Scholarship program for providing qualified members with the opportunity for a college education.

The IBEW is people: young and old, of every race, nationality and creed, bonded together in the common conviction that collective actions succeeds in attaining mutually agreed upon goals - whereas individuals are at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
