    What We Do

    Looking for a skilled career in the electrical industry?

    Or do you want to improve conditions in your current job? Looking for fair pay, decent benefits, an opportunity to grow? On-the-job respect?

    A union of 750,000 members, the IBEW is the largest organization of electrical workers in North America. Our members work in nearly every part of the economy: construction, utilities, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroad and government.

    Formed in 1891, we have earned our reputation as the oldest, largest and most professional electrical union in the world. We are on the job at construction sites, power plants, factories, offices, shipyards, TV studios and rail yards.

    We know that there’s strength in numbers and have a proven path to help get results. By securing good wages, solid benefits and safer job sites, our union helps build a better road to the middle class for all working families.


    Who We Are

    International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers

    The IBEW represents approximately 775,000 active members and retirees who work in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government.  The IBEW has members in both the United States and Canada and stands out among the American unions in the AFL-CIO because it is among the largest and has members in so many skilled occupations.

    As union members, we bargain collectively with our employers over wages, benefits, and rights.

    Most of us have very limited bargaining power as one person, but as a group, we are strong. And, with a good negotiated contract, we have legal protections we would not have otherwise.


    Who We Represent
    Local 1205 represents workers in the electrical industry throughout North Central Florida, West Florida, and South Georgia.
    The objects of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers are: 
    To organize all workers in the entire electrical industry in the United States and Canada, including all those in public utilities and electrical manufacturing, into local unions, reasonable methods of work, To cultivate feelings of friendship among those of our industry,  To settle all disputes between employers and employees by arbitration (if possible),  To assist each other in sickness or distress,  To secure employment,  To reduce the hours of daily labor,  To secure adequate pay for our work,  To seek a higher and higher standard of living,  To seek security for the individual,  And, by legal and proper means to elevate the moral, intellectual and social conditions of our members, their families and dependents, in the interest of a higher standard of citizenship.
    Here is our current working agreement:

    Online Payments for Dues, Sick and Needy Fund, and EDBF

    Members can make dues payments and pay death benefits online.  Anyone already enrolled in the Sick and Needy Fund will have that payment combined with the monthly dues in the payment portion.  For all spouses in EDBF, to log in the card number will be DB then the last four of the social.  Anyone interested in joining EDBF or the Sick and Needy Fund will need to contact the hall for initiation and then will be able to pay future payments online.
