Q: How much does it cost my company to join the union?
A: There is no cost to join the Union for the Employer. You will only have to maintain payroll and benefit bonds for the security of all

Q: If I hire someone and for whatever reason I am un-satisfied, do I have to keep them employed?
A: If in fact you hire someone who for whatever is not a good fit for your shop, you simply send them back to the Union Hall and we will replace them immediately.  We would only ask you what the issues are so we can make sure whatever perceived shortcoming is immediately and effectively addressed for the benefit of the member and future employment.

Q: Will the IBEW try to run my business?
A: Absolutely not, the Local Union will provide manpower and manage benefits.  Your business is your business, and we want nothing more than for you to be completely successful.  Most importantly is that the Union actually will offer help if you need it. Perhaps you are bidding a job in a different State, you need an unusual skill set for an employee, you have business issues needing resolve or any other “out of the normal” situation, we are here to help.  Ultimately the more successful our contractors are, the more successful our team is, and it is really that simple.
