IBEW Local Union 952 was founded in 1937, and is the voice of the Electrical Construction Industry in Ventura County. We are a movement for social justice, safe jobsites, training, green jobs and opportunity for all based in Ventura, California. IBEW 952 represents Electricians, Electrical Apprentices, Communications and Systems Installers, Transportation Systems Journeyman, Construction Wireman and Construction Electricians. Our members are involved in every aspect of our community. We work with business, labor, community, politicians, environmental organizations, and anyone else who is working toward making Ventura County a better place.
These are the following principles for which the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was founded:
The IBEW was founded in 1891 by a group of electricians who wanted a safer workplace, fair wages, respect for the service they rendered their communities through their labors. In 1891 there were no training programs, no safety regulations, no medical plans, no pension or retirement plans, and nearly half of all electricians were being killed on the job. Because the IBEW nourished the needs of these workers, it has grown from a handful of pioneers to the largest electrical union in the world. However, the IBEW is not about a growing business or organization, it’s a fraternity. The IBEW is made up of working men and women, in the electrical industry, committed to bettering themselves and the industry. Neither the IBEW nor the electrical industry is made better unless all who labor in the industry are secure in their employment, receive a fair wage, have training programs, pension plans, dental and medical plans for themselves and their families. For over a hundred years the IBEW has been about offering all these things to electricians. All electrical workers deserve the IBEW’s standard of living, the highest in the industry.
