A Big Thank You To Our Membership For Your Contract Suggestions

Contract negotiations are in progress and we want to thank all of our members who gave us their input in regard to the new contract. We can summarize the collective concerns of our members from those suggestions down to two very important points: 1) Help us to get more competitive 2) work toward preserving our pensions and health plans.

IBEW Local 363 members can rest assured that the goal of the bargaining committee during these negotiations is the exact same goal as theirs. We will be discussing the local electrical market in depth with our contractors and we will negotiate the best possible agreement that will answer the concerns of our members.

Our Committee, led by our Business Manager John Maraia, has much experience in bargaining contracts and negotiating and we are confident that we can come out of these sessions with a contract that will address our needs in these hard times.
