To all Brothers and Sisters of the IBEW:

On Monday, May 3  2021, the office of  IBEW Local 175  will reopen to the public. We will return to our pre-pandemic schedule:

8-5 Monday-Friday with extended hours (7:00pm) on meeting nights.


The North American Building Trades Unions website continues to maintain exceptional resources pertaining to COVID.

Many of you have experience COVID first-hand, while others have been witnesses to its devastating effects. I'm sure everyone who reads this will have been touched in some direct way by COVID. I have lost some really close friends to the disease and its side and after-effects. 

Work in our jurisdiction, while not booming, has held pretty steady to have experienced such a tough enemy. I realize that several of you are traveling for work at this time. Hopefully, our work will increase as we move away from the pandemic and into good weather. 

On Tuesday, April 28th, Local 175's staff met with IBEW 10th District International Vice President Brent Hall to discuss Local 175's referral policies. We have been directed to change our policy on "dings" or "strikes." The new policy is posted on the Job Information page. Please familiarize yourself with it. Like it or hate it, it is how we will conduct business beginning May 1, 2021.
