$1 Per Month Dues Increase to International Union Coming on Jan. 1, 2009


November 21, 2008 - In September of 2007, 2,300 IBEW delegates from the United States and Canada met in Cleveland, Ohio for the 37th IBEW International Convention. In support of the goal of building the union, IBEW leadership announced an initiative to hire 100 organizers throughout the organization and to form organizing councils on a regional basis. This aggressive organizing strategy has already begun to bear fruit, with membership increases in all areas of the Brotherhood.

To fund this ambitious plan, the delegates voted for a $1.00 per month International dues increase, effective January 1 2007, an additional $1.00 in 2009, and another $1.00 in 2011. The second of three $1.00 increases will take effect on January 1, 2009.
