Why should I join IBEW Local Union 520?
IBEW members earn more than their non-union counterparts - period!
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics1, IBEW members in the construction industry may earn up to 50% more than non-union workers.
The Austin Electrical JATC was created through a partnership between IBEW Local 520 and our signatory contractors and provides an apprenticeship program and continuing education for existing and prospective members in the Austin, TX and Central Texas region.
We work every day for our members and with our contractors to market the benefits of union labor to the business community and meet our goal of employment for every one of our members.
We strive to be a great partner for our contractors, area businesses and our community. We take great pride in our work, our ethics and giving back through programs like Habitat for Humanity.
