Why should you join IBEW Local 520?

For over 100 years, IBEW Local 520 has been providing Central Texas electrical workers with representation, which allows them to provide for and take care of their families. The training opportunities are top-notch and the benefits are second to none.

Quality Training

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 520 trains all our apprentices and journeymen wiremen through the Austin Electrical Training Center. Local 520 signatory contractors benefit from having the right combination of apprentices and journeymen to stay competitive, while helping prepare a new generation of highly skilled electrical workers.


IBEW 520 believes the number one priority on a jobsite is the safety of our members. With updated safety training, IBEW 520 members return home safely at the end of the work day.


Through collective bargaining, Local 520 secures great benefits for our members and their families. This includes quality family healthcare and solid retirement benefits such as a 401k plan and pension, so our members can retire with confidence.

Member Information Website

The member website will post information and updates to keep our membership informed about industry information and the ongoing operations of Local 520.
