IBEW Local 520 - Licensed Electrician

Providing for your family is more than just bringing home enough money to put food on the table. IBEW Local 520 recognizes this and has fought to help our members receive the benefits they deserve.

Any electricians looking for employment should consider the entire compensation package, which includes a great hourly wage, excellent medical insurance and a good retirement package.

Having good health insurance for you and the family is important. That is why IBEW Local 520 signatory contractors provide family health insurance. Members and their families no longer have to worry or think twice about the cost to see a doctor.

In Texas, employers are not required to provide workers’ compensation as they are in many other states nationwide. As a licensed electrician, if you are hurt on the job because of unsafe conditions, your employer may not offer you any assistance. All IBEW Local 520 signatory contractors are compelled to provide workers’ compensation.

We all work so that we can enjoy life in retirement. IBEW Local 520 has a pension plan that rewards your years of service. IBEW Local 520 members also can contribute to a 401k plan.

If you would like more information about how you can take advantage of the great benefits that are out there, please fill out the form on this page.

Through collective bargaining, IBEW Local 520 electricians know what their wage is going to be. From the time an apprentice enters the trade all the way to their retirement, they can be sure they are earning a fair and livable wage.

Once a journeyman’s license is attained, the electrician earns an hourly base rate. This is not stagnant, as our collective bargaining agreement includes raises as well. If a licensed electrician does not wish to seek a journeyman’s license, their pay will be a percentage of the journeyman base rate based on a skills evaluation.

Under this collective bargaining agreement each hour of work is accounted for. Once an electrician works 40-hours in a week, every additional hour will see at least time and a half in pay.

Equal pay is something that is important to IBEW 520. Regardless of your race or gender, if you have the same level of industry experience, you are guaranteed to receive the same pay. Everyone that joins IBEW 520 is given the same opportunities.

You have the power to take advantage of these competitive wages and improve your situation! Fill out the form on this page for more information.

The only way to keep earning a healthy paycheck and great benefits is to work! Central Texas is seeing many companies come to the region with headquarters, distribution centers and other facilities. The members of IBEW Local 520 build these facilities and the future of our work is bright.

Electricians work is in high demand. From maintenance electrician jobs to work underground, work in hospitals, new build projects and other construction electrician jobs, our contractors are hiring.
