No Strikes – No Lockouts
The IBEW hasn’t had a strike in the industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) sector since our joint proposal process took effect in 1990.
Here’s how the joint proposal process works in a nutshell. Every three years, before the expiry of existing contracts, we negotiate new contracts with our employers. Work continues on your job sites the whole time without interruption.
The Joint Proposal a process has been working extremely well for almost thirty years. It ensures stability, predictability, and a seamless flow of revenue for contractors.
