IBEW Local 265’s Membership Development Department:
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 265’s Membership Development Department is committed to improving the lives of Nebraska’s electrical workers and their families. With more than 275 members, IBEW Local 265 is part of one of the world’s strongest labor organizations, representing workers in a range of skilled occupations in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government. The Brotherhood has members in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Panama Canal Zone, Guam and Saipan.
Built on the principles of family, fairness, justice and equality, the IBEW reflects the fact that union members enjoy superior wages and benefits for their abilities. For these reasons, the IBEW Membership Development Department is dedicated to advancing the legacy of our founders: joining North America’s electrical workers in a common organization to make a better life for all.
“Our labor unions are not narrow, self-seeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and democracy to the shop floor.” JOHN F. KENNEDY,35thPresident of the United States. Speech, Aug. 30, 1960
“Only a fool would try to deprive working men and working women of their right to join the union of their choice.” Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34thPresident of the United States.
“All that harms labor is treason to America. No line can be drawn between these two. If a man tells you he loves America, yet he hates labor, he is a liar. If a man tells you he trusts America, yet he fears labor, he is a fool. There is no America without labor, and to fleece one is to rob the other.” Abraham Lincoln, 16thPresident of the United States.
"History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them." Martin Luther King Jr.
To organize all workers in the entire electrical industry in the United States and Canada, including all those in the electrical construction trades, utilities, telecommunications, electrical manufacturing, government, railroads and broadcasting.
