For the Canadian guys, the difference I see here is the CUSW is the main go to union for Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation and IBEW does everything, but loses on the above contract work.
I may be wrong. Can anyone explain the difference and which is preferred?
I'm an apprentice with Local 126 in PA. I am curious about the difference between IBEW locals in the US and Canada. Can a lineman (or apprentice for that matter) from an American local sign the books with a Canadian local?
I've heard of Canada using a "Red Seal" certification for linemen. What...

Thought that this may help those local Stewards discuss such things as grievances and local issues and to help each other with advice and insight. could also be a quick post to let others know what to grieve when we have a issue..........
Wow I cant believe it. 2% pay increment in 2 years, thats pretty good except for the fact that dues and insurance will go up and probably put us in the negative for a raise! I cant believe people are satisfied with this. I cant believe that members of organized labor just give up so easily!!!! ...
Our Unit just went through its votes for our most recent proposed wage increase. It seemed to me that it was easily a 2 to 1 vote (Not Actual amounts) in favor of “NO”. In our particular Unit the members feel that it is needed to have a divided floor and members need to be present in order to...
