Our Vision

About Us

This SC shall be maintained for the purpose of facilitating the work of the Organization of Electrical Workers, apprentices and helpers, for the perfection of the Organization and for the means by which the work shall be handled for the interests of those employed in our branch of the craft and in keeping each member informed of all conditions in which we are interested. This body recognizes the necessity of establishing a closer affiliation and to this end we pledge ourselves; to labor unitedly in behalf of the principles herein set forth and to perpetuate the permanency of a concrete organization which shall have for its object the uplift of all Electrical Workers, and, believing as we do, that our individual local efforts are no longer sufficient to afford us the protection necessary to our success.
