“Welcome to the official website of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 98. We appreciate your interest in our local union and thank you for taking the time to visit. Here you can learn more about our 100 year-plus history, our mission, our leadership, the unmatched training we provide our members, our signature projects, and our commitment to the people of the City of Philadelphia. Please visit us often!
I have always said that the best way to never forget where you come from is to never leave. Since 1993, I have been honored to serve as the Business Manager of IBEW Local 98. This place is home to me. Our 5,000 members are not only the best in the electrical industry, they also are some of the best people I’ve ever known. Likewise, our signatory union contractors are the best in the business. We appreciate their loyalty and are grateful for our mutually beneficial business relationships. We have come a long way over the past 21 years and stand now as one of the most successful and respected local unions in the nation. We reached this pinnacle through hard work, smart politics, effective organizing, and the development of a highly educated, unparalleled union workforce. And the journey’s just begun. We’d love your company along the way.”
