Why is Union Membership Better?
IBEW Local 104 has assurances in place, gained through collective bargaining with our employers, to make certain that our members enjoy fulfilling lives, rewarding careers and stable retirements. In fact, union workers like the linemen of Local 104 have greater job stability than their non-union counterparts in large part because they are more satisfied with their jobs because they receive better pay, have better benefits and have access to fair grievance procedures.
Our collective bargaining agreements also help protect our members from unjust discharge. Management must have “just cause” for any disciplinary action taken against a union employee.

They provide me with a great income. They provide me with great backing if there is an issue on the job. They make sure I get a tremendous amount of pay and a great pension. What’s not good about being a member of 104?
