We earnestly invite all workers belonging to our trade to come forward, join our ranks and help increase our numbers, until there is no one working in our trade outside of our brotherhood.

Our goal at local 773 is to supply union representation to all 309a electricians and apprentices in the residential, commercial and industrial areas. In order for the I.B.E.W to accomplish these goals of standardizing wages and benefits in the electrical industry, we need you!
Local 773 provides a number of training programs for members. Our current training programs are mostly held at the union hall facilities and we are continually developing new programs to increase the skillsets of our members for the future. Training programs are available to all of our membership.
November 28, 1891
the National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (NBEW) was founded in St. Louis, Missouri, representing 286 members employed in the electrical industry. The goal? To look out for the people doing one of the toughest jobs in the country.
December 20, 1899
It wasn’t long before the NBEW’s commitment to keeping people safe moved north. On December 20, 1899, the Canadian arm of the NBEW set roots down in Ottawa, and at its sixth convention in 1899, the name was changed from the National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
Today, we represent members from coast to coast to coast – in every province and territory. And as the country advances into new electronic technologies, we do too. We now represent more than 780,000 members in all kinds of industries including: utilities, manufacturing, construction, telecommunications, cablevision, radio and television, shipyards, railroads, sound and alarm, appliance repair, motor shops, sign shops, pulp and paper mills, mining, and government.
IBEW Local 773 received its charter from the international office July 25, 1918. While the size of our brotherhood has changed, our commitment to keeping our brothers and sisters safe, highly skilled, and being there for the country, 24/7, 365 days a year (and 366 days on leap years) will never waver.
The IBEW has members in both the Canada and the United States.
