Our MIssion

Welcome to IBEW 143! 

We are the men and women of IBEW Local 143  We are two thousand people who have earned our living and raised our families by working in the unionized electrical construction, maintenance, and telecommunications industries on Long Island. We are your Sunday school teachers, your volunteer firemen, your civic leaders - we are the fabric of Harrisburg, PA.

Local 143 was chartered on March 17, 1916. We have many faces. Sometimes we are a second or third generation of craftsman whose forefathers founded our local. Sometimes we are a new recruit who came into the organization from one of the surrounding communities and sometimes we are a newly organized electrician. We have many faces - but one voice. We pride ourselves on being the finest craftspeople in the world. We are committed to ongoing training to keep our skills on the razor's edge of the newest technology, as well as passing down our knowledge to the next generation of electricians. We stand for decent wages and innovative benefits so that our members can live the American Dream. We welcome you, please click here to learn more about us.
