We are the men and women of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 35. 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 in Connecticut. We are your Sunday school teachers, your volunteer firemen, your civic leaders - we are the fabric of Connecticut.
Local 35 has been in Hartford since 1913. We have many faces. Sometimes we are the third generation of craftsman whose forefathers founded our local. Sometimes we are youth learning a new trade 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.
Our home is at 208 Murphy Road in Hartford, where our offices and our training facilities are located. Our building is filled with activity day and night, as it is the center of labor activity in Connecticut.
From the beginning, Local 35 provided the opportunity to its members to live the American dream – decent pay and benefits so our members could raise a family with the respect and dignity every American deserves.
We stand for everything that is good about America, democracy, fairness, equal opportunity, quality workmanship, and the chance to live the American Dream. We are Connecticuters that are proud of our heritage and skills. If you are a non-affiliated electrician or contractor or a person that is interested in learning a trade, we want you to join our growing ranks.
