    Updated On: Apr 07, 2020

    The founders of the IBEW understood six basic points about

    the construction industry that they applied to their efforts

    to organize a national union. Each of these principles is listed

    below. Also, each point poses a question that we must answer

    today, just as our founders had to answer it a century ago.

    • Construction is critically important to the national economy.

          (Who will ORGANIZE the supply of skilled labor?)

    • Construction is impossible without craft, skill and knowledge.

           (Who will CONTROL the supply of skilled labor?)

    • Construction employers generally lack the will and resources to train an adequate supply of skilled labor.

           (Who will TRAIN the supply of skilled labor?)

    • Construction is a boom-and-bust industry.

           (Who will MAINTAIN and REFER the supply of skilled labor?)

    • Construction employers come in many sizes.

           (Who will CONTROL the small work in the jurisdiction?)

    • Construction operates in a local market.

           (Who will ORGANIZE and CONTROLthe local costruction market?)
