Travel Letters
When going to sign the Books in other Locals please make sure you have your dues receipt and a current Travel Letter.  Please call the Hall ahead of time if you are needing either of these.

The Beginning...
Henry Miller
Henry Miller, the first President of the IBEW, died in 1896 without enough money for a decent burial.  Miller was not alone.  In the early part of the 20th century accidental electrocution among people employed in the electrical industry occurred with such frequency that many insurance companies refused to insure the lives of electrical workers.  Others set the premiums so high that the typical electrical worker could not afford to maintain life insurance for his or her survivng family.  In response to this dilemma members of the IBEW established a fraternal death benefit association in 1922 whose essential purpose was to provide the named beneficiary of a deceased member a sum that might permit our members to be interred in a dignified manner.  That was later merged with the IBEW Pension Benefit Fund.  You can view more on that here.  Also, if you click on the picture above you will be able to view a short movie detailing how the IBEW came about.
