We are the men and women of IBEW Local 25  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 Long Island.

Local 25 has been on Long Island since 1932. 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.

Safety : Jan-Feb 2013


With the passing of Sandy the work on our infrastructure has increased, which is a positive thing.  The bad part is the work is out in the elements.  Working outside can make any project a bit more uncomfortable.  The low temperatures and wind only make working that more dangerous.  Some of the things to keep in mind while working outside include:

EWMC : Sept-Oct 2012

Throughout this year’s election season, our COPE Committee has called upon the EWMC time and time again. We have stepped up and provided support for our local, state, and national elections. Our EWMC Chapter has worked with the Islip Town branch of the NAACP Civic Engagement Committee and their Voter Registration Team. We provided additional manpower during the voter registration drives at local high schools, libraries and sporting events by helping to meet the quota of newly registered voters that the NAACP provided as a guideline.

Cope Committee Update : Sept-Oct 2012

This year’s Presidential election may be a close one but for Labor it appears the choice is clear. Watching Romney standing at the podium on February 23rd in Phoenix on C-span stating that our unions were the problem and as soon as he wins the election he will end Project Labor Agreements and repeal the Davis Bacon Act should scare all of us.

I had been non-union for many years before I joined Local 25, I know all too well what it’s like not having a membership watching
each other’s back.


“Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Good Unionism”

These were the words displayed for all to see as we entered the Union Hall of IBEW, Local Union #3. Justin Wadelton, Chris Distefano, Kevin Starke, and I were invited to attend The Young Workers Conference hosted by Local Union #3 with the permission of our Business Manager, Kevin Harvey.
