IBEW Badge
Council 11 Logo


We are a Union representing over 1,400 Signals and Communications employees throughout Canada. Our members work on railroad signal systems to improve safety and efficiency of their operation.


We represent both men and women who install and maintain signals and trackside equipment for most of the nation’s railroads. Automatic signals and switches installed and maintained by Signals and Communications workers allow railroads to move large numbers of freight and passenger trains at higher speed and with great safety.

Signals and Communications workers also install and maintain the warning systems used at railroad-highway crossings, which play a vital role in ensuring the safety of highway travellers.

Our union

With your support and participation and that of other IBEW members, this union will continue to win the best wage and benefit package possible and continue to protect your rights on the job.

Your membership in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Council 11 also gives you the chance to join with other working people to win changes in your workplace, community and country.

Your union is a democratic organization, where members have the right to elect our leaders and decide our union’s policies.
