MEMBER SERVICES

IBEW SYSTEM COUNCIL NO. 11

IBEW System Council No. 11 union dues pay for many services including protecting our health and safety. For all union services contact your Local Representative. He or she can help you with questions about the union, work assignments, benefits, the collective agreement, your pension and more.

For union services the first stop is your Local Representative.

PROTECTING SIGNALS AND COMMUNICATIONS EMPLOYEES 

IBEW System Council No. 11 represents over 1,400 railroad signals and communications employees across Canada. Our members install, fix, maintain and improve many elements of the industries’ signals and communications systems.

We represent both men and women who install and maintain signals and trackside equipment for most of the railroads in Canada. Automatic signals and switches installed and maintained by signals and communications workers allow railroads to move large numbers of freight and passenger trains at high speeds and with great safety.

Signals and communications workers also install and maintain the warning systems used at railroad-highway crossings.

IBEW System Council No. 11

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

Your membership in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council No. 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.
