About IBEW 120

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers

We are the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, otherwise known as IBEW. A brotherhood, yes, but one where sisters are not only welcome, they are celebrated. Established in 1900 to represent those in our trade with varying levels of experience but equal levels of passion, to this day we continue to rally for the importance having electricians involved, informed, understood and above all, employed. Each and every member of our union makes us unique, but our mission makes us one.

IBEW Local 120 now has over 115 years of experience in supporting the talented electricians of London, Ontario to help give them the foundation they need to work better and ultimately, live better. That’s what makes us so proud of our past, and positive of your future.

“The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 120 is comprised of Electricians, Linesmen and Electrical Apprentices. I am privileged to represent an exceptionally diverse work force that instills quality with pride in every project from the smallest residential project to the largest projects across Canada. Our goals are to foster feelings of family amongst our industry while promoting a culture of safety and security. We encourage everyone to join our cause.”
