Welcome to IBEW 143!
We are the men and women of IBEW Local 143 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 Harrisburg, PA.
Local 143 was chartered on March 17, 1916. 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.

IBEW International President Lonnie R. Stephenson issued the following statement regarding Joe Biden’s clean-energy plan:
“Vice President Joe Biden’s clean energy plan is more than just an ambitious and comprehensive blueprint to combat climate change and put our country on the path to a sustainable future. It is a massive investment in millions of American jobs, doing everything from rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure to retrofitting tens of thousands of homes and offices.
Attached are two documents that spell out why the IBEW has endorsed and supports Joe Biden. You will see that he has supported the IBEW in the past, and his plans for his presidency will improve the lives of not only IBEW members and their families, but all working people.
