  • Great Pay
    Updated On: Aug 10, 2021

    There’s no question that our members’ wages and benefits are exceptionally better than their non-union counterparts.

    According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics* the median weekly wage of construction workers in 2018 was:

    Union = $ 1,210

    Non-Union = $ 819

    The reason for this nearly 50% difference is very simple: it's collective bargaining. Union members negotiate their wages, benefits, and working conditions as a group.

    How do you negotiate a wage increase?

    Some construction workers have the ability to secure an above-average wage. The question is: who sets the average? In an area where union density is high, the average wage is higher.  Are you getting an above-average rate of a below-average wage?

    Local 153 members make $36.50 per hour; $1,460 per week; $73,000 per year; working 40 hours a week!

    Benefits Local 153 members enjoy are in addition to this pay.

    Electrician training is generally the same from state to state. That being said, electricians have the same skill level from coast to coast. However, the wage and benefit rates are drastically different between areas. The reason for the difference is union density. The cost of living in any area has much less influence on wages than union density.
