On behalf of the brothers and sisters of Local Union 488 IBEW, I would like to welcome you to our website.
IBEW Local 488, Bridgeport, received its charter April 1, 1913, with eighteen original members. For over 100 years, Local 488 has provided the cities and towns of northwestern and southwestern Connecticut with a highly trained workforce. With a mission to create and ensure a workplace that provides safety, fairness and dignity for all our members, we stand for the ideals that have made America the great nation that it is today: democracy, equal opportunities and a chance to live the American dream.
Peter F. Carroll, Business Manager

A RENEW committee has been created by some of our members for our local so that we can be more involved within our communities as well as within our local. As a kick off for the committee, our members participated in the Relay for Life of Trumbull/Monroe on June 14th. Despite the pouring rain that weekend, the turn out was great. We also had a blood drive on January 18th which was very successful, and more recently we ran a bus trip to Mohegan Sun Casino on March 14th, we had a good turn out and a great time was had by all.
Meetings are on the third Monday of the month at 6PM at the Union Hall, 721 Main Street. The meeting is on the same day as the regular membership meeting, so come on down and see what we are all about!!
