IBEW Local 488, Bridgeport Connecticut, received its charter April 1, 1913, with nineteen original members. For over 100 years, Local 488 has grown to provide the cities and towns of northwestern and southwestern Connecticut with a highly trained workforce. As technologies expand and industries transform, Local 488 is driven to continue providing a proven and skilled work force in Western Connecticut. Local 488 also continues to work with state and local officials to meet the needs of our communities with new schools and public service facilities equipped for the 21st Century.
In 2012 Local 488 opened its new headquarters and training facility in Monroe, Connecticut. Through our apprenticeships and continuing education programs we will be ready to meet new technology needs and challenges that lie ahead with the best skilled craftsmen for the electrical industry. 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.
