Why Hire Union?
Some people like to put down unions and union electricians. They don't know or explore what "union" really means.
When it comes to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), "union" means well-trained, committed, productive, professional electricians. In short, the best electricians in Minnesota.
We are so proficient at what we do that our union workers and contractors often perform work for less than non-union electrical contractors. What else would you expect from someone who cares enough about his or her profession to complete nearly 1,000 hours of classroom training and five years of supervised on-the-job training?
