What We Do

Representing over 83,000 proud union electrical workers, the CSAEW, known as the California State Association of Electrical Workers, has worked tirelessly for nearly 100 years to improve the health and safety conditions for our diverse membership. You will find us on thousands of jobsites, working across hundreds of classifications – from construction electricians to high voltage linemen to sound and tele-communications to public works administration.

We build stronger communities and advocate for workers every day. Our Apprenticeships and community programs – like VEEP, 2nd Call and #HoMEwork – offer veterans, the formerly incarcerated, and underserved community members high quality careers with great wages and benefits.

CSAEW is part of the powerful International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) which represents 820,000 members nationwide.

We are proud of our record of achievements to advance electrical worker priorities, securely power Californian homes, and advance clean renewable energy. But we won’t stop until all workers in the electrical industry are organized with better wages and safe working conditions.
