    • Welcome to the IBEW Local Union 1200!

      The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, a union of 750,000 members, is dedicated to securing good wages, solid benefits and safer job sites for its members. Since forming in 1959, IBEW LU 1200 represents hundreds of members who are an integral part of the broadcasting business. With 14 collective bargaining agreements, our members are engaged in every aspect of the industry, working at local television and radio stations of every network affiliation throughout the Southeastern United States, from Maryland to Louisiana. Our LU 1200 technicians are vital to coverage of the vast majority of major sporting events, including NFL football, MLB, NASCAR, the PGA Tour, NCAA football and basketball, and US Open tennis.


      What are Union Dues?

      Union Dues are funds provided by union members to financially support the goals of their organization. The international portion of dues supports the representational, research, legal, administrative and legislative needs of members on a national level. The local union and working dues support members at the local level and expenses such as legal representation, handling grievances, arbitrations, contract negotiations, organizing activities, rents and administrative fees.
       

      To provide the economic resources to achieve their goals, members of LU 1200 determined the amount of union dues paid to their local union by democratic majority vote. The IBEW dues structure is as follows:
       

      IBEW Dues Structure

      Member pays:

      Initiation Fee

      $200 per initiation

      Basic LU1200 due

      $10 monthly

      Basic Per Capita Due

      $18 monthly  

      Basic Working Due

      2% of base wages

      ($25 monthly minimum)

      This office submits quarterly statements to its members in advance of each quarter. The quarters end March, June, September and December. All statements will be billed at the working dues rate, plus the basic local and international dues rates.

      Paying On Time

      Any member whose membership dues are in arrears by 3 months or more will be charged a reinstatement fee of $3. Any member whose dues are in arrears by 6 months or more may be dropped from membership and required to re-initiate.
       

      Any member leaving the industry for greater than two months of time can request to be put on Honorary Withdrawal. This puts your membership on hold until you work again. Honorary Withdrawal status requires notification in writing prior to the first of the following month you wish to go on Honorary Withdrawal, and that your dues are paid current. If you get a call to start working again, send the appropriate working, basic local and international dues, and indicate in writing what month you wish to activate your membership. If your membership is not activated when you start working again, you may be billed for months you did not actually work.

      Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you have any questions please give the office a call at (410) 891-5850.
