The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is a labor union that represents nearly 750,000 workers and retirees in the electrical industry in the United States, Canada, Panama, Guam, and several Caribbean island nations; particularly electricians, or inside wiremen, in the construction industry and lineworkers and other employees of public utilities. The union also represents some workers in the computer, telecommunications, broadcasting, and other fields related to electrical work.

IBEW was founded in 1891, two years before George Westinghouse lit up the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition with AC current and homes and businesses in the United States began receiving electricity. The local 110 chapter celebrated it's 100 year anniversary in 2012. Their chapter had originally begun in 1910 as eight workers under the banner of 23 who later formed the chapter.
