ABOUT IBEW Local 488
IBEW Local 488, Bridgeport, received its charter on April 1, 1913, with nineteen original members. With Sikorsky Aircraft, Remington Arms and Avco Lycoming in our jurisdiction, we quickly grew to meet our nation’s defense needs.
In 1969 we merged with Danbury Local 525, in 1981 with Waterbury Local 660 and again in 2009 with Norwalk Local 208 to increase our jurisdictional area to include most of northwestern and southwestern Connecticut.
As technologies expand and industries transform, Local 488 is driven to continue providing a proven and skilled workforce 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.
