Welcome to the Site of IBEW 81, The Scranton Electricians

A message from Business Manager/Financial Secretary Richard Schraeder: I would like to pay tribute to all of our past members whose sacrifices, energy, imagination, and commitment have brought us to the end of our first century as a local union. What a tremendous legacy they have given to us and to those who will follow. The benefits of their existence and determination are so very evident to all of us today. The struggles of the past have provided the rewards of the present. A fair wage, life and health insurance, an annuity plan, vacation fund, a national pension plan, and the home of our local union, "The IBEW Building," are just part of the legacy our past members and retirees have given us. Our 110th Anniversary is the right time for all of us to pause and reflect on these blessings.

Please come in to our new site and read more.
