About Us

Welcome to the website of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 435. We are located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and represent workers in the Telecommunications, Alarm, Call Centre and Lotteries industries. We currently represent approximately 900 members, who work for MTS Allstream, AAA Alarms, ADT Alarms, ProTELEC Alarms/Servo Electronics, TigerTel Communications and Manitoba Lotteries.

Our members have been working hard looking after Manitoba’s telephone needs since 1904, and with technology changes they now install and repair a multitude of services including High Speed Internet, TV, and Wireless.  Other members are hard at work supplying homes and business’s with alarm and security needs as well as handling important after hours emergency calls through call centres. Our members at Manitoba Lotteries are working hard to install and maintain slot machines and VLT's in Manitoba's casino's and Bar's.

Our members are located throughout the province, and are a big part of various communities, they are active in coaching sports, volunteering and if you look at the companies we represent you probably know one of our members.

As union members, we bargain collectively with our employers over wages, benefits, and rights. The IBEW both in Canada and the USA represents roughly 750,000 members in a wide variety of industries.
