IBEW Local 1049: Community strong and Long Island proud!

Who are our members?

You know us as the frontline workers who ensure that electricity and gas service are provided to your home. But IBEW Local 1049 is much more than that. We’re the backbone of the community — your friends, neighbors, customers, and relatives.
  • We’re the young woman checking in on the elderly couple next door.
  • We’re the youth soccer coach who’s up at 6 AM every weekend.
  • We’re the working mom who rushes home to help her child with his homework.
  • We’re the dads, sons and brothers who walk each year to find a cure for breast cancer.
We serve on PTA’s, drive kids to band practice, support local charities, and contribute to the financial strength and tax base of the towns we call home.


We’re the proud members of IBEW Local 1049 — highly skilled, highly trained, and highly committed to making Long Island the best place to live, work and raise a family.
