Local Union 1687 has been a recognized charter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union since February 8, 1951, and we are proud to be a part of the oldest and largest electrical union in the world.

Local 1687 currently represents the interests of roughly 800 certified Construction and Maintenance Electricians, Powerline Workers, Communication Electricians and registered apprentices of each discipline throughout Northeastern Ontario.

We foster relationships with our signatory contractors, providing a well trained, efficient and safety conscious workforce to help their businesses and our communities grow, while safeguarding our member’s rights.

Whether you are a current 1687 member, or someone interested in a career in the electrical industry or looking for a contractor for your next project, we hope that our website will inform and assist you.

We welcome your comments and suggestions aimed at improving our outreach.
