The Code of Excellence

About The Code of Excellence

The Code of Excellence is a program designed to bring out the best in our construction members and demonstrate to our customers that IBEW members:

  • Perform the highest quality and quantity of work

  • Utilize their skills and abilities to the maximum

  • Exercise safe and productive work practices

The Code of Excellence is not only about a job built right – the first time, on schedule and under budget. It is also about pride in IBEW membership and craftsmanship and leaving a lasting impression of quality workmanship with the customer…who will be motivated to employ the IBEW on future projects. The Code of Excellence program is meant to build and project positive attitudes about who we are and the work we do – both on and off the job.

The Code of Excellence In Management and Supervision Roles

As with Stewards, IBEW members employed in management/supervision must have knowledge of the Code of Excellence program principles, its relationship to IBEW organizing and overall membership responsibilities to the Brotherhood. Yet, more importantly, members in these roles need to know how effectively managing their jobs will be a corresponding obligation to the Code of Excellence program. IBEW ‘rank and file’ members honouring the Code of Excellence program will rightfully have similar expectations of Brothers and Sisters in management/supervision, with these being in the areas of:

  • Management responsibilities to the collective bargaining agreement.
  • Total acceptance of supervisory positions and related responsibilities.
  • Communication and cooperation with the job Steward.
  • Employee encouragement but, if necessary, fair and consistent discipline.
  • Job safety, health and sanitation needs or requirements.
  • Ample job layout/directions to minimize down time.
  • Maximize employee productivity.
  • Availability and timely delivery of necessary materials.
  • Proper number and type of tools and equipment to ensure job progress.
  • Maintenance and upkeep of tools and equipment.
  • Storage and protection of employer and employee tools and equipment.
  • Employ adequate number of employees to perform efficiently or, conversely, limit number of employees to the work at hand.
