WHO WE ARE
IBEW Local 2304 primarily represents the skilled labor force at Madison Gas and Electric, a small investor owned gas and electric utility serving Madison and south-central Wisconsin. Since 1937 nearly all of the people who do the “physical work” at MGE, serving our community with safe and reliable gas and electric service, have been union members. First organized as “Gas Workers” in 1937 and then into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in 1970, we have been determining the wages, benefits, and working conditions at MGE that we strive to make some of the best in the utility industry.
IBEW Local 2304 also represents the professional staff members of Madison Teachers Inc. who represent many of the teachers in our community. MTI has historically been one of the most influential teachers’ unions in Wisconsin.
The staff collective at WORT radio are also IBEW Local 2304 members. WORT is a listener sponsored, community radio station that can be found at 89.9 FM. WORT has been instrumental in the vibrant live music scene in Madison and provides critical journalism necessary for a democracy.
Finally, IBEW Local 2304 represents field workers at For Our Future. For Our Future is a progressive nonprofit organization with staff working on campaigns in several states across the country. Our bargaining unit at For Our Future consists of Senior Organizers, Digital Organizers, Full and Part time Canvassers. Staff at For Our Future works to elect progressive, pro-union leaders up and down the ticket.
We are a small local union with a big agenda; which based upon democracy in decision-making we engage the Employer and the community in an effort to make both a better place to work, live, and play.
