IBEW 1245 brings the benefits of union representation to a wide range of workers employed in manufacturing.
Members represented by IBEW 1245 build portable substations, train cars, high-voltage electronic distribution systems, and prismatic skylighting, among other products. When you watch the Mars Curiosity Rover exploring the surface of Mars, you are watching the handiwork of IBEW 1245 members, who helped manufacture its components.
IBEW 1245 members work at Advanced Carbon Products, Inc., AnsaldoBreda, Inc., Borden Lighting, Jacobs Technology, Inc. , Sierra Lobo, Inc., Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, NorthropGrumman Corporation, Trayer Engineering, Delta Star, Inc., Cooper-Shaper Lighting, and Sunoptics.
Unit 5000, based in the Bay Area, is the home unit for members in manufacturing. They meet at 504 Ross Dr. in Sunnyvale, CA 94089 on the second Wednesday of each month at 5 pm. As with any sector of IBEW 1245, additional units can be established based on member interest. Manufacturing members elect their own representative to the IBEW 1245 Advisory Council in elections that are conducted every three years.
