Grassroots Resources

The Government Affairs Department focuses its Grassroots Program on educating, registering, and mobilizing members via four communication channels: worksite action, door knocking, phone banking, and local union publications. Together, we can inspire members to stand up for issues affecting working families, communicate with elected officials, and vote for labor champions.

What you should know:

  • The IBEW Constitution, Article XVI §3 states that every local union shall have a registrar, and Article XVII §1(e) sets forth the registrar’s duties. However, a local union is not limited to just one registrar; depending on the size or structure of the local, it may be more effective to have multiple registrars.
  • Registrars are responsible for informing and communicating with members about the importance of political action. The IBEW is committed to providing the resources to help registrars carry out their roles. The registrar center is secured and available only to registrars, district and state political coordinators, and administrators.
