Scott McCoy, Business Manager
Welcome to IBEW 457!
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 457 was chartered in 1972. We represent approximately 1200 working men and women in CT. Our workforce is on the properties of Eversource Energy, FirstLight Power Resources, Norwich Public Utilities and NRG Energy, Inc.
Our mission is to protect the rights and safety of all our workers throughout the various contracts and work locations. To that end we administer and negotiate 12 different contracts. Our office is in Berlin, CT, where we have a staff of two working full-time; Business Manager and Assistant Business Manager. The office is open Monday thru Friday 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It is closed from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. daily for lunch.
The opportunity to bask in the glow of appreciation for working people does not come often, particularly in the presence of high-ranking elected officials, including the President of the United States.
The Biden administration invoked the Defense Production Act to ease supply chain issues around solar panels on June 6, while continuing its investigation into possible Chinese trade violations.
