Passing of IBEW President Emeritus Ed Hill

December 1, 2018

With sadness we share that IBEW International President Emeritus Ed Hill has passed away.

He was a Journeyman Electrician, a labor leader, and President of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), AFL-CIO from 2001 until his retirement in 2015.

In a message to members upon his appointment as International President, Hill said, “Some leaders in Washington revel in hobnobbing with the powerful. I recognize the importance of a strong presence in the halls of power, but I know that any power we wield comes from our strength in numbers and our solidarity as working people.”

May he Rest In Peace and in Power.

The IBEW family mourns the loss of Brother Hill and our thoughts are with his family.
