For Veterans

Are you a veteran with an electrical background in the Armed Services?

Making a successful transition from the military into the civilian workforce can be difficult. To help with this challenge and put veterans to work in middle-class careers, IBEW Local 569 participates in the national Helmets to Hardhats program. This program is dedicated to helping National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military members connect with quality career and training opportunities in one of America's most challenging and rewarding industries - construction.

If you are a veteran who worked in an electrical or electronic “Military Occupational Specialty” in the armed services, you may be eligible to participate. Helmets to Hardhats allows you to enter our IBEW 569 apprenticeship program through a special application process or be placed directly as a Journeyman Wireman, depending on your skill level.

To join or to speak with someone directly about becoming an IBEW 569 member through Helmets to Hardhats, please call:

IBEW Votes


We encourage all IBEW brothers and sisters to use to register to vote, stay informed, review IBEW endorsements, and vote for candidates and policies that support working families!

Always, our #1 priority in determining who receives the endorsement of IBEW 569 is whether the candidate or the initiative will result in more work for our members with higher wages, and a better quality of life.
