IBEW Members Broadcast Super Bowl LIII on CBS from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA

If you happened to see any of Sunday's Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots on CBS, then you saw your IBEW brothers and sisters hard at work on the sidelines and in the production trucks.

For the 28th time in Super Bowl history, IBEW camera personnel and technicians were responsible for bringing audiences around the world the sights and sounds of the NFL's biggest game.

There were nearly 300 members on the show, many of whom are from Local 1220, that worked in roughly 15 different job classifications - camera, audio, utility, replay, video engineering, graphics, editing, etc.

Sunday marked the 20th Super Bowl broadcasted by CBS, the most of any American network, and every single one of them has been done with IBEW labor. FOX Sports has also broadcasted 8 Super Bowls with the help of the IBEW.


NEW Fall 2019 Dues Policy

Effective immediately, Local 1220 will be aggressively collecting on all accounts with back dues of $500 or more. Too many of our members are carrying large balances that threaten the health of the Local.

The annual Holiday party has been cancelled. A vast majority of our training has been cancelled. We're cutting back on all non-essential travel and conferences. We can't, however, cut our way to a solution.

Beginning in the 4th quarter of 2019, members will have the choice of paying the balance immediately, or going on Dues Checkoff for a fixed monthly dollar amount until the balance is paid off.

Dues Checkoff allows more flexibility for our members to pay off their debts over time. If you're not on Dues Checkoff now, please consider this option to avoid the calls and notices to your employer.

Our next upcoming Union meetings will be held on:

>Thursday, August 8

All meetings begin at 7:00 pm.

Refreshments will be served.


Executive Board Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month.
