New Organized Members, Welcome!

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

It is with great pleasure that we announce that IBEW in-house technicians employed by the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ recently exercised their rights under the National Labor Relations Act to elect to be represented by IBEW Local 1212.  We applaud the strength and solidarity of these workers who stood steadfast in their efforts to seek representation.  

The Prudential Center opened its doors in 2007 and is home to Devils hockey, Seton Hall basketball, along with events that vary from Disney on Ice and college graduations to concerts and Monster Jam. 

Please join us in congratulating the newest unit in our strong and committed Union. We look forward to getting to work on their first contract. 

Fraternally,
