stop by any time for a tour!

IBEW Local 51 Enters the Digital World!

Good news for all our members, the Local is now accepting Debit and Credit cards!!!! Members may come to the hall and pay their dues or buy merchandise by using their Debit/Credit cards.

The Local is also able to take the member’s Debit/Credit card information over the phone for dues. This is a valuable addition to the services that the Local has implemented. Members may also pay their dues via phone using their checks, but they will also need to fax a copy of the check to the Local 51 office with a statement stating they authorize the local to use their information. Any members wishing to utilize this service need only contact the hall, anyone of our clerical staff can assist the members with any questions on this new service they may have.
