IBEW Local 733 was founded in 1939 by a group of marine electricians who wanted a safer workplace, fair wages and, in general, respect for the service they rendered to their community through their labors. In 1939 there were no training programs, no safety regulations, no medical plans, no pension or retirement plans, and nearly half of all electricians were being killed on the job.

Because the IBEW nourished the needs of these workers, this international organization has grown from a handful of pioneers to the largest international electrical union and fraternity in the world. As brothers and sisters, we believe that ALL workers deserve the IBEW standard of living!

IBEW Local Union 733

IBEW Local Union 733 consists of 6 units across the Mississippi Gulf Coast, including Ingalls Shipbuilding, Diversicare of Moss Point , H2O Innovations, NVision, and SAIC. We have over 1,200 members including marine electricians, maintenance electricians, utility workers, nurses, CNAs, and other professional workers. We work with businesses, labor organizations, the greater South Mississippi community, and anyone else who is working toward making a better Gulf Coast. We take pride in our work and are always willing to lend a hand to the cause of good charity.

In short, IBEW Local 733 consists of its membership, which operates in a democratic fashion. The members elect officers and representatives, the members vote monthly on how to spend their union funds, and the members look out for one another on the job site. The members pay dues to support legal representation, handling of grievances, arbitration, contract negotiations, organizing, property ownership costs, and administrative fees.

Read the fine print for
Kashable and Purchasing Power loan contracts

The company has introduced the ability to repay two separate loan companies (Kashable and Purchasing Power) directly from your paycheck... but you will want to make sure you understand the re-payment terms and the differences from a 401k loan before making a decision...
