The Voice-Data-National Agreement continues to serve the VDV market effectively and the agreement appears to meet the needs and objectives of contractors and workers. Neither NECA nor IBEW proposed to amend the agreement during the termination window, so the agreement was extended until March 1, 2019, in accordance with its continuous stability clause. The text of the agreement from 2012 to 2015 is therefore the current agreement. Today, in collaboration with the National Electrical Contractors Association, IBEW, under the aegis of the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC), is implementing educational programs for electricians, line judges and VDV installers (language, data and video) (installing low voltage wiring such as computer networks), in collaboration with the National Electrical Contractors Association, under the auspices of the National Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJA) , „to win while you learn.” In Canadian legal systems, IBEW does not provide apprenticeships, but provides additional training for apprentices and publicly trained members, often at little or no cost to its members. IBEW Local 353 Toronto requires all interns to be enrolled in the Joint Apprenticeship Council (JAC) for a number of safety, pre-teaching, pre-negotiation courses, follow-up training and preliminary examination courses. The number of IBEW members peaked at about 1 million in 1972. Membership declined only slowly in the 1970s and 1980s, but has stabilized since then. The dissolution of AT-T, ordered by law, at the end of 1982, in which the IBEW was strongly organized among both telephone workers and at ATT production sites, led to a sharp decline in the number of IBEW members at the end of 1982. According to the official website, the number of members in 2013 is about 750,000.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is a union representing nearly 750,000 workers and retirees in the electrical industry in the United States, Canada Panama, Guam,  and several Caribbean island states. particularly electricians or instigators of the construction industry and line workers and other municipal service employees. The union also represents some workers in the IT, telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic work sectors. It was founded in 1891, two years before George Westinghouse won the power wars by illuminating the Columbian exhibition in Chicago with the alternative current, and before homes and businesses in the United States began receiving electricity. It is an international organization based on the principle of collective bargaining. The international president is Lonnie R. Stephenson and is affiliated with the AFL-CIO.
