The original IBEW Local 1 Charter
St. Louis is honored to be the birthplace of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Since IBEW Local One's establishment as the first local chartered by the International Union, the local has played a crucial role in the progress of the St. Louis region and in the advancement of the IBEW. Following the founding of IBEW Local One on Nov. 21, 1891, local union members enjoyed work opportunities in a climate of business expansion. IBEW Local One membership grew as members met the needs of the industrial age.
