Brief History of Our Union
Updated On: Jan 15, 2013

 

The nucleus of our Brotherhood formed in 1890 in St. Louis, Missouri. The group was chartered as the Electrical Wiremen and Linemen’s Union, No. 5221, of the American Federation of Labor (AFL). On November 21, 1891 the first convention was called in St. Louis with ten delegates representing 286 members. One of the outcomes of this first meeting was the creation of the Preamble printed above, and the name of the organization – National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers – was chosen. Even our emblem, the hand grasping the lighting bolt, was established at this first convention.

1899 At the Sixth Convention, the name of the union was changed to what it is today: International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
1919 - Council on Industrial Relations (CIR) is established.
1920 - After several moves the IBEW headquarters is relocated permanently to Washington, D.C.
