Welcome to Local One, the flagship local union of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the largest union of electrical workers in the world with 881 local unions in the US, Canada, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, with a membership of almost 700,000.

Local One, IBEW, represents more than 5,000 members working in all facets of the electrical and telecommunications industry across Missouri.

As the Midwest’s largest resource for skilled electrical workers, the IBEW Local 1 and our NECA partners commit over $3 million annually training the most highly skilled apprentices and journey-level electricians and communications technicians the industry has to offer.

And our contribution to the community extends beyond our workforce development. Our members and NECA partners have donated over $75,000 to Shop with a Cop, $850,000 improving homes for low-income, disabled, and elderly St. Louisans, and $1.3 million to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity St. Louis.

IBEW, Local One’s leadership in education and community service has established us as a leader in the labor movement. Our continued commitment to these endeavors will ensure Local One plays a vital role supporting the development and economic vitality of the communities where we live and work.

Thank you for choosing the most highly trained and skilled workforce in the electrical industry.
