Historical Note

The beginnings of the IBEW are in the Electrical Wiremen and Linemen's Union No. 5221, founded in St. Louis, Missouri in 1890. Sufficient interest was shown in a national union, and the National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (NBEW) was officially formed in 1891. The American Federation of Labor chartered the NBEW as an AFL affiliate that same year. At the 1899 convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the NBEW's name was officially changed to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). Today the IBEW represents nearly 750,000 workers and retirees. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 72 is a current and longstanding union local in Waco, Texas whose members represent both “inside” and “utility” electrical trades.
