HELP CREATE JOBS FOR LOCAL 9
I am asking all members of Local 9 and their families to sign a letter in support of The Rock Island Clean Line project. This project will require 20 miles of transmission work in our jurisdiction along with the construction of a 65 acre substation.
The Rock Island Clean Line project will not only create jobs for our members. It will create thousands of jobs across the construction industry.
Please support this project by clicking here to print the letter and returning it to our office. Please ask your family and friends to do the same. We need jobs to keep our union working strong.
If you have already signed a letter, Thank You!
Robert W. Pierson
Welcome to IBEW Local 9!
Welcome to Local No. 9 IBEW. Established in 1892, our membership has grown to serve 2,400 men and women throughout the greater Chicagoland area and beyond.
We have developed this website as a source of information about our union and its goals, and also as a resource for our members. We at Local No. 9 strive daily to meet these goals and to master the new challenges that face us in today's changing world.
According to the earliest records of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the union's first convention was held in St. Louis on November 21, 1891. Ten delegates, representing 286 members, met to form what was then called the National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Those ten members are credited as being the founders of the IBEW.
