IBEW Local 1 is broadening opportunities for women to advance their careers and shape the future of the union by creating a new women’s committee.  According to the St. Louis Labor Tribune, “The committee’s goal is create a social environment not only for IBEW Local 1 sisters, but for Local 1 brothers, women in other unions as well women seeking to enter the construction trades. The committee also has a charitable arm and is planning several efforts focused on giving back to the local community.”  IBEW Local 1 Business Manager Frank Jacobs noted, “This committee along with our EWMC [Electrical Workers Minority Caucus] and RENEW [Reach-out and Engage Next-Gen Electrical Workers] and our soon-to-be added Veterans Committee will give members more opportunities to interact on a more social level with other members and strengthen the bond between the brothers and sisters of Local 1, which can only strengthen our union.”
