For over 100 years Electrician's Local 34 has been here for our members, contractors and, most importantly, our customers:
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was founded November 28th, 1891 in St. Louis, Missouri. IBEW Local 34, an affiliate of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, was founded in September 1899 in Peoria, Illinois. Our main office is in Peoria, but we also maintain offices in Quincy and Galesburg. We represent over 900 industrial, commercial, and residential electricians, nearly 100 communication techs, and many motor shop techs. And we continue to serve our over 200 retirees, throughout 17 counties in west central Illinois.
Electricians' Local 34 has a positive and progressive Labor-Management relationship with the Peoria Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). Together, we work together to see that highest standards of craftmanship and safety are maintained, and that our customers receive the best value in the electrical industry.
Local 34 received its original charter on September 1, 1899. Local 67 was chartered in 1895 at Quincy, Illinois, and was amalgamated into Local 34 effective October 1, 1976. Local 184 was chartered in 1901 at Galesburg, Illinois, and was amalgamated into Local 34 effective January 1, 1977. Due to geographical distances, local unit meetings are held in Quincy and Galesburg. The regular Union meeting is held in Peoria.

Peoria JATC GREENLEE Campaign: As all of us know, hands on training is one of the cornerstones of a successfull apprenticeship program. The ability to put our men and women in the apprenticeship in front of the equipment they will be installing and maintaining throughout their career, and to receive training from a skilled Local #34 Journeyman, is what sets an apprenticeship program apart from any other form of higher education. This has, and always will continue to be a main focus for our program here in Local #34. One of the key components of this hands on training is having the ability to put the proper tools for the job in our apprentice's hands. As we all know, the proper tool for the job can mean the difference between a safe or a hazardous work environment. We have the opportunity to receive a rather substantial donation to our program from the good people at GREENLEE tools, but this depends on YOU. We need all the votes we can muster in order to have a chance. Please click HERE and fill out the information. We are the Peoria Area Electrical JATC located at 707 NE Jefferson St. Peoria, IL, 61603. We need all the votes we can get!
