The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 278 was chartered on April 24, 1926. Charter members were: G. Cowan, Archer Schultz, Charles Featherton, Walter Hoffman, Richard Pitts, C. M. Mathieu, James Hendricks, W.J. James and Harry Wells. The first working agreement was signed on May 1, 1928 and consisted of only two pages. We have come a long way since that time and we believe the charter members of our local would be proud that IBEW Local Union 278 is still a leader in the community and is revered by all of the other unions in our area.

IBEW Local Union 278 is primarily an inside local union. We have approximately 500 members of which the vast majority are classified as inside wiremen. Our inside contractors have the capability and expertise to perform electrical installations on any residential, commercial, and industrial project. Our contractors also have the best trained service technicians and are fully equipped to handle any electrical problem in our jurisdiction. We also have jurisdiction in electrical manufacturing, government, and outside line work.


If you are interested in taking continuing education online at home, please download this document and let us know which course you would like to take.  You will get credit for taking the course with the union.

If you are needing to fill out a Journeyman or Master Electrician Application to take your test, you can download these.  If you need assistance, please call  us at the office and we assist you in filling it out.  We have sample applications available also.
