WELCOME TO IBEW LOCAL 601
We are Industrial, Commercial, Residential and Teledata electricians, approximately 500 members strong.
Our jurisdiction consists of all of Livingston and Champaign Counties, most of Ford and parts of LaSalle, Piatt, Douglas, Dewitt, Iroquois, McLean, Putman, Marshall, and Woodford. This area is mainly rural but our mainstays are the University of Illinois in Urbana and LaSalle Nuclear Power Station near Marseilles.
The IBEW along with our contractors association (NECA) jointly sponsor an apprenticeship program (NJATC) that is second to none in the industry. This training provides the base for the most qualified electricians available. The NJATC also provides continual journeyman upgrade training.
IBEW Local 601 was chartered in 1913 and our membership prides itself in the fact that we expect and maintain the highest standards of quality, workmanship and loyalty to the IBEW and it's signatory contractors. We welcome all fellow Brothers and Sisters of our trade who have the same goals and expectations to sign our Books.
We earnestly invite all workers belonging to our trade to come forward, join our ranks and help increase our numbers until there shall be no one working at our trade outside of the brotherhood. If you would care to join us contact Rich Hensler.
