Welcome to IBEW Local Union # 141

The History of I.B.E.W. Local Union 141-Wheeling, WV

In 1893 Local Union 21 first appears in Wheeling as an Electrical Workers Union. In July of 1897 Local Union 21 desolved with the years to come to be represented but not formally acknowledged as a Union. A former Local Union from Pittsburg, KS & Frankfort, KY appeared in Wheeling in January of 1902 listed as a mixed Local 142. In November of that same year (1902) Local 141 appears in Wheeling as a Line Local. Eight year later in early 1910 Local 142 disappears and is listed as a mixed Local. The first Convention that Local 141 was mentioned in was 1911. Our Local Union 141 was Charted in 1902. Still going STRONG!
