IBEW Local 456

New Brunswick, NJ

International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 456 has been serving the New Brunswick, New Jersey area for 100 years since being chartered on January 28, 1915. To help celebrate its Centennial Anniversary in 2015, the local commissioned Union Histories to produce a hard-cover 100-year History Book for the local, which it presented to each member as part of a package of anniversary-celebration gifts.

"Union Histories did an outstanding job capturing the tradition of Local 456’s first 100 years because not only did they travel to our Hall and interview everyone from apprentices to retirees, they also visited local libraries and investigated the archives at our International Headquarters. Our members had nothing but positive feedback for the keepsake book, and I recommend any labor organization take advantage of Union Histories' services for a milestone anniversary or just to get your history preserved before that information is lost."

Michael G. McLaughlin, President, IBEW Local 456
