Thirty-six year member Greg Schwartz entered our Inside apprenticeship program at just eighteen years old. A second generation Local One member, Greg's father was the President of IBEW Local Vote for the Unity Club Candidates!1145 Sign Erectors before they amalgamated with Local 1 on October 1, 1965.

An experienced steward and foreman well known for his mechanical skills, productivity, and knowledge of our working agreement, Greg would be selected by late Business Manager Donald Bresnan Sr. to attend labor law class at Saint Louis Community College. Throughout his career Greg has supported the efforts of Local 1 Representatives to secure and protect our jurisdiction, volunteering to assist them during official jobsite actions.

In 2011, Greg was elected to the Examining Board and in his own words, fulfilled his first term, “With great honor.” Greg’s strong work ethic and conviction to the backbone of our union made him the right choice to elevate to the position of Officer on the Executive Board in 2015 upon the resignation of Brother Tim Murray.

Greg supports the working men and women of IBEW Local One, and wants to carry on the tradition of our membership. “I realize the tough challenges we face today and I will work hard to keep this local and its members going in the right direction. Thanks to my father, I remember where I came from and how I got here. Remember, one for all and all for one!”

Business Manager Frank Jacobs and the entire Unity Club recommend Brother Greg Schwartz for Executive Board!
