Nick Sachse is a proud graduate of the first ever Communications Journeyman Technician (CJT) apprenticeship class offered by Local 1. Now an 18-year member, Nick was elected in 2011 to represent the membership as a Delegate to the 38Th International Convention in Vancouver, British Columbia.Vote for the Unity Club Candidates!

Shortly thereafter Nick would be appointed to the Joint Apprenticeship Training Communications Subcommittee, where he evaluates new candidates for the program and then monitors their academic progress once they are accepted.

Nick joined the Missouri Voice-Data-Video (MO-VDV) negotiating team in 2016 and together they successfully negotiated a 9% increase over the contract's 3-year term, a rate above the area-wide average. In addition to these economic gains, the team successfully negotiated double-time language designed to stop overtime abuse during the standard work week.

As the grandson of late Business Manager Roy Sachse and nephew of long-time Officer Dave Sachse, Nick recalls with fondness attending Labor Day parades as a child with his father and his uncles. And when his father was selected as campaign manager during Brother Tom Green’s first bid for the State House in 2000, Nick was by his side, assisting with fundraisers and literature drops. And on the first Tuesday of every month beginning at 6:30 pm you will still find Nick at Tri-County Labor Headquarters working to protect what his grandfather and his family helped build!

As a Communications Journeyman Technician, Nick has served our industry as Steward, Foreman, and General Foreman.

Nick’s appointment to the Executive Board was an evolution of his commitment as a steadfast ally to IBEW Local 1 members and their families.

With the help and support of his wife, Sister Kim Bristow-Sachse, Nick’s understands the level of commitment required to protect, preserve, and grow our union for future generations.
