Local IBEW 134
Partnership with Local 134 Electrical Union
Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, St. Rita has begun a partnership with the Local 134 Electrical Union, based out of Alsip. Local 134 is sponsoring a STEM competition in which St. Rita will be participating in, with our STEM program students.
Interested seniors will have the opportunity to visit Local 134 this Fall for a visit with hands-on learning and an in-depth experience. This will provide instruction for our students and a chance for them to network with other members of Local 134. Our Junior class will visit later in the year, after the senior class.
In the coming months, St. Rita plans to launch a course for electrical work and the trades. This could be used as a credit for the Illinois Institute of Technology. The course will occur at St. Rita and also at the Union Hall where Local 134 is based out of.
