The 1890 St. Louis Exposition, an annual agricultural and technical fair, featured the breathtaking electrical wonders of the era. Wiremen and linemen from all over the United States flocked to St. Louis to wire the buildings and erect the exhibits. The exposition workers got together at the end of each long workday and talked about their working conditions. Their stories were the same everywhere: work was hard, hours were long, and pay was sparse. It was common for a lineman to risk life and limb on the high lines in all kinds of weather for twelve hours a day, seven days a week. Two dollars and fifty cents a day was considered an excellent wage for wiremen, and many electrical workers were forced to accept work for just eight dollars a week. However, skilled laborers in other trades earned more; plumbers in large cities averaged a daily wage of $3.37 and bricklayers and masons earned an average of $3.88 per day. Another concern was that there was no training, and safety standards were nonexistent. In some areas, the fatality rate for linemen was one out of every two hired, and the national fatality rate for electrical workers was twice the national average for all other industries.
The First Convention was called in St. Louis on November 21, 1891. Ten delegates met at a boarding house, where Miller stayed, in a poor section of the city. It was a humble beginning—only a tiny fraction of the trade seemed interested in building a national union, and no representatives of southern or western workers attended the meeting.
