IBEW Local Union 21 News

March 21, 2017 – Today the IBEW System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) and AT&T agreed to begin “early bargaining" to renegotiate their collective bargaining agreement that is set to expire on June 24, 2017.  The agreement covers employees working for the company across the United States with the majority working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Bargaining will officially open tomorrow March 22, 2017. These will be challenging negotiations. All IBEW members should be prepared to do their part to support their bargaining team. Updates on bargaining will only be released when necessary.


The Cards Cubs solidarity event that we had planned for May 13th has been CANCELED.  The Cards were unwilling to guarantee a fixed ticket price because of their dynamic pricing policy.  Since our last discussion with the Cards they have increase their ticket prices as a result it is with great disappointment that we canceled this event.


Take your IBEW 21 AT&T Bargaining Survey tonight!  All surveys must be completed by Wednesday March 8th.  Your username is your Union Card number. Your password is solidarity21 unless you have previously changed your password.  If you dont know your card number contact bobp@ibew21.org. Save the Date: Cubs – Cards IBEW 21 Solidarity Event Saturday, May 13th in St. Louis.

We were just contacted by Mercy Home and they are hoping more IBEW 21 members and retirees could volunteer for their March for Kids Events that start this Saturday.  They don’t have enough volunteers and need our help.  They know it is short notice but if you can volunteer this Saturday in Forest Park it would be greatly appreciated.


The IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship Committee is accepting 2017 scholarship applications from IBEW 21 members and their immediate family.  Applicants must submit an application and a 1000 word essay or show their creativity on the “Pros and cons of increasing the minimum wage”.  All materials must be received by Friday, May 5, 2017.


As you sit down to dinner tonight talk to your family about the issues that are important to you then take the IBEW 21 AT&T Bargaining Survey. All responses are due by March 8th. Solidarity.


February 22, 2017 IBEW 21 members, retirees and their families are being asked to help spread awareness about the plight of abused, neglected and abandoned young people. Please join your IBEW 21 sisters and brothers by volunteering.  We will March for Kids to help the children served by Mercy Home. Saturday March 4th - Noon Forest Park St.


IBEW Local Union 21 has posted the 2017 AT&T Bargaining survey on our website. It is designed to be completed by all IBEW 21 members currently working at AT&T. We are asking all current Local 21 AT&T members to take the time to fill out the survey completely. The deadline to participate is March 8, 2017.
