IBEW Local Union 21 News

IBEW Members Ratify Agreement with AT&T Friday May 26, 2017 - 5:00pm (C.D.T.) – The membership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) employed by AT&T have voted to accept the tentative agreement that was reached on April 26, 2017.


May 12, 2017 - AT&T Contract ratification ballots were mailed out last week.  If you didn’t get yours call the IBEW 21 Union Hall at 630-960-4466 ext. 0 or contact your Chief Steward or Business Representative.  Complete contract info can be found on ibew21.org.


May 10, 2017 - To help members determine how the economics of the tentative agreement with AT&T affect them we have developed a Wage Benefit Aid.  It contains the economic gains for many job titles over the life of the contract vs the increase in monthly medical premiums. It does not include yearly deductibles or out of pocket expenses because those costs vary from employee to employee based on the amount of times they visit a medical provider. Please note 96% of employees who participate in the AT&T medical plan do not reach the out of pocket maximum. As you will see, the total economic package (wages, 401K and signing bonus) in the tentative agreement far exceeds the health-care cost sharing.


Friday, April 28, 2017 - Earlier this week the IBEW SCT-3 announced a new tentative agreement was reached with AT&T. This update contains more information on changes made to articles, appendixes, memorandums and letters.  More information and a contract overview will be provided at the May IBEW Local 21 Union meetings and specially called meetings.


April 27, 2017 - May Union meetings have changed and additional AT&T Contract Overview meetings will be held during the Month of May. 


Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 2:00pm (CDT) - The IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T reached a tentative agreement on a new five-year contract covering approximately 5,000 employees working for the company nationwide primarily in Illinois and Northwest Indiana.


IBEW Local 21 is proud to sponsor A Soldier’s Journey Home to benefit U.S. Army SPC Anthony (Tony) Chobanov who served in the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq.  On Saturday, May 13th we are asking IBEW Local 21 members to join in solidarity to help build Tony and his family a new home in Spring Grove, IL. Making our donation was the easy part now we need your help to the volunteer please contact IBEW Local 21 Recording Secretary Bob Przybylinski, bobp@ibew21.org, 630-960-4466 ext. 447.


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.
