Friday August 2, 2019 - 5:30pm (C.D.T.) – The membership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) covered under the AT&T/DIRECTV agreement have voted overwhelmingly to accept the tentative agreement that was reached on June 24, 2019.
Just a reminder that the IBEW 21 Back to School Drive is underway. Let’s do all we can to help the kids in the areas where we live and work by donating here.
We are trying something new this year for the kids that My Joyful Heart assists. Your work group can also sponsor a My Joyful Heart child for a full or half year. If your group sponsors a child IBEW 21 will arrange for My Joyful Heart to send you information on the child you are sponsoring. They will get gifts throughout the year and your child will send you updates throughout the year!

As our children prepare to start another school year, IBEW Local Union 21 is holding our annual Back to School Supply Drive. We are collecting supplies and donations for IBEW 21 members in need and children assisted by Mercy Home, My Joyful Heart, and Bethany Home.
IBEW Local Union 21 believes in making a difference in the communities where we live and work. We are asking you join us in our efforts by making a donation to our Back to School Supply Drive. Ideally we would like every student to begin the year with the supplies needed to have a successful school year. Building strong communities starts by making sure the children living in those communities have the education needed to be successful in life. Please donate today.
Brothers & Sisters,
IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson is asking that all IBEW members take action to fight a proposal under consideration in the U.S Department of Labor (DOL). The proposal would establish a system in which a non-union contractor could recognize its own “apprenticeship program” that would not be subject to many of the same requirements that IBEW DOL recognized apprenticeships are. Currently the construction industry is temporarily exempted from the proposal. There is great concern that this exemption will not be part of the final regulation. Nonunion builders are eager to eliminate it, opening up the industry to apprenticeships with lower standards and greater risks.
All IBEW members are being asked to submit comments to the DOL in support of the construction industry exemption.
With the lightening and heavy rains that are currently hitting our area that will be followed by the dangerous heat and humidity over the next few days we must remind all members to WORK SAFE! Every year we hear stories of our members and others in our industry who are working hard to perform their jobs but fall victim to heat related injuries. Don’t take unnecessary risks.
The IBEW 21 Back to School Supply Drive starts next week on July 22nd.
Please begin setting up collection areas in your work locations. Your donations will benefit IBEW 21 members in need and school children in the areas where we live and work.
We are trying something new this year. My Joyful Heart assists many students in the areas where we live and work. If you or those in your work group would like to help students at these schools you can purchase a backpack filled with supplies and we will make sure it gets to a student in your area.
Also this year you and those you work with can sponsor My Joyful Heart children for a full or half year. If you or your group sponsors a child IBEW 21 will arrange for My Joyful Heart to send you information on the child you are sponsoring.
