IBEW Local Union 21 News

The IBEW Local 21 Scholarship Committee met and awarded scholarships to family members of eight IBEW Local Union 21 members.  This year’s essays topics were: “How can the Union grow stronger in the wake of Right to Work?” and “What do you get from growing up in a Union home?" We would like to congratulate our IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship winners: Tyler Dahm Lauren LaMore Cieran Locke Amanda Rodriguez Matthew Rodriguez Lenette Ruiz Kacie Sherman Thomas Stancato.


IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of our Brother Cordell Williams, who worked at AT&T, in the Chicago Heights Garage. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

Read Frontline- The ink hasn’t even hit the paper yet, but you can read your April 2018 issue of Frontline right now. Scholarship Deadline Nears - The IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship deadline is Friday, May 4, 2018. Dress for Success Closet Clean Up Drive - Help the kids at Mercy Home and My Joyful Heart by donating your unwanted clothes.


IBEW 21 Dress for Success Closet Clean Up Drive April 1st – April 30th. Spring is the time of year when we clean out our closets and pitch clothes we will never wear. IBEW 21 members can help the kids at Mercy Home and from My Joyful Heart by donating their unwanted clothing items. As the kids from Mercy Home start their working careers many are unable to dress for success because they can’t afford interview clothing. We all have “dress” clothes we may never wear again. Please donate them and help the kids at Mercy Home start their successful careers.


We are holding our first ever Dress for Success Closet Clean Up Drive from April 1st - April 30th. We will be collecting interview clothes for the kids at Mercy Home and your other clothing donations will help those served by My Joyful Heat. Half price tickets are still available for IBEW Local 21 Member Night with the Bulls on Saturday, April 7th - 7:00 p.m. when the Chicago Bulls take on Brooklyn Nets.  If are thinking about ditching Facebook but use it to get our updates stay in the loop by signing up for our email and texting updates.


March 15, 2018 - Today, AT&T announced they will be reducing headcount by offering a General SIPP to their employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21). No layoff has been declared! Discussions took place between IBEW 21 representatives and AT&T management. The outcome of those talks led to the announcement of a General SIPP Offer and a potential surplus was avoided.


IBEW Local 21 Member Night with the Bulls on Saturday, April 7th - 7:00 p.m. IBEW Local 21 members, family and friends are invited to enjoy watch as the Bulls battle the Nets. On this special night, all IBEW Local 21 members, retirees, family and friends can purchase discounted Chicago Bulls tickets.


IBEW 21 members, retirees and their families are being asked to help spread awareness about the plight of abused, neglected and abandoned young people.  March for Kids is Mercy Home’s annual campaign centered on building awareness of the plight of the children in their care. Every March, thousands of volunteers take to Chicago’s streets at St. Pat's Parades to raise critical funds that give Mercy Home’s kids a safe, loving home, clothing, meals, and a warm bed away from traumatic pasts.


As the result of many conversations between IBEW 21 representatives and AT&T’s Labor Relations Department, on February 14, 2018 the contemplated layoff of IBEW 21 Premises Technicians was stopped.  Since then talks on the implementation of alternatives have taken place. To avoid the contemplated layoff, Premises Technicians are being afforded the opportunity to voluntarily apply for open positions in the IBEW Transfer Plan (NTP) and are also being offered a voluntary layoff allowance for those Premises Technicians who want to leave AT&T.
