Heat-Related Illnesses Can be Fatal; Would You Know What to Do?
06/29/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
With the extreme heat and humidity hitting our area we remind all IBEW Local 21 Union members to take proper precautions while working outside, going to and from work, and while enjoying your time at home. We also ask that you check on your co-workers, family, friends, neighbors and all others who may be at risk. All members should review safety documentation given to them by their employers. Supplemental information on working in hot weather can be found on OSHA’s website. Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die.

AT&T Announces SIPP Offers
06/15/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
Friday, June 15, 2018 (11:00 a.m. CST) – Today AT&T officials announced the company is going to surplus four employees in Illinois and offer a General SIPP to employees working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The announcement will affect employees represented IBEW21. Prior to the announcement, AT&T contemplated making deep cuts in the TFS, U-Verse and Central Office organizations. With the Time Warner merger being approved your Union leadership saw an opportunity to lessen the impact of the pending announcement and entered into both formal and informal conversations regarding possible scenarios and their effects. As a result hundreds of jobs were taken off of the chopping block. We are continuing to work to protect as many jobs for as long as we can in the rapidly changing industry in which we work.
