IBEW Local Union 21 News

April 25, 2015 Earlier this week we asked IBEW 21 members to attend meetings where local governments were considering passing a resolution that would be harmful to all workers in Illinois. We would like to start by saying thank-you. You made a difference. In every community where IBEW Local 21 members made their voices heard the harmful resolutions were not adopted. The struggle for working families is not over. Next week (4/27-5/1) more communities are considering the Governor's Turnaround Agenda.


On Tuesday, April 28th, Workers Memorial Day we ask all IBEW 21 members to remember those whose lives were lost and those who were injured as a result of workplace accidents.  Honor their memory by talking about safety in your workplace and renewing your vow to work safely.  Please also wear your union pin, shirt or hat to work.


April 20, 2015 Sisters & Brothers, Illinois is in a state of crisis and it is time for you to act.  Our Governor is pressuring local governments across the State to pass legislation that will harm all workers. This week (4/19-4/25) many communities are considering the Governor's Turnaround Agenda. If you live in these areas, make your opposition heard.


April 14, 2015 The Communication Workers of America (CWA) is in negotiations with AT&T to reach new agreements for employees working in the CWA Midwest region and in the CWA Legacy T Agreement.  Their contracts with AT&T expired on Saturday, April 11, 2015. While these negotiations do not directly affect AT&T employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 we do stand in solidarity with the CWA.


April 2, 2015 Time is running out to apply for an IBEW 21 scholarship.  Applications and essays must be received by Friday, April 24, 2015.  Up to eight $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to Local 21 members or an immediate family member. This year’s essay question is “Looking beyond our own needs, how can Local 21 members help build a sense of community in our Union.


March 19, 2015 AT&T is offering a General SIPP to employees in the Chicagoland area working in the construction splicing title. Management is looking to offer 30 General SIPPS’s to Cable Splicing Technicians in Construction & Engineering working in the Chicago, North Suburban and South Suburban RCA’s. A surplus has not been declared.Those employees interested in leaving the payroll must turn in their SIPP paperwork by Friday, March 27, 2015. The last day on payroll for those selected will be April 10, 2015. For more information please contact your Chief Steward or Business Representative.


February 26, 2015 Find out what is going on “Across the Local” by reading Frontline. The latest issue is on its way but you can read it now before it gets to your mailbox. In this issue you will also find articles about IBEW 21 scholarships, bargaining at DirectSat, and how you’re making a difference in the communities where you live and work.  


February 20, 2015 We are asking all IBEW 21 members, retirees, and their families to join us at St. Patrick’s Day solidarity events in the Chicagoland area. We will build camaraderie while helping the children served by Mercy Home with their “March for Kids” campaign. Click the headline above to find out how you can help the kids.


February 19, 2015 - With the extremely cold weather hitting our area we remind all members to work safely when helping the customers we serve. All members should review safety documentation given to them by their employers. Supplemental information on working in cold weather can be found on OSHA’s website osha.gov.Read more on working safely in the cold by clicking the headline above.
