IBEW Local Union 21 News

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.

Friday June 28, 2019 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 members (IBEW21) working as dispatchers in the Lake County Indiana Emergency 911 Call Center voted to accept the tentative agreement that was reached earlier this month.  The agreement was ratified with a 97.87% vote in favor of the proposal. This new Collective Bargaining Agreement brings opportunities. The Lake County Indiana Emergency 911 Call Center is currently accepting applications. Interested applicants can go to https://lcec911.com/ to get more information.


Monday, June 24, 2019 - The IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract covering over 1,200 employees working for the company nationwide who install and repair AT&T DIRECTV services for customers in the states of Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana, and Washington. The new tentative agreement must be voted on and accepted by the members of the IBEW. The IBEW SCT-3 will present the contract to its members over the next few weeks through a series of meetings and other communications.


Wednesday, June 19, 2019 – On June 11, 2019, IBEW 21 and Lake County, Indiana 911 Center representatives reached a tentative agreement on a new contract covering dispatchers working at the Lake County Indiana Emergency Call Center.

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 (11:00 CST) – On Friday, June 14, 2019 AT&T announced a surplus affecting 200 employees in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The job cuts will affect employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21). Voluntary Separation Packages (VSIPP) are available to eligible employees who are not affected by Friday’s surplus announcement as defined in Article 30.43 of our AT&T Contract. If you would like to save the job of someone whose job is at risk, please consider turning in your VSIPP application today. If you are interested, contact your manager. You must electronically file for a VSIPP today by 5 p.m. (CST) Wednesday, June 19, 2019. The announced surpluses affecting IBEW Local 21 members are as follows:


June 14, 2019 - 2:00 PM Earlier today AT&T announced a surplus affecting IBEW Local Union 21 (IBEW 21) members in Illinois and Northwest Indiana.  In that announcement management informed employees that SIPP packages were being distributed.  They did not offer up any other information or numbers or affected locations.  Many members are asking what is going on. Right now IBEW 21 Leadership is in discussions with the company on how to deal with the surplus and SIPP announcement. Because of these discussions numbers and locations are NOT being released at this time. We know this is frustrating but we do not feel it is fair to play with people’s emotions until we iron out issues concerning the surplus. Simply put things are changing rapidly; by the time you read this message things may have already changed.


Tuesday, June 11, 2019 - The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21) and Lake County, Indiana 911 Center representatives reached a tentative agreement on a new contract covering dispatchers working at the Lake County Indiana Emergency Call Center.


We would like to congratulate our 2019 IBEW 21 Scholarship Winners: Mary Collum Sara Engel, Annie Evans, Jessica Lamberty, Samantha Reattoir. We congratulate our winners and their proud parents!
