IBEW Local Union 21 News

As Frontline is running off of the press you can read your copy today. The cover story is about our City of Chicago 911 OEMC members and their fight for a new contract. Read President Business Manager Paul Wright’s article about the importance of voting, find out how you can help Jacquie Fields build our EWMC and Women’s groups, learn your rights, discover what is happening at our employers across our local and there is also important information about AT&T benefits open enrollment.


The AT&T Annual Benefits Open Enrollment period will begin on October 1st at 7 a.m. and continue through November 16th at 7 p.m. Unlike previous years in which the company had “waves” of 2-week enrollment periods for different groups of employees and retirees; this year all employees and retirees will have 7 weeks to complete their enrollment, simultaneously. Enrollment can be completed online (att.com/benefitscenter), by phone (1-877-722-0020) or from your mobile device.


The Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 21 would like to wish all of our members a Happy and Safe Labor Day. Working people are the backbone of our nation and need to be recognized as such, both in word and deed. Too often, those working every day for a better life are forced to take a back seat to corporate interests which care only about their own bottom line. As we celebrate Labor Day let us remember the Labor movement has fought to gain benefits many workers enjoy today.


Our Brother Chief Steward Mike Andel will be receiving the BrainUp Bravery Award at their 5K Run/Walk.  It is often said patients fight a battle with cancer.  In Mike’s case, cancer is waging a war to defeat our Brother who is refusing to back down. While undergoing treatments since last year Mike has shown incredible courage and commitment to his family and the Sisters and Brothers of IBEW Local Union 21 who he represents. He is an incredible father, husband and Union representative. While many have been assisting our Brother in his recovery, Mike is helping others defeat cancer by joining with BrainUp in their fight to find a cure. His commitment to others is unwavering.


We just received the tickets for our first IBEW 21 Sox ticket order and will be sending them out next week.  If you haven’t ordered your tickets for the Chicago White Sox Union Day game on Sunday, September 9th you need to get your orders in ASAP but no later than Friday, August 24th. If you don’t order them soon you may not get your tickets in time.


The membership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21), working at CBRE voted overwhelmingly to accept the tentative four year agreement that was reached on July 13, 2018. For more information contact IBEW 21 Business Representative Mike Grindle.


Union meetings start tomorrow night. We are asking all members to participate in the IBEW 21 Days of Giving Back to School Drive that ends on August 12th.  Donations are slow this year. Please bring your school supply donations to the meetings. Join us on Union Day Sunday, September 9th. Let’s show our Union Pride with the White Sox. Get your orders in ASAP. We would like to place our bulk ticket order soon so we can get your tickets to you in time for the game.


Join us on Union Day at Guaranteed Rate Field on Sunday, September 9th-Game Time 1:10pm White Sox vs. Angels. Special Ticket Pricing for Union Members. $7.84 - Upper Box, $11.20 - Outfield, $26.88 - Lower Box, $10 - Parking Pass, $7.75 - Hot Dog Value Meal. Order Your Tickets Today!


This is your opportunity to donate to the IBEW 21 Days of Giving - Back to School Supply Drive for free! We learned of a great way you can save money and donate to the drive.  Menards has school supplies on sale.  You can buy 10 notebooks and 10 packs of pens and Menards will send you a rebate for the full price of those items that you can use on a future purchase. They also have $3 rebates on backpacks after the rebate your donation will only cost you $3.88. We can use as many backpacks as possible. The charities we are assisting have over 1,200 children in their care. We are trying to help as many as we can. For under $5 you can help ensure one of these children starts the school year with the supplies necessary for them to be successful.


Time is running out for you to join IBEW 21 members at the Kane County Cougars game on Saturday, August 18, 2018.  This is a family friendly event with a pregame concert, postgame fireworks, kids can run the bases and it is also Super Hero night. The deadline to order your tickets is this Sunday July 29th.
