Message from Your President- Business Manager
Updated On: Jun 16, 2015

July 10, 2012

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Your newly elected Officers and Executive Board Members were just sworn into office. On their behalf I would like to take a moment to thank you for your support. As we take office we are all aware of the challenges that lie ahead. 

IBEW Local 21 represents over 7,500 members working at AT&T, Altura, CenturyLink, Comcast, City of Chicago 911 OEMC, Frontier, Johnson Controls, Julie, Verizon, and Peoria and Vermillion Counties to name just a few. It will take all of us working together to fight back against the attacks we are facing. An injury to one is an injury to all.

We all must unite and do what it takes to move our Local forward. It is our goal as your leaders to build a sense of community within Local 21. If our Sisters and Brothers at the 911 Center, Comcast, Johnson Controls, or any of our employers have a labor dispute we all share in that fight. If a picket line goes up at one employer we will need members at all employers to join those members on their line. We all must be involved in our Union.

Your new leadership will be truthful and transparent in all of our actions. We’ll tell you the facts whether they are good or bad. We won’t shy away from telling you news you may not want to hear. We will put the right people in the right jobs and support your Executive Board, staff, and stewards with the tools and resources needed to get the job done. We will lead by example.

We are a strong Local with a proud membership. We can become more powerful and achieve greater gains by standing together as a united membership. Join me as we write the next chapter in our Local’s history. We are all in this together.

In Solidarity,

Paul Wright
President- Business Manager/Financial Secretary
IBEW Local Union 21
