Apr 20, 2015 - You Can Stop the Madness
Updated On: Jun 04, 2015

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 both union and non-union workers. They are being persuaded to create right to work zones, diminish workers compensation benefits, and pass other legislation that would adversely affect workers. 

As one of the IBEW’s largest locals in Illinois with members living across the State, we must take an active role to ensure that the rights of all workers are protected. We are asking you to please attend local and county meetings in your area to express your opposition to the anti-worker agenda being proposed.

This week (4/19-4/25) the following communities are considering the Governor's Turnaround Agenda. If you live in these areas, make your opposition heard.

  • Effingham County (Effingham): Monday, April 20 4 p.m., 101 North 4th Street
  • Mt. Zion (Macon County): Monday, April 20 5:15 p.m., 1400 Mt. Zion Parkway
  • ·Vandalia (Fayette): Monday April 20, 7:30 p.m., 431 W. Gallatin St
  • Campton Hills (Kane County): Monday, April 20, 6:30 p.m., 5N082 Old LaFox Road
  • Naperville (DuPage County): Tuesday, April 21, 7 p.m., 400 S. Eagle St.
  • Vernon Hills (Lake County): Tuesday, April 21, 7 p.m., 290 Evergreen Drive
  • Wauconda (Lake County): Tuesday, April 21, 7 p.m., 101 N. Main Street

We realize this is short notice. This is because by State law governmental bodies only have to provide 48 hour notice of their meetings and agenda items.     

Union members are already making a difference. In communities where workers voiced their opposition to the proposals, governmental bodies either tabled the discussions or refused to pass them. Please show up at these meetings. 

Your presence will make a difference.

As we obtain information we will send out additional emails, text messages and post additional information on If you can attend the meetings please contact your Union representative, or IBEW Local 21 COPE Director Dennis McCafferty or Recording Secretary Bob Przybylinski.

It is our solidarity that will make a difference in the communities where we live and work.

Forward this message to a friend or co-worker.
