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.

City Council meeting.
The struggle for working families is not over. Next week (4/27-5/1) more communities are considering the Governor's Turnaround Agenda. If you live in these areas, make your opposition heard.

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