Apr 29, 2011 - Chicago Comcast Workers File Petition to Join IBEW Local Union 21
Posted On: Apr 29, 2011
April 29, 2011-Comcast employees working at the company’s facility located at 721 E. 112th Street in Chicago’s historic Pullman Neighborhood filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to become members of IBEW Local Union 21.  The workers have been meeting for the past year to learn about joining our Union.  They successfully collected authorization cards from a majority of their coworkers expressing their desire to be represented by IBEW Local Union 21. 

IBEW 21 Business representative Dave Webster and Susan Hurley Executive Director of Chicago Jobs with Justice hand delivered a letter to Comcast managers offering them the opportunity to grant the wishes of a majority of their employees by voluntarily recognizing the workers union as IBEW Local Union 21, as allowed under current Federal labor law.  If management declines the request, the workers will be forced into the prolonged NLRB election process.  

Chicago Comcast workers have been working for over ten years to form a union and bargain a first contract with management.  Webster said, “This is a huge step forward for these courageous workers as they yet again attempt to improve their working conditions.

We are asking all IBEW Local 21 members and our allies to help these workers in their struggle for workplace justice.  They will need your support to win the rights we have as Union members.  If you would like to get more involved, please contact Dave at 630-960-4466 ext. 449 or email him at dwebster@ibew21.org.


Solidarity!
