IBEW Local Union 21 News

On Friday, May 10, 2019 the IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract covering employees working for the company in DIRECTV call centers. The new tentative agreement must be voted on and accepted by the members of the IBEW. The IBEW SCT-3 will present the contract to its members over the next few weeks through a series of meetings and other communications. After reviewing the new contract we feel our members will agree with the officers and delegates of the IBEW SCT-3 and vote to accept the tentative agreement. The highlights are as follows:

Local 21 and Lake County agreed to bargain in good faith, in an attempt to reach an agreement for Dispatchers at Lake County Emergency Center during these “accelerated” negotiations. There are several issues that require discussion and immediate attention to achieve the best possible agreement for the Emergency Center and IBEW 21 members.

As a result of many discussions that occurred between our IBEW leadership and AT&T all involuntary force reductions were pulled down. Hundreds of jobs in many different departments would have been lost if these conversations didn’t occur. IBEW workforce reductions across all departments in the second quarter of 2019 will occur with only volunteers accepting separation packages. The results of everyone’s efforts have paid off. While no one can guarantee what may happen in the future, today we all can breathe a sigh of relief.
