IBEW Local Union 21 News

We would like to thank all IBEW Local 21 members who donated to our food drive.  You helped collect over 750 pounds of food and $1,367.  When combined that equals 8828 meals for those in need.  You once again proved IBEW 21 members are making a difference in the communities where we live and work. Work Safe- If you are working to restore service after yesterday’s storms remember to use all of your safety equipment and to test for electrical hazards. The hazards you don’t see can be the most dangerous. No job is so important and no service is so urgent that we cannot take the time to perform our jobs safely.

While most of you are thinking about what to do with your kids while they are home from school, we are already thinking about sending them back.  If you have unused school supplies please consider donating them.  In July, we will be collecting supplies for our IBEW 21 Days of Giving Back to School Supply Drive. If you don’t want to hang on to them until then please bring them to a union meeting, the IBEW 21 Union Hall, give them to your Chief Steward or Business Representative, or contact IBEW 21 Recording Secretary Bob Przybylinski.

We are still accepting donations to help our Sisters and Brothers who have been on strike at Verizon since April 13th.  Their fight is our fight.  Watch the video then donate.

IBEW members can purchase discounted tickets for admission to Six Flags Great America on 7/16, 7/17, 7/30 & 7/31. You can purchase tickets for $36 by visiting the Six Flags website. Once you get there, pick Six Flags Great America as your park and in the upper right corner enter promo code: IBEW16

We would like to congratulate our IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship winners.  The scholarship committee met and have awarded scholarships to family members of eight IBEW Local Union 21 members.  Our scholars were awarded based on their interpretation of the role union members play as a positive force in the community. The winners are Jacob Bergman, Sarah Colberg, Natalie Cutrano, Katrina Kerr, Melissa Marcus. Samantha Reattoir. Amanda Rodriguez and Thomas Stancato.

Please donate to the IBEW Unity Fund to help IBEW Verizon members. Our Brothers and Sisters who have been on strike at Verizon since April 13th desperately need your assistance.  After being out on strike for over a month these courageous members have now lost their health care benefits. 

Your Officers, Executive Board and IBEW 21 staff would like to wish all of our Union Moms a Happy Mother’s Day!  We hope all of you have an enjoyable weekend. The IBEW 21 Days of Giving Food Drive is scheduled to wrap up tomorrow. Please help your Chief Stewards and Business Representatives out by bringing the donations from your work locations to the Union meetings that start next week.

After many months of meetings and discussions, AT&T management has notified IBEW Local 21 leadership that the automotive preferencing has been canceled and conversations surrounding the fate of their automotive reorganization are forthcoming.  Your Union leadership will continue to have discussions with AT&T management and update you when necessary. Your solidarity clearly made the difference!!

May Day, also known as International Workers Day, is a celebration of workers that takes places all across the world. Join your IBEW Sisters & Brothers,  the Chicago Federation of Labor, Illinois Labor History Society and Jobs with Justice at the site where it all began as we continue the fight for workers’ rights. Also The IBEW 21 Days of Giving Food Drive ends next Saturday. We are assisting families across our jurisdiction please donate today.

Tomorrow, we are asking all IBEW 21 members to observe a moment of silence and to wear a Union shirt, pin or other union item to honor our Sisters and Brothers and all workers who may have died or were injured while at work. Please also take the time to talk about working safely.   April 28th is Workers Memorial Day and also the day OSHA was established in 1971. As Mother Jones famously said, “We pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living.”
