November 26, 2014- As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday and the Black Friday sales don’t forget to remember the kids we are helping this holiday season. The IBEW 21 Days of Giving “Toy and Coat Drive” ends on Tuesday, December 2nd.   The children from My Joyful Heart are grateful for your toy donations this holiday season but with the bitter cold that has already hit our area they are also in need of coats, hats and gloves in sizes up to up adult medium.

We’ve reached the halfway point in our IBEW 21 Days of Giving “Toy and Coat Drive”. Mercy Home for Boys & Girls in Chicago needs IBEW volunteers at 2 of their holiday events. We will be joining them as they welcome back their “alumni” during their Aftercare Christmas party on Thursday, December 11th from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. Their second event is their Friends First Holiday Party on Saturday, December 13th from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Click the link above to find out how you can help.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

November 14, 2014- Crittenton Centers Festival of Trees is a community wide event that will surely put everyone in the holiday spirit. It will take place November 21st thru November 23rd at First Federated Church of Peoria’s Life Together Center (corner or War Memorial and Sheridan). All proceeds benefit Crittenton Centers and their work in protecting and nurturing children and families. But to do so, they need the help of IBEW volunteers!

November 12, 2014- With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are asking you to participate in our first ever IBEW 21 Days of Giving “Toy and Coat Drive” to brighten the holidays for children in the areas where we live and work. The drive starts today and will continue until December 2nd. Find out how you can help by clicking the headline above.

November 11, 2014- Today, we take time to remember and thank all of our Veterans. We send special thanks to all IBEW 21 members who have served and who are currently deployed protecting the freedoms we all enjoy. Wherever and whenever you served we would like to say “Welcome Home Sisters and Brothers”.

We will be holding a Local wide toy and coat drive from November 12th – December 2nd.  We will be sending more information out about the drive this week along with a list of gift ideas.  Please hang a bulletin board posting on your Union board download one by clicking the headline above.

November 4, 2014- Have you been saying “Yeah I will get to it”? Did you forget? The good news is you still have time to vote today. The polls in Illinois close at 7 p.m.  We are asking all IBEW members to please vote and to get your friends and family to vote for the candidates that will support Illinois working families.

October 30, 2014 We normally don’t share emails we receive from other organizations, but after reading this one we thought it was important to share it with you. It deals with a topic that could affect all working families in Illinois.    If you haven’t voted or are still undecided please seriously consider the information we are sharing with you.

October 29, 2014-AT&T announced that eligible IBEW members employed by the company will receive a Success Sharing Plan (SSP) payout of $177. In 2014, current eligible IBEW- AT&T employees do not receive the dividend portion of the SSP. During 2013 bargaining it was negotiated that the 2014 dividend portion would be paid to eligible retirees to offset costs associated with their retiree healthcare benefits. A payment of $300 was made to eligible retirees in January of this year. Information and Success Sharing payout eligibility can be found on page 153 of our 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement with AT&T.
