September 12, 2014- The latest issue of Frontline is still on the press but you can read it before it gets to your mailbox.   This issue contains information on the IBEW 21 Kunas Fundraiser to benefit the family of IBEW 21 member Terry Quant. Read Frontline now by clicking the headline above.


September 11, 2014- A special message from IBEW International President Ed Hill… IBEW 21 members have strength in numbers. We must use our strength to win good pay, retirement security, safe work environments, industry regulations, public sector bargaining rights, quality education for our children and much more.

The Officers, Executive Board, and staff of IBEW Local 21 would like to wish all of our members and retirees a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable Labor Day weekend. Enjoy your holiday you earned it! If you are looking for something to do this weekend there are many Labor Day Events scheduled. Click the headline above for more information.


The Officers of IBEW Local 21 were dared to help find a cure for ALS by participating in the Ice Bucket challenge. Mindful of their obligation to make a difference in the communities where they live and work they accepted the challenge and are also making donations to fight ALS.In turn, they challenged the IBEW 21 Executive Board, Staff, Renew Group, and members to also help in finding a cure for ALS. If you accept the challenge please post your videos on our Facebook page IBEW Twenty One and make a donation at als.net.


IBEW Local 21 created the Michael A. Kunas Memorial Fund to honor the memory of our brother and Business Representative. The Fund hosts fundraising events to assist IBEW 21 members in need. Join us on October 5th at our Golf Outing,Dinner,and 50/50 Raffle at Glenwoodie Golf Course. For more details and sponsorship information please click the headline above.


July 30, 2014- You can still help!  The IBEW 21 Days of Giving School Supply Drive ends this Saturday, August 2nd.  If you were planning on donating or may have forgotten you still have time to bring in your donations.  Your contributions will benefit members in need, My Joyful Heart, and the Vermilion County Salvation Army. We are asking all stewards to contact your Chief Steward or Business Representative and make arrangements with them to get the donations collected in your area into the Union Hall as soon as possible. Read more by clicking the headline above.


The IBEW 21 Days of Giving Back to School Supply Drive kicked off last week.  As many of you should already know some of our Sisters and Brothers across our jurisdiction recently lost their jobs because of corporate downsizing. We also have members who have serious medical issues or are experiencing economic setbacks that now make it difficult to provide for their families as they were able to in the past. We need to help these Sisters and Brothers. If you are a member or know of a member who was recently laid off or who is experiencing a serious economic hardship and would directly benefit from the back to school donations please contact Bob Przybylinski, Jacquie Fields or Dave Webster in the IBEW Local 21 Union Hall.


July 13, 2014 The IBEW 21 Days of Giving Back to School Drive has started and will run through August 2nd.The children from the organizations we are supporting need: Pencils, Pens, Paper, Folders, Notebooks, Crayons, Markers, Erasers, Pencil Cases, Glue Sticks, Scissors, Rulers, Kleenex, Colored Pencils, Construction Paper, Dictionaries, Calculators, Assignment Notebooks, Hand Sanitizer, Supply Boxes, Lunch Boxes, Back Packs. IBEW 21 volunteers are needed at Mercy Home’s Picnic on Saturday July 19, 2014. There are two shifts 10am—12:30pm and/or 12:30pm—3:30pm.


July 10, 2014- IBEW 21 volunteers are needed at Mercy Home’s Picnic on Saturday July 19, 2014, 1140 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL 60607.

July 8, 2014- Now that our kid’s summer break is almost half over it means we must start planning for their return to school. Did you know there are over 660,000 children living in poverty in the areas where we live and work? Many children return to school without the basic necessities to get them through their day. To help them succeed we are holding our first ever IBEW 21 Days of Giving “Back to School Supply Drive.” The school supply drive will take place from July 13 - August 2, 2014. We are asking every IBEW 21 member to donate a minimum of $1 and school supplies. Learn more by clicking the headline above.
