With the extremely cold weather hitting our area we remind all members to work safely when helping those we serve. All members should review the safety documentation given to them by their employers.
OSHA provides many safety tips for workers who work in
extremely cold conditions.
Now that they’ve opened all their presents it’s time to put the kids to work on paying for all those gifts!

Shortly after the passage of the bill that provides massive tax cuts for corporations in the United States, AT&T announced its plans to distribute bonuses to its employees. On the surface that is great news for employees whose careers will continue with AT&T throughout 2018. Many are appreciative, as they should be.

Last week AT&T announced a surplus of 110 employees. Round One SIPP and VSIPP requests for any employee who wants to leave the payroll must be submitted by Wednesday, December 20, 2017, 5pm CST.
December 15, 2017 (12:45 PM CST)
The Officers and Staff of IBEW Local Union 21 are extremely frustrated and downright pissed off with the lack of respect, responsibility and social concern regarding the way AT&T management handles surplus situations. Departmental level vice presidents down to local first-line managers have been prematurely releasing information regarding surpluses.
Friday, December 15, 2017 (11:00 CST) - Today, AT&T announced a surplus affecting 110 employees in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The job cuts will affect employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21).
Voluntary Separation Packages (VSIPP) are available to eligible employees who are not affected by today’s surplus announcement You must electronically file for a VSIPP by 5 p.m. (CST) Wednesday, December 20, 2017.
As part of the current AT&T/IBEW contract, employees currently eligible to participate in the ASSP will transition to the ARSP effective January 1st, 2018. Balances in the ASSP (if any) will be transferred to one consolidated account under ARSP. There are a list of important dates and events to keep in mind!
