October 16, 2014- The IBEW Local 21 Kunas Committee would like to thank all IBEW Local 21 members, retirees, our friends, sponsors and volunteers who helped make the Kunas Memorial Golf outing a success. It is because of you the Kunas Fund is able to assist IBEW Local 21 families who have experienced great tragedy or loss in their lives.

IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of Brother Brad Meier, Cable Splicing Technician - East Dundee, Illinois. Arrangements are as follows: Visitation: Friday, October 17, 2014 - 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Every election cycle it seems you hear “this is the most important election ever.” It’s true once again this year. Bruce Rauner has stated on numerous occasions that he will fight against workers and the unions that represent them if he is elected. If you are willing to make calls to your IBEW 21 Sisters and Brothers please contact IBEW 21 Political Education Director Dennis McCafferty at 630-960-4466 ext. 353 or email him dmac@ibew21.org.

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.
