IBEW Local Union 21 News

The IBEW 21 Days of Giving Back to School Supply Drive kicked off this week.  It is our goal to collect 500 backpacks filled with school supplies.  We will be helping children from Bethany Home in Rock Island, Mercy Home in Chicago, Crittenton Centers in Peoria and My Joyful Heart in Mokena.  Collectively, they have over 1000 children in need. Please bring your donations to your work location or make your donations through our IBEW 21 webpage. Please donate today.

IBEW 21 mourns the loss of Brother Dennis D. Bathon Jr, Customer Systems Technician, Bellwood, IL. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Arrangements as follows, Visitation: Thursday, July 28, 2016, 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Modell Funeral Home - 7710 South Cass Avenue,Darien, IL.

July 19, 2016 – Downers Grove, IL – Historic tentative agreements have been reached between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 and AT&T for their employees working at recently acquired DIRECTV. Earlier this year over 3000, AT&T DIRECTV employees joined the IBEW through a mutually agreed to card check neutrality process to bargain a first contract. These new national agreements protect employees who perform work in call centers and technicians who install satellite services. The contracts put into place wage progression scales, a comprehensive health care benefit package, a 401K plan with company matching, and a pension plan. The agreements also offer layoff protections and a very solid grievance and arbitration process.

The time of the Unit 1 Union meeting at Gideon Welles in Chicago tomorrow is 7:00 p.m. The bulletin board posting stated 6:00 p.m.  The change is because that meeting was originally scheduled to be at IBEW 134’s hall. We will be holding our Back to School Supply Drive from July 25th – August 14th. Since we sent out our reminder yesterday about the Sox game we have seen a surge in ticket sales. Tickets are still available for the August 28th game.

Union meetings start this week. Just a reminder that the Unit 1 meeting will be at Gideon Welles on July 14th.  Meetings will no longer be held at Local 134’s hall because they sold their building. Sox Tickets tickets are still available for the August 28th Sox game. Order yours today. IBEW members can purchase discounted tickets for admission to Six Flags Great America for this weekend 7/16, 7/17 and also on 7/30 & 7/31.

Join your IBEW 21 Brothers & Sisters and their families on Sunday, August 28th Game Time 1:10pm** White Sox vs. Mariners Special Ticket Pricing for Union Members! $5 - Upper Box Seats / $25 - Lower Box* $10 – Parking Pass / $7.50 Hot Dog Value Meal

June 27, 2016 - Lake County, Indiana Emergency Call Dispatchers who voted to join the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21) in June 2015 have reached a historic first contract with Lake County representatives.

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.
