IBEW Local Union 21 News

This update contains more information on changes made to articles, appendixes, memorandums and letters to the IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV  four-year tentative agreement covering employees working for the company in DIRECTV call centers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your IBEW representative. Your IBEW bargaining team approves of the proposed agreement and is recommending that you vote YES on the ballot that has been sent to your home address on file.


On Friday, May 10, 2019 the IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract covering employees working for the company in DIRECTV call centers. The new tentative agreement must be voted on and accepted by the members of the IBEW. The IBEW SCT-3 will present the contract to its members over the next few weeks through a series of meetings and other communications. After reviewing the new contract we feel our members will agree with the officers and delegates of the IBEW SCT-3 and vote to accept the tentative agreement. The highlights are as follows:


Friday, May 10, 2019 11:30pm (CDT) - The IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract covering approximately 1,650 employees working for the company nationwide in DIRECTV call centers in Boise, ID, Chicago, IL, and Missoula, MT.  The new tentative agreement must be voted on and accepted by the members of the IBEW.


May   8, 2019 – The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21(IBEW 21) and the Lake County, Indiana 911 Dispatch Center agreed to “accelerated bargaining” to renegotiate their collective bargaining agreement for Dispatch center employees that is set to expire on July 31, 2019. Local 21 and Lake County agreed to bargain in good faith, in an attempt to reach an agreement for Dispatchers at Lake County Emergency Center during these “accelerated” negotiations. There are several issues that require discussion and immediate attention to achieve the best possible agreement for the Emergency Center and IBEW 21 members.


May 5, 2019 – The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers IBEW System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) and AT&T/DirecTV have agreed to begin “early bargaining" to renegotiate their collective bargaining agreement for “DirecTV” call center employees that is set to expire on August 24, 2019.


Now that the deadline to file your taxes has passed another deadline is quickly approaching and your kids could be costing you an opportunity to put money back in your pocket.  The deadline to apply for an IBEW Local Union 21 scholarship is Friday, May 3rd. Our Local union is proud to offer, on an annual basis, the IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship Program, available to all IBEW Local Union 21 members and their immediate family. Each year, our Local awards up to ten winners scholarships of $1000 each.


IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of our Sister Joyce Rodriguez who worked for AT&T in Chicago. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and coworkers.


IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of our Brother Cecil Knight, who worked at AT&T, in the Chicago Cermak Garage. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.


As a result of many discussions that occurred between our IBEW leadership and AT&T all involuntary force reductions were pulled down. Hundreds of jobs in many different departments would have been lost if these conversations didn’t occur. IBEW workforce reductions across all departments in the second quarter of 2019 will occur with only volunteers accepting separation packages. The results of everyone’s efforts have paid off. While no one can guarantee what may happen in the future, today we all can breathe a sigh of relief.


IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of our Brother Mark Skertich, who worked at AT&T, in the Crown Point Garage. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and coworkers. Visitation Tuesday, March 12, 2019 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm Elmwood Chapel 11300 W. 97th Lane St.
