The Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 21 would like to wish all of our members a Happy and Safe Labor Day.
Working people are the backbone of our nation and need to be recognized as such, both in word and deed. Too often, those working every day for a better life are forced to take a back seat to corporate interests which care only about their own bottom line.
As we celebrate Labor Day let us remember the Labor movement has fought to gain benefits many workers enjoy today.
Our Brother Chief Steward Mike Andel will be receiving the BrainUp Bravery Award at their 5K Run/Walk. It is often said patients fight a battle with cancer. In Mike’s case, cancer is waging a war to defeat our Brother who is refusing to back down. While undergoing treatments since last year Mike has shown incredible courage and commitment to his family and the Sisters and Brothers of IBEW Local Union 21 who he represents. He is an incredible father, husband and Union representative. While many have been assisting our Brother in his recovery, Mike is helping others defeat cancer by joining with BrainUp in their fight to find a cure. His commitment to others is unwavering.

As our children prepare to start another school year, IBEW Local Union 21 is holding our annual Back to School Supply Drive. We are collecting supplies and donations for children assisted by Mercy Home, My Joyful Heart, Crittenton Centers and Bethany Home.
IBEW Local Union 21 believes in making a difference in the communities where we live and work. We are asking you join us in our efforts by making a donation to our Back to School Supply Drive. Ideally we would like every student to begin the year with the supplies needed to have a successful school year. Building strong communities starts by making sure the children living in those communities have the education needed to be successful in life.
Just a few reminders about upcoming IBEW 21 events.
