IBEW Local Union 21 News

WORK SAFE! 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!  Your kids can spend the rest of their break working on their submissions for an IBEW Local Union 21 or Chicago Federation of Labor scholarship. 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 eight winners scholarships of $1000 each.


December 21, 2017 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.


December 18, 2017 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!


As you head out to do your Holiday Shopping please consider picking up a toy or coat for a child whose holiday you can brighten.  The IBEW – 21 Days of Giving Toy & Coat Drive ends in seven days on Saturday, December 9th.  If you want to avoid the crowds donate online by clicking the link above.


It is “Giving Tuesday” and we are asking our members to give in a different way today.  It is time to volunteer for IBEW 21’s most popular community service activity the Mercy Home Aftercare Christmas Party. Mercy Home for Boys & Girls in Chicago needs IBEW 21 volunteers to help out at their Aftercare Christmas party on Thursday, December 21st from 5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. They need us to fill a number of roles such as setting up, guest check-in, assisting with kid’s activities, the toy table and helping Santa. If you are available to volunteer, please contact IBEW 21 Recording Secretary Bob Przybylinski at 630-960-4466 ext. 447 or 708-404-0417, bobp@ibew21.org.


The Officers, Executive Board, Business Representatives, Chief and Area Stewards and our Staff would like to wish all of our members a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. As we spend time with our families please consider helping a child who isn’t blessed with all that we are thankful for by donating to the IBEW – 21 Day of Giving Toy & Coat Drive by clicking the link above.
