    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    IBEW Local Union 21 is saddened to announce the passing of our Sister Gina Marie Kurelic who worked at the City of Chicago OEMC 911 Center.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Gina’s family, friends, co-workers and all of our members.

    International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 members (IBEW21) working for JULIE have voted to accept their tentative agreement. We would like to congratulate our Sisters and Brothers on their new contract.

    JULIE Contract Changes - Meetings and In-Person Voting September 23, 2022 - Earlier this week, IBEW Local Union 21 announced a new tentative agreement was reached with JULIE. This update contains information on contract presentation meetings, in-person voting, and changes made to the agreement.

    Tentative Agreement Reached at JULIE Wednesday, September 21, 2022 - IBEW Local Union 21 has reached a tentative agreement for our members working at the JULIE One-Call Center in Joliet.  Your IBEW 21 representatives are preparing information detailing the contractual changes, ratification and union meeting information for our members to review.

    Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - AT&T has declared a surplus of  four employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21).  While this is a very small surplus there is a potential that there will be limited opportunities for Voluntary Separation Packages (VSIPP) available to eligible employees who are not affected by the surplus. If you would like to save the job of someone whose job is at risk, your VSIPP application must be electronically submitted by 5 p.m. (CST) on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.

    JULIE negotiations have been advancing since talks started last week. Your IBEW 21 bargaining team has passed progressive proposals and reviewed management’s propositions and we presented our counter proposals. We all must stand in solidarity as talks continue this week to reach a new deal for our contract that expires on November 15, 2022. Please pass this information to members who may not be receiving IBEW 21 updates and advise them to visit to sign up for news and bargaining information.

    Illinois Worker’s Rights Amendment IBEW members across Illinois have the opportunity to change our Constitution by voting in favor of the Illinois Worker’s Rights Amendment.  The Workers’ Rights Amendment will be the first question on the November ballot.

    Bargaining with JULIE management is scheduled to begin this week. The IBEW 21 Bargaining team has reviewed the contract surveys our members submitted.  They have been prepping for bargaining and constructing proposals based on the survey results. We would like to thank all of our JULIE members who took time to become involved in negotiations by sharing their thoughts in the bargaining survey. It will take the solidarity of all our members to reach a fair contract. We all must stand in solidarity!

    Thursday, September 1, 2022 - The membership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 employed by AT&T have voted overwhelmingly to accept the tentative agreement that was reached on July 30, 2022.

    Illinois Worker’s Rights Amendment

    IBEW members across Illinois have the opportunity to change our Constitution by voting in favor of the Illinois Worker’s Rights Amendment.  The Workers’ Rights Amendment will be the first question on the November ballot. A “yes” vote means you are voting to enshrine workers’ rights into our Illinois Constitution so we can become the state with the most robust protections for workers in the country.

    The Workers’ Rights Amendment helps families by guaranteeing workers’ rights to organize and join together to collectively bargain for pay raises and safe working conditions.  It helps create good-paying jobs for all workers and also protects all Illinoisans, on the job and off. The Amendment ensures workers can speak out about dangerous situations that put all Illinoisans at risk without fear of retaliation from their employer.

    As we saw with previous state, federal and local elections, all IBEW members are affected by decisions made at all levels of government through laws, regulations, judicial decisions and appointments.  By voting yes in favor of the Worker’s Rights Amendment, we can take control of our futures and prevent out of touch politicians from ripping our rights away from us.

    John Oliver Talks Unions

    John Oliver talks about unions and corporate America's tactics to sack them
    by hiring union busting attorneys.  For workers who are already in a union these
    same scumbags teach managers how to destroy the labor relations process.
    At the end of the day it is union member’s solidarity that beats them back.
