    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    Congratulations to our 2022 IBEW 21 Scholars Emma Hahn, D'Angelo Manzo, Dominic Stancato and Stella Weisfus.

    IBEW Local Union 21 and SEIU opened Unit 2 contract negotiations with the City of Chicago. We passed a series of Economic and Non-Economic proposals that reflect your sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic and your hard-work as Essential Public Safety Workers who are also dealing with soaring cost of living expenses. The City did not pass any proposals and offered no responses to the offers we laid on the table. Our strength lies in our Unity. United We Bargain, Divide We Beg!

    IBEW SCT-3 - AT&T Contract Extended-Bargaining Update #2 Friday, June 24, 2022 - 3:00pm (CDT) - The IBEW SCT-3 Council and AT&T have agreed to extend their current collective bargaining agreement while talks to reach a new contract continue. The agreement extends the current collective bargaining agreement through 11:59 PM on July 6, 2022. All IBEW members need to be ready to act. All Union Stewards should make sure to build their contact lists so information can be spread quickly to those in their work groups.

    Don't forget to do your part at Comcast and take the Comcast Bargaining survey. It is designed to be completed by all current IBEW 21 members working at Comcast. We are asking all Local 21 Comcast members to take the time to fill out the survey completely.

    With the extreme heat and humidity hitting our area, we remind all IBEW Local 21 Union members to take proper precautions while working outside, going to and from work, and while enjoying your time at home. We also ask that you check on your co-workers, family, friends, neighbors and all others who may be at risk. Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die. Our members and others in our industry who are working hard to do their jobs do fall victim to heat-related injuries. These illnesses and deaths are preventable. All IBEW Local Union 21 members should review safety documentation given to them by their employers. Supplemental information on working in hot weather can be found on OSHA’s website

    AT&T presented their first benefits proposal, which clearly indicated they didn’t understand the modern day economic pressures their employees face. The IBEW bargaining team made it clear that our Union seeks to push past the typical bargaining table gamesmanship and looks forward to the company preparing more realistic proposals. As we have all experienced there have been dramatic changes in the world, ones our members have never faced. IBEW SCT-3 Chairman Paul Wright said, “IBEW members have faced unprecedented challenges in recent years; COVID, changing employee expectations related to the great resignation, and now world events that are affecting the US economy. As the self-proclaimed Big Business Roundtable leader, AT&T must be willing to step up and meet these challenges. It is our goal to address these new realities while also preserving good-paying middle class jobs for our membership.”

    The IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship deadline is 4:30 P.M, Friday, June 3, 2022.  Scholarships are available to all IBEW Local Union 21 members and their immediate family. Our Local is awarding $1,000 scholarships.

    IBEW Local Union 21 has posted the 2022 Comcast Bargaining survey on our website. It is designed to be completed by all current IBEW 21 members working at Comcast. We are asking all Local 21 Comcast members to take the time to fill out the survey completely. Your input is valuable as we develop proposals before we enter into negotiations with Comcast for our contract that expires on September 30, 2022. Deadline to participate is June 17, 2022.

    We are deeply saddened and mourn the loss of our Friend and Brother Tim Strutz, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 Executive Board Member. Tim was a very caring person and friend to many.  Brother Strutz was a great unionist who served as a Steward since 2004 and as our Unit 6 Executive Board Member since 2012. He was a strong yet calm and instrumental voice who played a pivotal role in the discussions regarding the purchase of our Union Hall in 2021. A purchase which will benefit future generations of IBEW 21 members. Tim’s dedication, dry sense of humor and good spirit and personality will be truly missed. Memorial Gathering Saturday, May 14, 2022, 4:00PM - 6:00PM, Butler Funeral Home, 900 S. 6th St. Springfield, IL 62703.

    We ask all of you to take time today and every day to remember and honor our IBEW Local Union 21 members working at the Lake County 911 Center and the City of Chicago Office of Emergency Management 911 Centers (OEMC).  They are there answering the call when we need them the most.  IBEW 21 is proud to say their commitment to assisting us in times of need keeps us all safe. We thank them for their dedication and hard-work.

    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.

    President Biden on the Importance of Unions

    President Biden talks about the importance of unions and how they build the middle class.
    He supports the right of collective bargaining and the right to join a union.
