    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    On August 6, 1965 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law, calling the day “a triumph for freedom as huge as any victory that has ever been won on any battlefield” The law came seven months after Martin Luther King launched a Southern Christian Leadership Conference campaign with the aim of pressuring Congress to pass such legislation. There is nothing more fundamental in a democracy than a right to vote. At this moment, that right – and our democracy itself – is under attack. As IBEW members we must do our part to help pass these bills that protect the fundamental rights of all Americans. Honor Dr. King’s legacy by taking action today, by clicking the title link.


    The New IBEW Members at Collectivo Coffee need your help. On August 23, 2021 IBEW Locals 494 & 1220 won an election to represent over 300 employees at Collectivo Coffee. Company management filed objections to the election.  The objections were dismissed and these worker’s election results were certified on December 17th.


    Out of an abundance of caution due to the surge in Covid cases all January 2022 IBEW Local Union 21 meetings and Building Corporation Meetings are canceled.


    IBEW Local Union 21 is saddened to announce the passing of our Brother Ryan Wise who worked at AT&T.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan’s family, friends, co-workers and all of our members. Visitation December 29, 2021 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM Sheets Funeral Home 604 E. Commercial Ave. Lowell, IN, Funeral Service December 30, 2021 11:00 AM Sheets Funeral Home.


    The Work from Home Agreements for IBEW members working at AT&T have been extended through June 2022.  This extension applies to all IBEW members working under all IBEW – AT&T Contracts who have been identified as employees who are eligible to perform their job duties from home. The Company has the right to cancel the agreements at any time with a seven-day notice. Participation is at the discretion of management and is entirely voluntary on the behalf of employees. We remind all members to continue to work safe and to take all necessary precautions to limit the spread of Covid-19.


    AT&T is currently conducting a Dependent Reverification for all Active Employees with Dependents, other than a biological or adopted child, that have not been verified after 2018. If you have any type of dependent that is not a biological or adopted child, you will have to complete the reverification process by December 29, 2021. Failure to complete this Dependent Reverification process will result in your dependents being dropped from coverage effective March 1, 2022. AT&T’s failure to notify our Union in a timely manner coupled with AT&T’s delayed communications to employees have created a sense of urgency in this matter.
