    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    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.


    Taxes and responses to the OEMC bargaining survey are due on April 18th.  It is your duty to get them both done.  But unlike taxes, you can’t file for an extension to complete the survey! The tax deadline was moved to April 18, 2022 because of the observance of Emancipation Day.


    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 winners scholarships of $1,000 each. Essay Topic Select two of the following activists: Mary Harris Jones, A. Phillip Randolph, Cesar Chavez, Beatrice Lumpkin, and Dolores Huerta. Describe their role in the labor movement during their era and how their contributions are influencing today’s labor movement. Applications must be received by Friday, June 3, 2022.


    April 7, 2022 Don't forget to do your part at the OEMC and take the OEMC Bargaining survey. IBEW Local Union 21 has posted the 2022 City of Chicago OEMC Bargaining survey on our website. It is designed to be completed by all IBEW 21 members currently working at the City of Chicago OEMC.

    We are deeply saddened and mourn the loss of our Friend and Brother David Webster, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 Business Representative. David was a great friend to all he met, he lit up any room with his jovial energy. If there was a labor dispute of any kind, Dave was there on the front lines. He educated many IBEW 21 members on the ins and outs of organizing and how they could build solidarity in their work places. No struggle was too big, no corporation was too large. If a worker was being mistreated, Dave was up for the fight. As the lead organizer for Local 21, he took on Fortune 500 Companies fighting for worker’s rights and won. Our Brother was the voice of workers who had no voice in their workplaces. He led workers to the doorsteps of corporate millionaires so they could air their grievances.


    It is Fat Tuesday, put down that Paczki, clean off your fingers and take the AT&T bargaining survey.


    On your lunch break, take the AT&T Bargaining Survey.  Your responses bring your voice to the bargaining table. IBEW Local Union 21 has posted the 2022 AT&T Bargaining survey on our website. It is designed to be completed by all IBEW 21 members currently working at AT&T.


    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.
