    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    IBEW Local Union 21 mourns the loss of our Brother, Quntrell Walls who worked as a Premises Technician at AT&T.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and our members. Visitation- Saturday, October 24, 2020 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Funeral- 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church 4344 W Madison St., Chicago.


    How you vote is a personal decision, but the IBEW has carefully reviewed both candidates’ records, and decided to endorse Joe Biden. He is a man of decency and good character who knows the challenges faced by working families. Joe listens to, and is shaped by, the counsel of others, like IBEW International President Lonnie R. Stephenson.


    We are saddened to announce the death of Brother Quntrell Walls. With his sudden passing we don’t have information on his arrangements.  Our Brother worked as a Premises Technician at AT&T.  As reported in the Chicago Sun-Times his life was taken by yet another senseless act of gun violence in Chicago. If anyone has any information regarding his death they should contact Chicago Area Four Detectives. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family, his friends and our members. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them.


    IBEW 21 members have strength in numbers  we must use our strength to win the good pay, retirement security, safe work environments, broad access to quality education for our children and much more. By mobilizing through our get-out-the-vote effort, IBEW 21 members can elect candidates who support and will enact a working families’ agenda so we all can move forward together.


    Out of an abundance of caution all October Union Meetings have been canceled. WEAR A MASK! WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! WASH YOUR HANDS! STAY SAFE! IBEW Local Union 21 is working to keep our members safe and informed.

    As Americans we often say our voices don’t count and that those in government don’t represent our interests. Today you have the opportunity to make a difference in how many of your tax dollars will be returned to your community. You have the ability to shape how many voices your State will have to represent you on issues that are important to you. All Americans regardless if they are Republicans, Democrats or Independents have the right to have their voices heard by being counted in the 2020 Census. Go to my2020census.gov and take part in the Census.
