    The IBEW Local 21 Union Election is complete; all of the ballots have been counted. Under the election rules, each office is decided by the candidate receiving the most votes for that specific office. IBEW Local Union 21 Officers and Executive Board Members will be installed in office at the first regular Local Union Executive Board meeting following their election to office. Unit Officers will be installed in office at the July Unit Meetings. Thank you Sisters and Brothers for participating and voting in this election! Congratulations to our elected Union Officers, Executive Board Members, Unit Officers and Delegates.

    Friday, June 18, 2020 - The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21) and Lake County, Indiana 911 Center representatives reached a tentative agreement on a new contract covering dispatchers working at the Lake County Indiana Emergency Call Center.


    IBEW Local Union 21 is saddened to announce the passing of our Sister Tonya Jackson who worked at the City of Chicago OEMC 911 Center.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Tonya’s family, friends, co-workers and all of our members. Our Sister was a loving mother and a kind and generous friend to many of our members and to those in the communities where she lived and worked.


    We have some good news to report today, our internet and phones are back up and working.  As expected we ran into some delays in coordinating the movement of all of our communications services.  Anyone who has worked on orders for types of moves like ours can understand some of the problems we experienced. We would like to thank all of our AT&T members who helped get us up and running over the past few days especially AT&T Member Tom Henzel and our Avaya members Thomas Concannon and Louis Shapiro.
