    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    ALL June 2020 MEETINGS ARE CANCELED Due to Covid-19. WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! WEAR A MASK! STAY SAFE!


    While life has been put on hold for many of us your IBEW 21 Officers, Staff and Executive Board would like to congratulate all of our IBEW 21 graduates and their parents. The Scholarship Committee met and we congratulate our 2020 Scholarship Winners: Margaret Collum, Mary Collum, Sara Engel, Erin Keeny, Jasmine Nickerson, Ethan Reattoir, Audrey Trevino. We are proud of all of you.


    The Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 21 remember those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we have today. We also take this time to thank our IBEW members who have served, are currently serving, and those with family members who are in our military, especially those from our IBEW 21 family. We hope you all have a safe Memorial Day. If you are a veteran we encourage you to take advantage of the resources available from the AFL-CIO Union Veterans Council. They bring working-class veterans together to speak out on the issues that impact veterans the most, especially the need for a strong, fully funded and staffed VA. The Union Veterans Council fights every day for those who have fought for us.


    ALL MAY 2020 MEETINGS CANCELED Due to the Covid-19 Stay at Home Orders all IBEW 21 May Union Meetings have been canceled. WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! WASH YOUR HANDS! WEAR A MASK! STAY SAFE!


    We are deeply saddened and mourn the passing of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 21 Union Steward, our Brother Jose Martinez.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family, his friends and our members he represented at the AT&T Elgin garage. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them.


    IBEW Local 21 mourns the passing of our Brother Russell Modjeski.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family, his friends and all of our members at the City of Chicago 911 OEMC.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them all.


    After courageously battling his illness, we are deeply saddened and mourn the loss of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 Chief Steward, our Brother Michael Andel. After hearing of our Brother’s passing, Local 21 President - Business Manager Paul Wright said, “Mike was a friend and a loyal, trusted, and passionate fighter for all of us in Local 21. He became a Union Steward at the age of 23 and I was proud to appoint Mike as a Chief Steward. Mike rose to the occasion and always carried that same passion and energy while doing his job despite his personal battle right on through the last few weeks of his life.” Our thoughts and prayers are with our Brother's family, friends and coworkers. A celebration of Mike’s life will be held at a later date


    Due to the Covid-19 Stay at Home Orders all IBEW 21 April Union meetings have been canceled. WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! STAY SAFE!


    March 30, 2020 11:00 AM - Representatives of IBEW Local 21 were notified that because of the unpredicted number of absences due to the effects of COVID-19, FMLA leaves and other reasons the City cannot grant PCOs vacations. This decision will affect PCOs with the following furloughs: Segment 4B, Full 5, and Segment 5A. Representatives from the City will contact employees if the cancelations need to go beyond 5A. It is anticipated that staffing numbers will continue to decrease and the City stated that they must take this measure to continue to provide essential 911 services to the residents of Chicago. If staffing numbers improve the City stated that they will reconsider their decision. Remember that all of us who count on you appreciate all of your hard work during this crisis.


    March 30, 2020 10:15 AM Over the past two weeks, your IBEW Local Union 21 Representatives have been having constant conversations with Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office over the effects of COVID-19 with respect to worker safety and benefits enhancements. The Mayor, her staff and IBEW Local 21 Officials appreciate and recognize the essential, hard work performed by PCOs and ACO Police Communications Operators I/II and Aviation Communications Operators in keeping the public safe. We are proud of all of you. The temporary City of Chicago COVID-19 benefit enhancements include additional paid COVID-19 sick-leave and leave of absence (LOA) for a parent or guardian having to attend to an underage child effected by school closures.
