    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - Today, AT&T announced a surplus affecting employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21).

    ALL September 2020 MEETINGS CANCELED Out of an abundance of caution all September Union Meetings have been canceled. WEAR A MASK! WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! WASH YOUR HANDS! STAY SAFE! IBEW Local Union 21 is doing all we can to keep our members safe.

    We are saddened to learn of the passing of Larry Neimic.  Brother Neimic represented IBEW members as a Chief Steward and Business Representative of forrmer IBEW Local 165. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Brother’s family and friends. A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date. Donations in Larry’s name can be sent to www.tidewellhospice.

    Summary of terms of City of Chicago’s FINAL CONTRACT OFFER to Unit II August 11, 2020 The Unit II bargaining committee is comprised of IBEW Local 21 and SEIU Local 73 members.  By majority vote, the combined bargaining committee recommends acceptance of the City’s Final Contract Offer to the Unions.

    We are saddened and mourn the passing of our Brother Ollie Cameron who worked for AT&T at 10 S. Canal.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family, friends and coworkers. A memorial service for our Brother will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at Grace Central Church, 10216 Kitchner St, Westchester, IL 60154.

    Today AT&T announced they are seeking a voluntary reduction in the number of Premises Technicians they employ.  The company is offering an additional $5,000 to the layoff allowance as an incentive for Premises Technicians in select locations to leave the company. While jobs cuts are always a difficult pill to swallow the good news is that all of the employees who are leaving AT&T are doing it on their own terms. These members saved the jobs of hundreds of their Sisters and Brothers who were not ready to be left jobless. They also allowed other employees to move into new positions. While no one can guarantee what may happen in the future, today we can once again breathe a sigh of relief and then lace up our boots and continue to address the many questions and concerns created by today’s announcement.

    In these difficult times for many we would like to pass on information for IBEW 21 members and their families about an opportunity to apply for a position with one of our employers. The Lake County Indiana 911 Emergency Dispatch Center is hiring.  If you have you ever considered a career in public safety the Center is hiring Public Safety Dispatchers. Apply here:

    WATER-REST-SHADE Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die. Our members and others in our industry who are working hard to perform their jobs do fall victim to heat related injuries. These illnesses and deaths are preventable. With dangerous heat and humidity we are experiencing we remind all members to WORK SAFE.

    Out of an abundance of caution all July Union Meetings have been canceled. WEAR A MASK! - WORK SAFE! - SOCIAL DISTANCE! - WASH YOUR HANDS! - STAY SAFE!

    June 28, 2020 - This is just a reminder all Enhanced General SIPP applications for eligible AT&T employees must be received by noon Tuesday June 30, 2020. The $80,500 SIPP amount is an incentive to allow employees who have been considering leaving the company to retiree and save the position of other employees who are not ready to leave their employment with AT&T.
