    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    It has been heartbreaking times for many of our IBEW 21 families. We pray for them, and all our IBEW 21 Sisters and Brothers who continue to deal with tragedy, heath issues and other struggles because of the challenges we endure as we continue to heal from the strains we are facing that began a little over a year ago. It has been one year since we lost our good friend, Chief Steward Michael Andel. He was a loyal, trusted, and passionate fighter for all of us in Local 21. As we reminisce about Mike today we also remember the lives of our Sisters and Brothers who were taken from us much too soon.


    IBEW Local Union 21 is saddened to announce the passing of our Brother Jason Walker who worked for AT&T.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Jason’s family, friends, co-workers and all of our members. A Go Fund Me page has been established in the hopes of offsetting the Surgical & Hospital bills as well as the Funeral costs incurred prior to Jason’s sudden passing

    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 “In the age of the Covid-19 pandemic, what new strategies should Unions consider implementing when organizing workers both internally and externally? Additionally, when organizing these groups of workers what considerations should be contemplated regarding gender and racial identities?” You must give your rationale for all of your decisions.


    Out of an abundance of caution all March Union Meetings have been canceled. WEAR A MASK! WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! STAY SAFE! IBEW Local Union 21 is doing all we can to keep our members safe and informed.


    IBEW Local Union 21 is saddened to announce the passing of our Brother Christopher Boykin who worked at Comcast in Carol Stream.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Christopher’s family, friends, co-workers and all of our members. Our Brother’s memorial page will be updated when information on his arrangements are made available.


    WORK SAFE! With the snow and extremely cold weather hitting our area we remind all members to work safely when helping those we serve. All members should review the safety documentation given to them by their employers.  Please check on your family, friends and neighbors to make sure they are safe and forward this information to others who may be at risk. We All Must Remember: No job is so important and no service is so urgent that we cannot take the time to perform our jobs safely.


    Out of an abundance of caution all February Union Meetings have been canceled. WEAR A MASK! WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! STAY SAFE! IBEW Local Union 21 is doing all we can to keep our members safe and informed.


    Over the past several months there have been many staffing level adjustments initiated by AT&T as well as the announcement of a welcomed infrastructure build.  This is resulting in the need for human resources to fill open positions with candidates internally and externally.
