    IBEW Local Union 21 News

    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.

    The IBEW Local Union 21 Scholarship deadline is 4:30 pm, Friday, May 7, 2021.  Scholarships are available to all IBEW Local Union 21 members and their immediate family. Our Local is awarding up to six winners scholarships of $1000 each.  Information and an application can be found here.

    April 27, 2021 2:15 PM We are in the process of moving to our new Union Hall, as of this afternoon our phone and internet services have been turned off in Downers Grove.  You will not be able to call or fax us.  If you need to reach the Union Hall please contact your Chief Steward or Business Representative and they will assist you.

    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

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.
