    As Americans we often say our voices don’t count and that those in government don’t represent our interests. Today you have the opportunity to make a difference in how many of your tax dollars will be returned to your community. You have the ability to shape how many voices your State will have to represent you on issues that are important to you. All Americans regardless if they are Republicans, Democrats or Independents have the right to have their voices heard by being counted in the 2020 Census. Go to my2020census.gov and take part in the Census.


    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.
