We remind our membership things can change daily. We now must allow the process to play itself out. We realize members have questions, concerns and that rumors may start to circulate. Union updates will be released as necessary. We will only report on verified factual information.  The IBEW Local 21 staff is available and will help you during this difficult process.  Our staff directory can be found here.
