IBEW Local Union 21 News

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.

June 16, 2020 - AT&T announced today they intend to slash 176 Customer Systems Technician (CST) jobs in Illinois and Northwest Indiana affecting employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 21 (IBEW 21).  The job losses are due to the continual evolution of AT&T’s business model. The first phase is the announcement of an enhanced voluntary separation package which is being offered to eligible IBEW employees in Title Groups 2 which includes AFO, Business Services and Construction. The SIPP amount will be $80,500 that is an increase of $50,000. The new amount is almost one year’s salary. All Voluntary SIPP applications must be received by noon on June 30, 2020.

Sisters and Brothers we ask that you take a few minutes to watch this video from IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson.  He addresses the crises we are facing both from Covid-19 and the Plague of Racism. Lonnie thanks all IBEW members for our hard work dedication as we move forward and heal.   We all are being tested. We all must come together as one. We all must speak out against all forms of inequality. Our strength is in our unity.


While life has been put on hold for many of us your IBEW 21 Officers, Staff and Executive Board would like to congratulate all of our IBEW 21 graduates and their parents. The Scholarship Committee met and we congratulate our 2020 Scholarship Winners: Margaret Collum, Mary Collum, Sara Engel, Erin Keeny, Jasmine Nickerson, Ethan Reattoir, Audrey Trevino. We are proud of all of you.

The Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 21 remember those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we have today. We also take this time to thank our IBEW members who have served, are currently serving, and those with family members who are in our military, especially those from our IBEW 21 family. We hope you all have a safe Memorial Day. If you are a veteran we encourage you to take advantage of the resources available from the AFL-CIO Union Veterans Council. They bring working-class veterans together to speak out on the issues that impact veterans the most, especially the need for a strong, fully funded and staffed VA. The Union Veterans Council fights every day for those who have fought for us.

ALL MAY 2020 MEETINGS CANCELED Due to the Covid-19 Stay at Home Orders all IBEW 21 May Union Meetings have been canceled. WORK SAFE! SOCIAL DISTANCE! WASH YOUR HANDS! WEAR A MASK! STAY SAFE!
