    Heat-Related Illnesses Can be Fatal; Would You Know What to Do?
    06/29/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    With the extreme heat and humidity hitting our area we remind all IBEW Local 21 Union members to take proper precautions while working outside, going to and from work, and while enjoying your time at home. We also ask that you check on your co-workers, family, friends, neighbors and all others who may be at risk. All members should review safety documentation given to them by their employers. Supplemental information on working in hot weather can be found on OSHA’s website. Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die. These illnesses and deaths are preventable. Remember water, rest, shade.

    AT&T Announces SIPP Offers
    06/15/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    Friday, June 15, 2018 (11:00 a.m. CST) – Today AT&T officials announced the company is going to surplus four employees in Illinois and offer a General SIPP to employees working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The announcement will affect employees represented IBEW21. Prior to the announcement, AT&T contemplated making deep cuts in the TFS, U-Verse and Central Office organizations. With the Time Warner merger being approved your Union leadership saw an opportunity to lessen the impact of the pending announcement and entered into both formal and informal conversations regarding possible scenarios and their effects. As a result hundreds of jobs were taken off of the chopping block. We are continuing to work to protect as many jobs for as long as we can in the rapidly changing industry in which we work.

    AT&T Wage Increases and Contracts
    06/07/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    On Sunday, June 24, 2018 wage increases for our members working at AT&T go into effect.  Since the signing of the contract members have asked, “Where are the AT&T contract books?” This has been answered numerous times at union meetings, in Frontline and by your Officers, Chief Stewards and Business Representatives. The contract has not been printed as required by AT&T because in the final proof your Union Representatives found errors made by AT&T and the company still needs to correct them. Some of the errors are: missing commas, misspellings, corporate name changes, and other grammatical errors. It is important to understand AT&T's errors do not affect the substance of the contract. The contract is in full effect. We have a binding collective bargaining agreement.
