This election effects both our private and public sector members. We have members in the public sector who are employed at the City of Chicago and Lake County Indiana 911 Centers, and who work in Vermilion and Peoria counties. They need all IBEW 21 members to protect their rights which are under attack. IBEW 21 union members and their families have the power to make change. Please consider the endorsed candidates.

While many have been assisting our Brother in his recovery, Mike is helping others defeat cancer by joining with BrainUp in their fight to find a cure. His commitment to others is unwavering.
