    Hundreds of IBEW Jobs Saved!
    03/14/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    As a result of many discussions that occurred between our IBEW leadership and AT&T all involuntary force reductions were pulled down. Hundreds of jobs in many different departments would have been lost if these conversations didn’t occur. IBEW workforce reductions across all departments in the second quarter of 2019 will occur with only volunteers accepting separation packages. The results of everyone’s efforts have paid off. While no one can guarantee what may happen in the future, today we all can breathe a sigh of relief.

    AT&T Contemplates Layoff
    03/06/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    AT&T notified IBEW Local Union 21 that they are contemplating a Premises Technician Layoff.  A layoff has not been announced. Discussions are taking place to reduce the possibility of a layoff and determine if AT&T will reduce the number of contractors performing DirecTV work and if that reduction will eliminate or reduce the number of Premises Technicians that could be affected by AT&T’s contemplated layoff. We must stress a layoff has not yet been announced and that AT&T may not eliminate all contractors. IBEW Local 21 representatives and management are discussing alternatives to avoid AT&T’s contemplated layoff. We realize this will cause anxiety but our focus right now is to minimize or eliminate the contemplated layoff of Premises Technicians.

    Helping Our Injured Brother
    02/08/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, our Brother Thomas Marin, an AT&T Premises Technician from Alsip, Illinois was in a very serious accident involving a semi-truck, while working on detail in North Dakota. He sustained very serious injuries and is in stable condition.  We know he will have a long road to recovery. During these trying times IBEW 21 members, managers and friends are being asked to help. In a coordinated effort to help, IBEW Local 21 is accepting donations to assist Tom and his family during his recovery. Voluntary donations can be made through the IBEW 21 Member Assistance Fund. It is on the same webpage we use for our 21 Days of Giving Drives.

    Battery Energy Storage Systems
    02/05/19 - IBEW Local 100
    Brothers and Sisters, We currently have several Solar projects with Energy Storage PLA's in place and waiting for funding. It is critical that we make sure these jobs are performed by our Inside Wiremen contractors (C-10) and not by a purely solar company (C-46).  If we lose these jobs to the C-46 contractors, anyone can do them and that means laborers stealing our work again.
