Take ACTION- U.S. Department of Labor Attacks IBEW Members
07/19/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
Brothers & Sisters, IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson is asking that all IBEW members take action to fight a proposal under consideration in the U.S Department of Labor (DOL). The proposal would establish a system in which a non-union contractor could recognize its own “apprenticeship program” that would not be subject to many of the same requirements that IBEW DOL recognized apprenticeships are. Currently the construction industry is temporarily exempted from the proposal. There is great concern that this exemption will not be part of the final regulation. Nonunion builders are eager to eliminate it, opening up the industry to apprenticeships with lower standards and greater risks. All IBEW members are being asked to submit comments to the DOL in support of the construction industry exemption.

AT&T Surplus Announcement- Limited Information
06/14/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
June 14, 2019 - 2:00 PM Earlier today AT&T announced a surplus affecting IBEW Local Union 21 (IBEW 21) members in Illinois and Northwest Indiana.  In that announcement management informed employees that SIPP packages were being distributed.  They did not offer up any other information or numbers or affected locations.  Many members are asking what is going on. Right now IBEW 21 Leadership is in discussions with the company on how to deal with the surplus and SIPP announcement. Because of these discussions numbers and locations are NOT being released at this time. We know this is frustrating but we do not feel it is fair to play with people’s emotions until we iron out issues concerning the surplus. Simply put things are changing rapidly; by the time you read this message things may have already changed.
