    Are You Ready – Do You Have a Plan?
    10/27/20 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    One of the most important elections of our lifetime is only a week away.  All IBEW 21 members need to exercise their right to vote.  Some IBEW 21 contracts have provisions allowing employees time to vote.  Plan your vote by checking your contract’s voting language.  You may be saying that the National Election in your State has already been decided. Don’t let that thought prevent you from voting. There are many down ballot races that can affect you and your family. IBEW 21 COPE Director Dennis McCafferty has said many times, “…down ballot politicians need to get their start somewhere, they use these entry positions, even as dog catcher as a springboard to get elected into higher positions. We must slam the door shut early on wannabees who are out to destroy your Union job that provides your wages, benefits and retirement that you and your family are counting on…”
