Developer Strada Investment Group LLC has secured $100 million in funding for a massive six-building project near Mid-Market and Hayes Valley. Straddling 2 acres and nearly the full block at 12th and Market Streets, the site will include about 480 market-rate rental units and 100 affordable units, a new hall for UA Local 38 Plumbers & Pipefitters and a gut renovation of the Civic Center hotel — plus 23,000 square feet of open space to boot.

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.
