Union - Meetings – Cards – Calendars – Pins - Scholarships

As we start 2013, we all must understand to be successful this year we all will need to stand together in solidarity to fight back against those who will attempt to destroy us.  It will be our unity that will make the difference.  

One of the best ways to build unity is by attending a monthly union meeting. Information on all our union meetings is available on our Union Hotline 630-415-2711, Union Bulletin Boards and our website  You can view all the Unit meetings for the first quarter of 2013 by clicking here.

Union Cards and Calendars

We experienced a delay in getting your 2013 Union Cards and Calendars.  They have arrived and we are working on mailing them out to you.  We would like to thank Michael Goldberg from Goldberg, Weisman, & Cairo for their assistance in this huge undertaking. You can find out more about Goldberg, Wesiman & Cairo by clicking here.

Until you receive you 2013 Union card if you are carded on a job you can present your 2012 card to the person who carded you and if they feel the need to check your status they can call our Union hall. 

Union Pins

You Chief Stewards and Business Representatives will be out to your locations to distribute your 2013 union pins.  It will take them sometime to make it to every location.  When you receive yours wear it proudly.  It is one of the simplest ways to display your solidary to the bosses.
