BAC Administrative District Council 1 of Illinois

After recent retirements at the Executive level, we are pleased to announce our new ADC Executive Board and Executive Committee, pictured from left to right:

It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.
