BAC Administrative District Council 1 of Illinois

On July 1, 2020 Mike Lowery retired as Secretary-Treasurer of the District Council.

To all members:

As you are all aware our country has been dealing with the Coronavirus for the past few months.

Message from President Allen :

Mike Lowery, Secretary-Treasurer of the ADC, has announced to me his desire to retire at the end of June 2020.

Dear Members:

June 1, 2020 starts another year for wage and benefit improvements for the BAC Membership.

This year we negotiated three agreements, Brick, Marble, and Terrazzo.

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.
- Barack Obama
