Bring Your Family to the Southeast Side Labor Day Parade

Route: 108th & Cottage Grove. Marching to 113th

Attention BAC members, mark your calendars for our annual BAC ADC1 Barbecue. 

Come on out for a night of great food, fun,  prizes and camaraderie! 

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Ed Tiedt, long time Business Agent with the Tuckpointers, Cleaners, and Caulkers Local 21.

As many of you may know, the ADC 1 entrance of pavers is a special place members can memorialize family members that also belonged to the BAC.

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.

I want to thank you, your families, and friends for all the support to get the Workers’ Rights Amendment passed. We phone banked, we knocked doors and had kitchen table conversations on how important this was for the labor movement.
