BAC Administrative District Council 1 of Illinois

Click below to see the July update to our members from President Mike Volpentesta.

The Local 74 Executive Committee appointed Dan Kuczkowski to take over as the new President of Local 74. Dan started as a Bricklayer apprentice in 1995 with Local 74.

The ADC would also like to congratulate Dave Naprstek, President of Local 74, on his retirement.

We are happy to announce that we have resumed in person Union meetings!  All meetings will be held at the union hall at 660 N.

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
