BAC Administrative District Council 1 of Illinois

Robert E. Shepherd was the President of the Ceramic Tile Layers Local 67 and later selected to be the Vice President of the International Union of Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers.

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. Industrial Drive, Elmhurst, Illinois.

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
