Message from President Allen

The Robert E. Shepherd Scholarship Fund was established in 1977 to honor one of the founding fathers and most influential members of the Ceramic Tile Layers Union, Local 67 of Illinois. Holding the highest position in the local union and named a vice-president of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, his vision was instrumental to the growth and success of the union movement. This scholarship continues his legacy of helping proud union families prosper.

On August 11, 2019 some of our members took a roundtrip motorcycle ride from the ADC headquarters to Sycamore, Illinois.  It was a beautiful day and a good time!

On March 24, 2019, the Officers and Tile Setter membership celebrated their 100-year affiliation with the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers!

International President James Boland was there to congratulate the hundreds in attendance. Posted are some of the pictures of the celebration.

On October 30, 2018, nominations for the office of President, Secretary-Treasurer, and three Executive Vice Presidents were presented to the ADC membership.

All current Officers were unanimously re-elected, with no opposition.

President Allen thanked the membership for their support and promised to continue working for better wages and benefits for each and every member.

On November 24, 2019 the ADC hosted our members who celebrated their 40th or 50th anniversary in the union and also our cherished retirees at a party held at Medinah Banquets.  It was a beautiful celebration for our members who have worked so hard at their craft.  Congratulations to everyone!
