In response to the Governor's order against gatherings of more than 10 and the stay at home order, the meeting scheduled for April 14 has been cancelled.

To all members:

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

There have been discussions among Management and Labor leaders regarding construction site precautions. 

The best way to fight Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is to stop its spread from person to person in our communities. To get the word out on how to do that, Mayor Lightfoot has reached out to local Labor organizations and asked us to pass on vital information and resources to our members.

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.

Great Lakes Credit Union is available to all members and staff.  If you would like more information regarding the advantages of joining and services offered, please contact them at (708) 576-2847.

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.

The R.E. Shepherd Scholarship Foundation will award four $5,000 scholarships based on academic achievement and potential, and one $5,000 scholarship to be determined by a random drawing of all those applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or above who did not win one of the four academic scholarships.
