2020 - 50, 40 and 25 Year Service Award Recipients

On behalf of the Officers and members of Administrative District Council 1 of Illinois, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our members who this year have achieved 50, 40 and 25 years of service and commitment to the union. Without your many years of hard work and support, the Local and its members would not be where we are today.

This has been a difficult and challenging year for everyone. Due to the pandemic, we regret that we are unable to celebrate this important occasion with our annual Retiree’s Luncheon, which has been canceled this year. We hope to be able to resume this tradition next year so we can celebrate in person.

In recognition and with appreciation for their years of service, recipients will be contacted individually regarding how they will be receiving their service award.  We have three 50-year members who sadly passed away this year. In loving memory, Dennis R. Schubert, Frank P. Puleo, and Edward J. Wrona are memorialized below, and their service awards have been presented to their families.

A complete list of all 50, 40 and 25-year service award recipients is attached at the end of this article.

To all our members who have achieved these milestone years of service, we thank you again for your dedication, hard work and support, and we wish you a heartfelt congratulations. Please stay safe and be well.


James Allen, President                  Mike Volpentesta, Secretary-Treasurer
