We are happy to announce that we will begin to hold regular in person Union meetings this month.  All meetings will be held at the union hall at 660 N.

Alderman Jim Gardiner of the 45th ward talks prevailing wage, project labor agreements, and the importance of skilled labor! 

Wednesday’s announcement brings us one step closer to repairing, rebuilding and restoring our country. Working people are continuing to bear the brunt of the greatest national crisis since the Great Depression, and any just recovery will require unprecedented federal investments in the working communities that have lost the most.

One of our members, Irvin Wheeler, lost his home during a recent apartment fire.  Thankfully, Irvin, his wife, and two daughters were able to make it out without injury, but everything they owned was lost. On behalf of ADC1 of Illinois, we want to thank everyone for their support and generosity shown to the Wheeler family during this difficult time. We were able to drop off clothing & cash donations from our members and office staff along with a generous furniture donation. 

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.

On this Veteran's Day, we want to salute and express our profound appreciation to our Veteran members and all Veterans throughout this country. Your unwavering courage, sacrifice and dedication have allowed all Americans to enjoy freedoms we at times take for granted.
