City Vaccination Policy Update

We continue to meet with the City regarding their proposed vaccination policy.  There are still some fundamental differences regarding the policy we are attempting to work through.  However, we have made some progress.  Please let me make this perfectly clear, we have not reached an agreement, and it is unclear whether we will reach an agreement.  We will update you as soon as we have more information.

The City informed us it will send out an email to employees this morning (Friday) informing them that the portal to report vaccination status and to request religious/medical exemptions is open. The email will also inform them that October 15, 2021 is the date by which they either need to be fully vaccinated or begin a testing regimen.

Below is the text of the City email:

Dear City Colleagues,

As you are already aware, the City of Chicago is requiring all City employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 15, 2021. Employees who are not fully vaccinated by October 15, 2021 will need to undergo regular COVID-19 testing. While we are continuing to work with our labor partners on finalizing a vaccination policy that is effective, fair and workable, employees who have been fully vaccinated can begin reporting their vaccination status beginning today. If you are already fully vaccinated, you can submit your vaccination information at: https://www.chicago.gov/vaxportal.

“Fully vaccinated” means two weeks past the second dose of a two dose mNRA vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna) or two weeks past a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Additional information about testing, including how long the testing option will be available and how to submit test results will be provided as soon as the policy is finalized.

You can safely and securely submit your vaccination records via the City of Chicago Employee Vaccination Portal. The portal is compliant with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements for keeping data secure. 

In order to submit your vaccination information, you will need to provide information about the type of vaccine that you received. You will also need to upload either a scanned copy or photograph of your vaccination card. If you have lost your vaccination card, you can request a copy of your vaccination record by visiting: https://redcap.link/izrequestform

You will also need to provide your Employee ID # when submitting your information. You can find your Employee ID # on your payroll slip or you can contact your department’s HR Liaison to obtain this information. 

Employees can apply for a medical or religious accommodation to be exempt from the requirement to be fully vaccinated. The accommodation forms are attached to this email. If you are applying for a medical or a religious accommodation, you can email your completed form to vaccineexemptions@cityofchicago.org or you can provide the completed form to your department’s HR Liaison and they will forward the form to the Department of Human Resources. Requests will be processed on a case-by-case basis in the order they are received.   

If you have any questions about how to submit your vaccination information or how to submit an accommodation request, please contact your department’s HR Liaison. 

Thank you,

Sybil Madison                                    Christopher Owen

Labor Day is Our Day

September 3, 2021


Labor Day is Our Day

On this Labor Day, we lay claim to a holiday meant to recognize the sacrifice, struggle and sweat of working men and women who have built our nations. It is workers and their unions who are on the frontlines, carrying us through economic ups and downs, through wars, and through pandemics, and none have done so willingly as the strong, proud and united members of LIUNA across the U.S. and Canada. 

This Labor Day finds a new day dawning in the United States, with the promise of a transformational investment that will finally repair our crumbling infrastructure and create good, LIUNA jobs. In both the United States and Canada, we are working to build a stronger middle-class, strengthen union rights, and looking forward to the eventual end of a pandemic that has destabilized and taken too many lives.

Yet still, all too often the hopes, dreams and aspirations of working people continue to be crushed by barbaric anti-union campaigns, by racism and bigotry, by inequality and by greed. As LIUNA members, we stand ready to fight, and we know that for all that ails our nations, there is no quicker nor more certain cure than a union card.

On this holiday, let us reclaim the true meaning of Labor Day and be inspired by the words of the militant union warrior and martyr Joe Hill, who so eloquently spoke of the power of workers united in solidarity, “If the workers took a notion they could stop all speeding trains; every ship upon the ocean they can tie with mighty chains.”

It is through our union’s strength and resolve that our nations thrive. May every LIUNA member feel the power, be the power and use the power! On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I wish you and your family a safe, meaningful and well-deserved Labor Day.

We need your help to create more good union jobs now!

August 30, 2021

Dear Members, 

The $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill pending in Congress means jobs for Laborers for years to come. 

Act now to invest in your career: www.LiUNA.org/bif.

Contact your congressperson and urge immediate passage of the bill. It will only take a few moments to follow the link www.LiUNA.org/bif, fill in your name and address, then push submit and a prewritten email will be sent to your representative on your behalf. 

This is a massive investment and the most important action you can take is to tell congress how important this bill is to a generation of Laborers. 

Thank you, 

Bob Chianelli

Business Manager – LiUNA 1001

About today’s vaccine mandate announcement

A MESSAGE FROM THE LiUNA 1001 BUSINESS MANAGER

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  

The proud strong members of LiUNA Local 1001 have been working day in and day out throughout this entire pandemic putting their safety and health on the line to keep Chicago running and I want to thank each and every one of you.  

This Local Union, along with our brothers and sisters from across the labor movement, have been working since day one of this pandemic to protect our members by fighting for safety procedures for everyone.  

There are opposing views and beliefs about the benefits of vaccination but I do not believe that punitive mandates will significantly increase the number of our members who will choose to be vaccinated. On the contrary, I believe it will have the opposite effect and dishearten the men and women who have kept this city functional for the past 18 months.

In reality there have only been a couple of meetings with the City concerning this issue and I am  hoping this vaccination policy can be resolved through continued discussions and negotiations, and not public communications.

Local 1001, along with many of the other unions, have strongly expressed to the City that any vaccination policy must include not only medical and religious exemptions but also testing alternatives.

I promise to do what I was elected to do and that is to stand with our members and demand they get the respect to make their own choice on this very serious and personal issue.  

In Solidarity,

Bob Chianelli

Infrastructure Deal!

LIUNA PMS TAG.jpg


Infrastructure Deal Win for Good Jobs Building America

Washington, D.C. (June 24, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

The bipartisan infrastructure deal announced by the White House is a bold and transformational investment in our nation’s infrastructure that will put Laborers to work and help union families build better lives. The $1.2 trillion package will add significantly to existing investment and create hundreds of thousands of good union jobs building our roads and bridges, upgrading our drinking water and power systems, and improving infrastructure resiliency. These investments will bolster our economic well-being and secure our infrastructure for years to come.

LIUNA commends the vision of the Biden Administration and the bipartisan group of legislators who have joined with the President to craft an infrastructure package that will build and restore our nation. The collaboration and cooperation from both parties on this historic legislation is both a testament to the importance of infrastructure and an encouraging sign that lawmakers can come together on issues vital to our way of life.

We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration and members of Congress for passage of this legislation and to ensure each and every job created through public spending has the strongest of labor protections.

Newly Elected Local 1001 Officers Sworn In.

Local 1001 Officers sworn in.

Chicago Laborers’ District Council Secretary Treasurer Charles LoVerde III did the honor of swearing in the new LiUNA Local 1001 Officers in our hall today. He inspired the new officers not only by swearing them in but he put on loan an International award that was given to his father, Charles in 2003, for outstanding service to the Public Sector, a true Union leader and an inspiration to anyone in the labor movement who ever met him. The presentation was a moving experience for the entire team and will be an inspiration to achieve greatness for the members of Local 1001 as both Chuck and his dad have done for our sister Local Union 1092 and the Chicago Laborers’ District Council.

Juneteenth is a Sacred Holiday Honoring Black Lives and Resilience

Washington, D.C. (June 17, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

President Biden’s signature on legislation making Juneteenth a new federal holiday is a symbolic and important step forward in honoring Black lives by recognizing and commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. The broad bipartisan support for Juneteenth in Congress is both commendable and a reassuring sign that despite the seemingly unrelenting political strife there is consensus on the fundamental crimes in our nation’s past. LIUNA urges lawmakers to be equally clear-eyed and open to policy solutions to address the sins of the present in order that our nation might live up to our highest ideals of equity, opportunity, and fairness to all men and women regardless of race, color, or creed.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Confirmation of Secretary Walsh

DOL Will Be Restored and Re-Energized as Powerful Guardian of Workers

Washington, D.C. (March 22, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

The confirmation of Marty Walsh as U.S. Secretary of Labor heralds a new day for the working men and women of our nation.

Secretary Walsh is a dues-paying, card-carrying, second-generation member of the Laborers’ International Union of North America whose dedication and devotion to the cause, the purpose, and the mission of the Labor Movement is unwavering. I am confident that he will restore and re-energize the Department of Labor’s role as a powerful guardian of workers, and strong and effective enforcer of labor laws. He will fight for all working people, regardless of where they come from, what language they speak, or what kind of work they do. He will work to bring skills training and a stronger voice on the job to millions of American workers who too often have been exploited or disregarded.

Secretary Walsh is an inspirational embodiment of the American Dream: he worked his way up from the field to become a leader of LIUNA Local 223, the head of the Boston Metropolitan Building Trades Council, Mayor of Boston, and now, Labor Secretary. As a labor leader, Marty Walsh helped thousands of workers build strong, middle-class lives for themselves and their families. As mayor, he proudly wore his union affiliation on his sleeve, never forgetting where he came from. As Labor Secretary, he will continue to fight for an economy that rewards work and working people.

Secretary Walsh is also committed to labor-management cooperation. Marty understands that labor and management are co-dependent; our members rely on our signatory contractors to create good jobs and economic opportunity, and our signatory contractors rely on our safe, well-trained members to perform quality work on time and on budget. Marty knows that labor and management cannot succeed without each other, and that true labor-management cooperation moves our country and our economy forward.

On behalf of the half-million members of LIUNA, I can say we are awed and inspired that the top labor post in our great country is occupied by one of our own. We congratulate Secretary Walsh on his confirmation and look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead.
