A Message from GP Terry O’Sullivan on MLK Day

Honoring the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it remains as important today as it was during Dr. King’s lifetime that each of us commits to fighting for the better world he envisioned, where people are measured by their character and their actions. We must continue the work he began to realize his dream of an America free of the scourge of racism and extremism.

Dr. King saw the cause of labor and the fight for civil rights as inextricably linked. Unions have always been at the forefront of the movement for social, economic, and racial justice. We must make our unions bigger, stronger and more active, so the uplifting and equalizing power of collective bargaining contracts are available to all.

We can make Dr. King’s dream real so that every American, regardless of religion, ethnicity, gender, wealth or the lack of it, has equal rights and equal opportunity. But we have to act to achieve his dream. We must speak out forcefully and unequivocally against bias, bigotry and racism whether it is in our community or in our halls of power.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I ask you to join me in continuing to fight for the legacy of Dr. King and his vision of a better America.

Contract Negotiations Update

The Coalition of Unionized Public Employees (COUPE), came to several important tentative agreements with the City of Chicago yesterday during a 17-hour bargaining session. It is important to note that COUPE negotiations are not complete, and that once the COUPE portion of negotiations are complete, we still must complete Local 1001 specific negotiations before we have a contract. But given the significance of the agreements reached yesterday, we wanted to update you and make sure you have accurate and timely information. To be clear: these are not all of the agreements we have made so far, but a brief summary of some of the agreements that have been reached.

Once the contract is ratified:

1. Sick Time: Hourly employees will begin to earn one half of a paid sick day for each month worked. These sick days will roll over. Salaried employees will continue to earn a full paid sick day each month.

2. Carry Over Days: Employees with less than ten years of service will be able to carry over 5 days (instead of 3), and employees with ten or more years of service will be able to carry over 7 days (instead of 5).

3. Holidays:Veterans’ Day is now a paid holiday for all eligible employees.
Juneteenth is now a paid holiday for all eligible employees.

4. Prevailing Rate Pay: Prevailing rate employees will continue to be paid the prevailing rate.

5. Salary Titles Pay: Those is salary titles will receive the following increases:
Effective (retroactively) July 1, 2022, 3%
Effective (retroactively) January 1, 2023, 3%
Effective January 1, 2024, a base of 3% on up to 5% depending on inflation
Effective January 1, 2025, a base of 3% on up to 5% depending on inflation
Effective January 1, 2026, a base of 3% on up to 5% depending on inflation
Effective January 1, 2027, 3.25%

6. Bonus: Pandemic bonuses for those that were on the payroll between July 1, 2022 and the date of ratification. $1,000 on January 1, 2024 and $2,000 on January 1, 2025. Whether you retire before then or not you will get both payments.

7. Single Call in Days: Employees can use 9 vacation days as single call-in days (instead of the current 6).

8. Single Scheduled Days: Employees can use 9 vacation days as scheduled single days (instead of the current 6).

9. Deferred Compensation Match: The City will match the following amounts into employees’ deferred compensation (457) accounts:
In 2023, up to $500 per year
In 2024, if the employee puts in at least $500 the City will put in $750
In 2025, if the employee puts in at least $500 the City will put in $750
In 2026, if the employee puts in at least $500 the City will put in $750
In 2027, if the employee puts in at least $500 the City will put in $875

  1. Health Insurance Premiums: There will be no increase in the percentage of health insurance premiums paid by the employee.

    Again to make this perfectly clear, these provisions are not yet in place, and will not be in place until there is a contract, which might not be for several months. But the City has agreed to each of them once there is a contract. There are still numerous issues that are still outstanding, and we will continue to update you as we progress through the negotiations.

Thanks for you continued support and the hard work that all of you do every day.

We’re Stronger Together, We’re Union and We Ain’t Going Nowhere!

Merry Christmas for LiUNA Local 1001

December 24, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The challenges and obstacles we have faced in 2022 as a Union have been overwhelmingly addressed and resolved all due to the strength of the men and women of this local union.

Your dedication not only to your work but to your Union has not gone unnoticed by the Officers, Executive Board and Staff of LiUNA Local 1001.

Your strength and support during the year has moved and inspired us to keep driving forward in our commitment to make this Union the strongest it has ever been. With your support we have once again proven to the City, and the citizens of Chicago, the great benefit of having Union Public Sector Laborers working in all aspects of city services, including Aviation, Sanitation, Transportation and so many others. The value, each and every one of our members bring to the table every day is an affirmation that our members are the men and women that keep Chicago moving day in and day out.

Without your hard work we would never have been able to have so many new positions added to our membership this year and we never ever would have had the opportunity to have worked with the City and announce that for the first time in modern history Local 1001 has ZERO seasonal layoffs. We could not have done this without your help and the hard work that you do every day.

On behalf of myself, Secretary Treasurer Victor Roa, and the entire Local 1001 Executive Board, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Healthy New Year.

We’re Stronger Together, We’re Union and We Ain’t Going Nowhere!

A Solemn Salute to Our Armed Forces

On this Veterans Day and Remembrance Day, we solemnly and gratefully salute our veterans for their honor, courage, and patriotism. The men and women who serve and have served in our armed forces across the United States and Canada are a constant reminder of the sacrifices of those who proudly, faithfully, and honorably protect our democracy and our freedom. Many veterans are wounded, taken prisoner, or make the ultimate sacrifice with their lives for the good of our countries. It is their dedication, commitment, and loyalty – many of them LIUNA members and loved ones of LIUNA members – that form the bedrock of our two great nations.

Time after time, they have answered the call for Americans, for Canadians, and for people around the world. It is our duty to ensure that when they return home, they and their families have access to health care and economic opportunities. It is unacceptable that too often veterans struggle to meet their basic needs when their service ends. Veterans should be able to return to their families to live in prosperity with good family-supporting jobs and access to top-notch health care.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, and each of the half-million men and women of LIUNA, I thank the veterans in our lives, in our union, and in our countries. We are forever in their debt.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD – PLEASE VOTE!

Today is election day and you still have time to have your voices heard. Please get to the polls and cast your vote. The Workers Rights Amendment is the first thing on your ballot, voting YES on this will insure EVERY worker in Illinois will have the right to bargain for better pay, working conditions and benefits. Please if you vote for nothing else, make sure to check YES to the first thing on your ballot today.

A Message from Mayor Lightfoot about yesterday’s tragedy.

To our Streets and Sanitation Workers,

I would like to express my deepest condolences to all of you who are feeling the loss of your colleague, Mr. Bowersox and share this video message with you. I have also extended my condolences to his family, his union, and Commissioner Cole Stallard.

This is a shocking and devastating loss for your department and our city. Streets and Sanitation workers are vital and valued employees who keep Chicago running, safe, and clean. I know how courageous you all have been in your work, particularly over the past two years. On behalf of our city, I hope you know that you are appreciated and you are not alone during this difficult time.

I remind you that there are resources and supports available to you if you need help managing your stress and grief. Please, take the time and space that you need to heal. Our city needs you in order to succeed—but we cannot truly succeed if you are not healthy and whole.

I cannot thank you enough for the hard work and sacrifice you give to our city each and every day. If there is more the City can do to support you at this time, please reach out to your leadership.

Thank you and God bless you.

Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, apparently is NOT for Laborers!

The City of Chicago and the Mayor are continually preaching about diversity, equity and inclusion in the workforce, but apparently that does not pertain to their own employees. The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) is currently fighting our Union, LiUNA Local 1001, over the hire of an Airport Maintenance Foreman. Currently there are three vacancies for that position.

CDA has been paying outrageous amounts of overtime to the current Airport Maintenance Foremen in order to not hire from their own pre-qualified candidate list. We have always agreed to extend these hire lists but they refuse to this time because they do not want the person who is next on the list to be promoted, even though that person has worked nearly 16 years as a Laborer in CDA. Currently there are approximately a combined 85 Laborers/General Laborers in CDA. Of those there are approximately 31 females of which 25 are women of color. Yet, there are no female Airport Maintenance Foreman, zero.

The employee being denied the promotion is a woman of color.

The Department has been coming up with every excuse imaginable to deny this employee the promotion. We, the Union, have responded and cited examples of promotions that dispute and discredit their excuses, but they continue to deny the employee who is on their own pre-qualified candidate list. They even violated their own policy and past practice of offering the promotion to the employee while she was off with an injury, by the way another one of their lame excuses, which we pointed out to them that they just did for a male employee back in May of this year. The employee is currently back at work and the Commissioner’s office along with the Mayor’s office are aware of this.

If you happen to be in the terminals at O’Hare airport you will have the pleasure of viewing the looping video with a parade of vendors who the Mayor taunts as promoting equity for people of color, yet she and her staff obviously don’t want the same at the employee level, especially when it comes to Laborers.

The buck has been passed around long enough from responses like, that’s above my pay grade, to, we will look into it and get back to you, which by the way never happens. If the Mayor is truly for diversity, equity and inclusion then maybe she or CDA Commissioner Rhee can explain why this hiring fiasco has been going on for months and is costing the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars in overtime in order to prevent this woman of color from getting the position she qualified for under their criteria and is rightfully entitled to?

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)

The Biden Admin suspended some of the rules for Public Sector Loan Forgiveness that would allow for previously unqualified payments and suspended payments to qualify for the 10-year Public Service Loan Forgiveness. The most important thing that happens is the consolidation of loans into a Direct Loan on an income-Driven repayment plan and that the individual file the necessary paperwork to prove employment and apply for the program. The suspended rules allow significant opportunity to have previously unqualified payments to qualify, but those rules are set to expire 10/31/22.

We know that some members may have student loans and that those are incredibly burdensome so we wanted to reach out to ensure that you all are aware of Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), if you aren’t already. The FSA has a program that will allow forgiveness of student loans for Public Employees after 120 payments (10 years) on your student loans. We’ve put together a short guide to help ensure that you qualify for the program.

  1. Be employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization (federal service includes U.S. military service);
  2. Work full-time for that agency or organization;
  3. Have Direct Loans (or consolidate other federal student loans into a Direct Loan);
  1. Repay your loans under an income-driven repayment plan*; and
  2. Make 120 qualifying payments.
  3. Fill out the PLSF form Annually. If you haven’t filled it out for prior years, submit one for each year of public service. FSA will respond to the submittal giving a status update for the forgiveness of the loans.
  1. At the end of the 120 Qualifying Monthly payments, submit the PLSF Form again to certify it

You can check your loan status HERE to see whether or not you are on a consolidated loan in an income driven repayment plan. Under most scenarios, the income driven repayment plan will also be the cheapest option.

As a note: If you were on a direct loan in an income driven repayment plan before payments were deferred on student loans due to COVID-19, each month that has been deferred will still qualify as one of the 120 payments regardless of payment.

If you are not in a Direct Loan in an income-driven repayment plan, it is still possible for you to apply and have the deferred months and previous payments qualify under the following rule changes from the FSA that are in effect until 10/31/22

The rule changes state that you can:

  • Receive credit for periods of repayment on Direct, FFEL, or Perkins Loans
  • Periods of repayment under any plan count
  • Periods of repayment on loans before consolidation count, even if on the wrong repayment plan
  • Periods of repayment where payments were late or for less than the amount due also count
  • Periods of repayment on loans before consolidation count, even if paid late or for less than the amount due
  • Can get forgiveness even if not employed or not employed by a qualifying employer at the time of application and forgiveness

For more information from the FSA, these two links would be a helpful jumping off point.

The City Suspends Twice a Week COVID Testing

This City of Chicago sent out the memo below concerning the change to the Vaccination Policy.

Dear Colleagues,

In line with recent changes to CDC Guidance, effective immediately, the City of Chicago will suspend the twice weekly testing requirement under the Vaccination Policy for its employees and contractors, except for employees and contractors in the City’s Department of Public Health (“CDPH”) who are required to test if unvaccinated under the Governor’s Executive Order. The City reserves the right to reinstate testing if recommended by the CDC or CDPH. All other requirements under the City’s Vaccination Policy remain in effect.

Chicago has recently moved to a Medium COVID-19 Risk Level based on metrics for Cook County.  As such, while masking is not required, CDPH recommends the wearing of masks in indoor public spaces, including in all City work facilities, regardless of vaccination status.

In addition to wearing a mask while indoors, here are other ways you can protect yourself, your co-workers, your family members, and your community:

  • Stay home if you experience any COVID-like symptoms, which include fever, coughing, headache, sore throat, body aches, congestion, shortness of breath, and loss of taste and smell.
  • If you experience any COVID-like symptoms, get tested right away.  At-home tests are covered by your health insurance.
  • Make sure that you are up-to-date with your COVID vaccinations and boosters.
  • If you contract COVID or are exposed to someone who has contracted COVID, let your HR liaison know right away and follow the CDC guidelines for isolation and quarantining.

CDPH continues to offer vaccines, including boosters, to any Chicagoan including employees and family members free of charge through the Protect Chicago At Home program. At home vaccine appointments are available on weekdays and weekends in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings by calling 312-746-4385 or visiting Protect Chicago At Home.

Thank you for your continued dedication to keeping each other safe, as well as being respectful of everyone’s choice to either wear or not wear a mask at this time.
