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.

A Message from General President Terry O’Sullivan

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This Memorial Day I hope you will join me in reflecting on the sacrifices of those who have made it possible for our freedom and democracy to endure.

As we continue to struggle with the impact of the global pandemic, the brave men and women of our armed forces, including thousands of LIUNA members, have quietly and nobly continued to fulfill their promise to protect our nation, often enduring long absences from their families.

Let us honor those who serve and have served with a solemn salute. We owe these patriots and heroes a debt of gratitude that can never truly be fully repaid. In their honor and out of respect for their sacrifices, we must redouble our efforts to build an even stronger union and country that provides opportunities to prosper when their service has ended.

On behalf of myself, LIUNA General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire General Executive Board, I wish each and every one of you a safe, meaningful, and enjoyable Memorial Day.

Juneteenth is now an official City Holiday for our Members.

During our first negotiation meeting with the City of Chicago we requested that the City honor Juneteenth this year even though our CBA does not expire until June 30. Today the City has agreed to honor our request therefore Juneteenth which falls on a Sunday this year will be observed, for employees who’s work day does not include Sunday, on Monday June 20th.

We need your help now! Protect our wages and benefits.
