A Salute to Our Armed Forces

A Solemn Salute to Our Armed Forces

On Veterans Day and Remembrance Day we salute the honor, courage and integrity of the men and women across the United States and Canada who serve and who have served in our armed forces.

The achievements and the sacrifices of veterans – thousands of them LIUNA members and loved ones of LIUNA members – have been made in the name of all of us. To protect our freedom, they have lost time with their families and spent countless days far from home. Many have been wounded, taken prisoner or made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives.

In the 116 years since our union’s founding, members have time and time again answered the call for Americans, for Canadians and for people around the world. It is up to each of us to not just honor their service, but to respect their service by ensuring that veterans return home, they and their families have the opportunities they for which they put their lives on the line.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, and the half-million men and women of LIUNA, I thank all the veterans in our lives and in our union. Let us make sure they know how much we honor and respect them. We are in their debt.

Step Forward on Protecting the Right to Organize Act

LIUNA PMS TAG.jpg

Step Forward on PRO Act, Progress for American Workers 

Washington, D.C. (September 26, 2019) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today on the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee mark-up of HR 2474, the PRO Act:

LIUNA commends the House Education and Labor Committee for passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. The right of workers to organize and form a union is a bedrock principle of a free and democratic society that helps ensure workers receive fair pay and benefits. Too often, this fundamental right is put in jeopardy.

The PRO Act will help by expanding the National Labor Relations Act to ensure that workers and unions have real, enforceable protections under the law. The law also expands remedies for workers whose rights have been violated as well as strengthening rights to organize and bargain for better working conditions, including preventing employers from misclassifying workers as supervisors and independent contractors, banning “captive audience” meetings, and pushing back on the recent so-called “right to work” laws with provisions allowing unions to collect fair share fees to cover representation costs.

LIUNA applauds the House Education and Labor Committee for their leadership on the PRO Act and urges the full U.S. House to quickly bring the legislation to the floor for a vote.

Back when workers put ‘we’ before ‘I’

Chicago Sun-Times  

PROVIDED PHOTO
The author’s late father Ed Vukmirovich (middle with mustache) is surrounded by his union brothers from Republic Steel in the late 1950s or early 1960s on Chicago’s Southeast Side.

Look at their faces. They are happy, capable, and perhaps a bit cocky.

The man with the mustache is my late father, Ed, surrounded by his union brothers from Republic Steel on Chicago’s Southeast Side. He worked at Republic for over 30 years, and for many of them he was a respected grievance committeeman, defending the rights of his fellow union members.

The photograph, a family classic, was taken in the late 1950s or very early ’60s. The occasion was a union meeting for Local 1033 of the United Steelworkers of America, and the place was some banquet hall, either in South Chicago or South Deering. He remembered where, while I, unfortunately, have long forgotten.

When the photograph was taken, my father would have been in his late 30s, and his face, like those of his friends, exudes a smiling confidence. But where did that confidence come from? A combat-tested, Navy veteran of World War II, as well as a youthful survivor of the Great Depression, he fought and labored and, at the moment the camera’s shutter clicked, was thriving, as was the labor movement in America. Paychecks were full, homes and cars were bought, and the hard years were fading into black and white.

If I had to pick a high point for organized labor in America during the 20th century, I wouldn’t, ironically, turn first to the steel industry, but to the auto industry. In 1950, the United Automobile Workers, headed by Walter Reuther, signed a labor contract with General Motors, a contract dubbed The Treaty of Detroit. The positive results for the workers (especially, and radical for its time, the cost of living adjustment), reverberated through other industries, including steel. All told, American

industry boomed and unions thrived, and so did the American economy.

When it comes to the state of unions today, however, I don’t share my father’s confident smile.

Locally, there have been some clear skies. As part of a global effort to unionize IKEA facilities, workers at the Joliet and Mokena locations recently voted to join the IAM, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. In addition, members of AFSCME Council 31 voted in June to accept a new contract with the state after four years of stalemate under the administration of Gov. Bruce Rauner. Then in July, SEIU Local 1 secured union contracts for belabored workers at O’Hare Airport.

On the other hand, there’s potential rough weather ahead, both locally and nationally. To start, the UAW is attempting to negotiate a new contract for the workers at the Southeast Side facility and other Ford plants. Negotiations began in mid-July, and as of this writing, are still ongoing.

Next, 27 states currently have active “rightto-work” laws, which create what are known as “open shops,” whereby employees at unionized workplaces (public, but some private), are able to opt out of union membership. They do not have to pay what are known as “fair share dues” while still benefiting from most of the protections of the given union’s contract. (Fair share dues are based on the premise that non-union workers still benefit from being in a unionized workplace and so should pay their “fair share” to maintain the union.)

Further, the concept behind right-to-work laws was, essentially, expanded nationally — at least in regards to public unions — on June 27, 2018, when the Supreme Court ruled, in Illinois Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, that “fair share” was unconstitutional. Many feared that Janus would be potentially damaging to unions, but as the Sun-Times’ Lynn Sweet reported on the oneyear anniversary of Janus, the damage seems, for now, to be minimal.

While this might be true, the Janus ruling should be viewed as an attempt by the courts and government to erode the power of unions.

However, the greatest obstacle to strong unions is the decline of a collective mindset. To be in a union is to accept “we” over “I.” Too many people today are too self-centered, selfimportant, and can’t think past the “I,” or some image on a screen.

Collective action requires collective thought, and both are hard to attain and maintain.

Will unions, with their economic benefits and potential political muscle, ever return to the status they held in the 1950s and ’60s? If they do, we will, ideally, see faces like those in the photograph, as unions, strong unions, have the potential to cut across social, political and racial lines, uniting us rather than dividing us. But before there can be a union resurgence, we need to change our individual and collective mindsets.

The men in the photograph knew how to act for their, and our, common good.

A Labor Day Message from General President Terry O’Sullivan

img_0004

August 30, 2019


Labor Day is Our Day

As we begin the Labor Day weekend, it is important to remember that Labor Day is our holiday – a commemoration of the work we do each and every day, and the struggles of all working men and women to create economic equality in the United States and Canada. No one deserves this honor more than the strong, proud, and united members of LIUNA.

Labor Day was instituted to recognize the contributions of working men and women in both our countries. In the more than 100 years since the holiday was first celebrated, LIUNA members have continued to risk their livelihoods and even their lives in the fight for justice, honor, and strength for all workers. And by doing so, we have helped to create the largest middle class in the history of mankind.

However, we must recommit ourselves to fight against the anti-union, anti- worker forces of evil that threaten both unions and the middle class. We must combat efforts to gut our pay and benefits, push back on so-called right-to-work laws and the repeal of prevailing wage laws. We must protect the right to negotiate in the public and private sector, and fight for comprehensive immigration reform.

We cannot allow this continuing war on working people to shrink the middle class and worsen income inequality. That means we have to fight to protect and expand upon all that our union and the labor movement has accomplished.

On this holiday, let us commemorate all we and those that came before us have accomplished, and as always, 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, relaxing, and well-deserved Labor Day.

A Message from LiUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan

img_0004

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I can sum up the results of what LIUNA accomplished very easily – we kicked ass. The activism we demonstrated was extraordinary and reflects the greatness of LIUNA. More than 88,000 LIUNA members sent in comments to the Department of Labor – the lion share of the 325,000 comments submitted.

I am very proud of the hard work of each and every one of you.  From job site visits to meetings, events, phone calls, emails and social media, I know you did everything in your power to encourage members to fight to protect our jobs and our livelihoods.

Whether it’s submitting comments to the Department of Labor, raising our voices with Congress or the Administration, when LIUNA gets in the game, we show the anti-worker, anti-union special interests what it means to Feel the Power!

thanksemail

I want to personally thank you for everything you did to protect registered apprenticeship programs in the construction industry. Together, we demonstrated that any effort to undermine our training and apprenticeship programs will be proudly and vigorously defended.

Although the comment period is over, we must remain vigilant. The special interests who are pushing IRAPs in construction will continue to advocate for anti-worker policies wherever and whenever they can. I urge you to continue to engage, educate and activate LIUNA members on the issues that affect our pay, our benefits, and our way of life.

LIUNA will continue to monitor the DOL regulatory process and will keep you updated on the DOL’s final rule.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I want to express our pride in your commitment, dedication, and leadership.  I never doubted that we could rise to this challenge and I was not disappointed.

May you always Feel the Power, Use the Power, and Be the Power!

Stop IRAPs Now!

irapsSm

Over the last few weeks you may have seen or heard about protecting the Apprenticeship Programs for all trades, including the Laborers’.

Right now, there is a big push to let non-union organizations establish apprenticeship programs, called IRAPs.

So as a Local 1001 member what does that mean to you?

First and foremost, we are all LiUNA brothers and sisters and we MUST stand together and support each other in the true meaning of UNION.

If these non-union organizations are successful they will be able to supply apprentice labor at a much lower rate of pay and benefits, which in turn will affect ALL of Union labor across the board.

How will this affect you? You may not be an apprentice but your rate of pay whether prevailing wage or not can and will be at risk.

Even those in Sanitation must realize that a lower wage for prevailing rate means a lower wage for the non-prevailing rate members. Our success in getting the rate we currently have for the non-prevailing rate is based on the prevailing rate, if that rate goes down, as it will with the IRAPs, then all of us can expect to see a reduction in wages and benefits.

This is not only an outside, or construction issue, this is an issue that ALL of us MUST ACT ON NOW!

Sending an email right now to the Department of Labor will let your voice be heard. And it will literally take you less than a minute to do.

We only have until August 26, 2019, to tell the DOL that IRAPs are not good for us or our Union brothers and sisters and MUST be stopped.

Please don’t wait a minute longer, go online and take a few seconds to protect your wages and benefits now.

We have also included a link our our app to take you directly to the LiUNA comments page. Please Click Here or go to our app now!

Support Operation Help-A-Hero

vet2019

The Chicago Laborers’ District Council is Proud to Support Operation Help-A-Hero

There are hundreds of homeless Veterans in Chicago. The City of Chicago is working hard to create a system where any episode of homelessness is rare and brief through the End Veterans Homelessness Initiative (EVHI). As we house these veterans, the transition from shelter or transitional housing to permanent housing, means many veterans do not have basic items to set up a home. Mayor Lightfoot, the City Council, and Jewel-Osco are joining together in the month of June to help homeless Veterans in Chicago by creating move-in kits.

*ONLY NEW, STORE BOUGHT ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Please drop off new household items at your Alderman’s Office, local Jewel-Osco or participating Chicago Park District location by June 30th.

A Message from General President Terry O’Sullivan

Memorial Day

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This Memorial Day weekend, many of us will spend time with friends and family and enjoying a day off that marks the transition to summer. But while we have a holiday, tens of thousands of brave men and women in the Armed Services – including many LIUNA members – will have no respite. They and their families accept daily hardships and dangers in order to protect our democracy and freedom.

We owe these patriotic men and women, some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice, losing their lives in defense of our nation, a debt of gratitude. This weekend, take a moment to reflect and honor all those who have served. As we do so, let us also continue to build a stronger LIUNA and country, so that returning veterans have opportunities to prosper when their service has ended.

On behalf of myself and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I wish each and every one of you an enjoyable and meaningful Memorial Day.
