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.

Aldermen broaden umbrella to save Rahm’s home-loan program for high-crime areas

By Fran Spielman – Chicago Sun-Times

Two years ago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel set aside $3 million to provide “forgivable,” $30,000 loans to police officers and firefighters in hopes it would stabilize high-crime neighborhoods.

The program has been a bust, with just 13 loans and two pending — either because the income ceiling is too low or the boundaries are too narrow.

On Tuesday, the City Council’s Budget Committee moved to salvage the program by changing the name, broadening the umbrella of eligible recipients and expanding the geographic area where homes may be purchased.

Instead of confining the program to police officers, firefighters and paramedics in six police districts, the loans also will be made available to rank-and-file members of Laborers Locals 1001 and 1092.

Those unions represent several thousand employees of the city Department of Streets and Sanitation, Aviation and Water Management. Those unions have been among Emanuel’s biggest supporters — both financially, and in their willingness to agree to work rule and pension concessions.

Joe Healy, business manager of Laborers Local 1092, said he’s confident there will be plenty of takers.

“We’ve got over 450 members who live in those areas. Multiple members have been asking to be included in this program,” Healy said. “They are anchors of those communities already. They are anxious to put down roots and become homeowners in the communities they already live in.”

The name of the program will also change. It’s no longer the “Public Safety Office Homebuyers Assistance Program.” It’ll now be called “Community Connection Homebuyers Assistance.”

Details of the new and expanded targeted area are still in flux, under the ordinance championed by Ald. Emma Mitts (37th), whose impoverished ward will be home to the new $95 million police and fire training academy in West Garfield Park.

It simply allows for “such additional police districts and census tracts as shall be designated by” the city’s housing commissioner.

“We have some laborers coming on with the city who may want to take advantage of it. They’re coming into the apprenticeships program. They’ll now have an opportunity to be first-time homebuyers,” Mitts said Tuesday.

Mitts said she is also “open to having a conversation” with mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot about changing the eligibility requirements and raising the income ceiling needed to qualify for the $30,000 loans.

For now, the income ceiling remains 150 percent of the median area income. When the program was launched, that was roughly $82,950 a year for single officers and $118,500 a year for a family of four. That essentially confined the assistance to younger officers, which might have been part of the problem.

Eligible employees must secure a mortgage from a private lender to buy a single-family home or two-flat that would become their primary residence. They also must agree to live in the homes for the entire 10-year period.

If not, they are required to repay $3,000 for every year of the 10 years that they don’t live there.

The earlier program was confined to parts of six police districts that need both the economic shot in the arm and the added safety that comes with having police officers, firefighters and paramedics as residents.

Those neighborhoods included parts of Auburn-Gresham; Austin; Brighton Park; Chatham; East and West Garfield Park; Englewood and West Englewood; Gage Park; Greater Grand Crossing; Humboldt Park; New City, and North and South Lawndale.

When the program was launched, Ald. Pat Dowell (3rd) urged Emanuel to extend the incentive to “other areas that are now considered to be Tier 2 police districts.”

“There is crime being experienced in those districts. I call those communities ‘on the bubble.’ You want to be able to keep families in those communities. The extent to which the city shows its interest in putting resources in those community is very important,” Dowell said then.

Ald. Michael Scott (24th) has questioned how the city would “police the police” and make certain that officers are not “getting this $30,000, getting a home and renting it out.”

“This is an important program — especially in a community like mine where there is violence on a day-to-day basis,” Scott said on that day.

“To make sure that we have first responders there engaging with the community goes a long way to bridge the gap that we currently have between community and police, but also to stabilize communities like north Lawndale and East and West Garfield.”

Former Mayor Richard M. Daley tried a similar incentive in the early 1990s, with only mixed results.

Police officers buying homes for the first time in nine low- or moderate income neighborhoods were given $5,000 subsidies and required to make a down payment of just 3 percent of the purchase price.

Emanuel’s plan was more generous in hopes that the incentive would be enough to lure a fresh crop of newly hired police officers to buy homes in areas plagued by gang violence.

But, that plan plan barely moved the needle either, setting the stage for the changes made Tuesday.

Thanks to All!

As a 40 plus year member of LiUNA Local 1001 I have seen a lot, been thru a lot both personally and as a member of this great Union.

Over time just like with most everything else the freshness and enthusiasm can wear off and admittedly it has done so with my dreams and dedication for our Union.

For the first time in history Local 1001 put it out to the membership to take a survey on what candidate they would support, and the participation, although the time period was very short, was great.

Just two weeks ago our Union decided to get into the Mayor’s race here in Chicago and endorse Lori Lightfoot.

Within 48 hours of that announcement, at our Monthly Membership Meeting, the members began stepping up and had a huge presence at the Lightfoot rally on that same Sunday.

I was there and honestly was overwhelmed by the crowd of orange in the room, including Lori Lightfoot herself sporting a Local 1001 orange windbreaker that one of your e-board members had given to her.

And just a few days later the number of volunteer members who I witnessed at the Local 1001 office to phone bank and the number of members of volunteers who signed up on line was amazing to me.

This past Saturday the great members of Local 1001 showed the strength of our Local Union by coming out to one of Lightfoot’s rally’s in Pilsen, again a lasting impression on everyone who was able to be there and I was proud to stand with all of you.

And I would like to also mention the hundreds and hundreds of members who supported this Local Union, Lori Lightfoot and the other Aldermanic Candidates in this election cycle by coming out to vote for our candidates.  All of you were amazing.

You have inspired me to continue on with the freshness and enthusiasm that I had over 40 years ago for this Local Union and its members.

I am proud of each and every one of you and I promise the energy and spirit you have revived in me will continue to motivate me to best serve this great Union of ours.

We’re Union and We Ain’t Going Nowhere!

 

Thanks to all of you from a proud 40 year Local 1001 member.

Bob Chianelli

Men and Women of LiUNA Local 1001 thank you!

To all the citizens of the City of Chicago,

My name is Bob Chianelli and I am a proud 40-year member of LiUNA Local 1001, right here in the City of Chicago.
My brothers and sisters of Local 1001 are the proud, dedicated, hard-working men and women who keep your airports clean and safe, your streets and sidewalks repaired, trim your trees, pick up your residential refuse and a myriad of other essential services for the City of Chicago.
Today I am personally grateful to each of these men and women who, unlike any of the private contractors, came out and serviced your airports, streets and alleys, as they do each and every day.
That is correct, those men and women were out there all day today, in the record setting cold, working to service you, the citizens of the City of Chicago.
Our members often get a bad rap for nothing more than being City workers but after today no one, and I mean no one, can question their dedication and commitment to their job as a City employee.
What they do each and every day mostly goes unnoticed but on days like today and tomorrow, when even the post office has suspended mail delivery, our men and women are out there doing what they are better at than any private contractor in the world.
So, if you see my brothers and sisters out in the dangerous cold doing their job under the worst conditions imaginable remember they are out there for you and I could not be any prouder of each and every one of them both as their brother union member and as a citizen of the City of Chicago.
Men and Women of LiUNA Local 1001 thank you for all that you do.
