A Message from LiUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan

April 22, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Over the past few months, our lives have changed dramatically.  Tens of thousands of our fellow Americans and Canadians – loved ones, friends, and coworkers – have lost their lives to COVID-19, and many more have fallen ill.  If you have lost someone, you have our deepest condolences and sympathy.  If you are sick, we wish you a speedy and full recovery.

If you are still working, you have our eternal gratitude; your sacrifice and courage have not gone unnoticed.  The work you do is critical to protecting our communities, our countries, and our way of life.  You are facing unique and unprecedented risks, and you are putting the needs of others before your own.  On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I thank you for your selfless effort, determination, and bravery.

At every level of our great International Union, we are doing what Laborers always do; we carry on through adversity and crisis.  The foundation built by our predecessors and each and every one of you provides us with the tools and resources to respond quickly, strategically, and effectively to this unparalleled public health emergency.  As always, we continue to conduct the business of our union; we are developing work site safety protocols to protect the most valuable asset of our union, our members; we are making sure our voices and our views continue to be heard by elected officials; and we are fighting for relief and stimulus packages that put our members and their families first.

I want to recognize the incredible job that our District Councils, Local Unions, and affiliated funds are doing to respond to this unprecedented crisis.  I am awed and inspired by your dedication and commitment to our members, to our union, and to our two great countries.  True leaders are defined not by how they perform in the best of times, but rather by how they lead, respond, and react in the most trying and turbulent times.  Each and every one of you is a working-class warrior who makes us all proud.

I also want to thank all of our dedicated members who are following the guidance of public health officials, taking care of themselves and their families, checking in on neighbors, and doing their part to keep us all healthy and safe.  Never before in my life have I seen such a clear demonstration of the goodness and greatness of all our members than I have witnessed over the past few months.  I have never felt more honored and humbled to be your General President than I do right now.

In the 117 years since a small group of hod carriers and building laborers came together to organize our union, we have been through war and peace, boom and bust, good times and bad.  We have survived the Great Depression, two World Wars, and many economic downturns.  Through it all, we have persevered because of our solidarity, our unity, and our strength.  No one member of LIUNA ever stands alone; each and every one of us has an army of 500,000 strong, proud, and united LIUNA brothers and sisters standing by our side.

Despite the challenges and hardships we are facing, I am convinced that LIUNA will emerge from this with a renewed and uncompromising commitment to fight for justice, honor, and strength for all workers.

I thank you and your families for your continued faith in, and loyalty to, our great International Union.  May you continue to always Feel the Power, Use the Power, and Be the Power.

List of Pre-Identified Break Locations

We understand the limited availability of locations to take a break 10-7 and have been working with various Departments to try and make identify facilities where our members can go to take their breaks. Below is a list of Pre-determined break locations supplied to the Union by DSS. There of course may be more and more added in the future, we will keep you up to date as that information changes. Your Union is working to get all of us through this very challenging and difficult time, we appreciate your continued hard work and ask all of you to stay safe out there.




COVID-19 Update on Essential Services and Possible Draw Downs (Pay)

Update from last nights meeting with the City of Chicago. 

As early as tomorrow the City will begin drawing down its services. As of right now, all of our members at the City work in Departments that are providing “essential services”. We are being told that even those Departments considered “essential” may see a draw down of employees very soon.

Some members may be ordered to “tele-work”, or work from home, but all of our members will be paid their normal salary, and keep their benefits, during this temporary draw down of services.

We are working with the City to ensure this draw down is as orderly as possible, and protects our members while ensuring we can continue to safely provide the services necessary to get the City through this pandemic.

Again, any employees told to stay home during this temporary draw down will be paid and keep their benefits.


To combat the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and ensure that City employees and their dependents have access to critical medical care, the City will make available new resources. These resources are available to you and your dependents effective immediately.


City employees and their dependents enrolled in the City’s Healthcare Plans will have access to Telehealth services.

Telehealth visits currently include 2-way, live interactive telephone communication and digital video consultations, which can allow concerned members to connect with their physicians while reducing the risk of exposure to contagious viruses or further illness.

The coverage for these services is temporary and will end on December 31, 2020 or the date the state of emergency declaration by the State of Illinois expires (if earlier).

Telehealth services will only be covered as follows:

  • When all other Plan provisions are met, including medical necessity, and
  • When provided in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) will allow all medical providers that are eligible to bill for Telehealth services to do so for COVID-19 or other eligible claims for other diagnoses. Plan co-pays and deductibles would apply should an employee and/or his/her dependents elect to use Telehealth services.


As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we understand you may have concerns about accessing prescription medications – especially if you or loved ones have a chronic or complex condition. CVS Caremark®is taking steps to protect your access to medication and we encourage you to refill maintenance medications with a 90-day supply or up to the plan maximum.

Here is some additional information about your CVS Caremark pharmacy benefits we hope is useful to you. You may take advantage of:

Relaxed refill restrictions. We are temporarily waiving early refill limits on 30-day prescriptions for maintenance medications at any in-network pharmacy. You can now fill maintenance medication prescriptions ahead of schedule. Restrictions apply (e.g. opioid prescriptions).

Free home delivery. CVS Pharmacy® has waived charges for home delivery of all prescription medications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages people at higher risk for COVID-19 complications to stay at home as much as possible, so this convenient option can help you avoid coming to the pharmacy for refills or new maintenance prescriptions. As always, there is no charge for delivery of prescriptions filled by CVS Caremark Mail Service pharmacy, when you choose mail. If you have any questions contact CVS/Caremark Customer Service line at 1-866-748-0028.

COVID-19 Update for DSS

Your Union has been working with DSS to ensure the health and safety of our members since the announcement of the severity of the COVID-19 virus. In an effort to address some of the repeated concerns of the Union, DSS will be sending the below information out to the Grids today. We asked DSS to address the lack of places to eat, the use of personal vehicles, 10/7’s and the crowded swipe rooms.

Below is the information being sent to all Divisions by DSS.

  1. For those employees that are coming to work, let’s encourage them to bring their lunch to work. Many locations that our employees would frequent are no longer accessible.
  2. If approached, you can allow that employee to drive their own vehicle to a check point. they are still expected to swipe in and out, sign in and out at the district. If the vehicle is the clean and safe place they want to eat, we should allow that. We should monitor any employee driving to make sure they are not abusing this privilege.
  3. In regards to 10-7 breaks, we want to be mindful that it may take a little bit longer to find somewhere to use the restroom.
  4. We should allow all persons the opportunity to separate themselves from a crowd by sitting in their vehicles until it’s time to swipe in or out.

A Message from the LABF



The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus known as COVID-19. The United States Secretary of Health and Human Services declared COVID-19 presents a public health emergency and Governor Pritzker issued a disaster proclamation in response to COVID-19.

Since COVID-10 has been detected in numerous locations in Illinois including Chicago the LABF is taking the following steps to protect the safety, health and wellbeing of our members and employees:

– Cancelling all in person appointments

– Requesting members and other stakeholders to NOT visit the LABF offices

– Requiring employees who are sick to remain at home

– Providing hand sanitizer throughout the LABF offices

– Encouraging members and employees to follow the CDC recommended measures to protect yourself and others (visit http://www.CDC.gov for more information)

If you have an existing scheduled appointment, and have not heard from the LABF, please contact the LABF to determine if the appointment can be handled over the phone or if your appointment will need to be rescheduled. The LABF can be contacted by phone, fax, or email. Contact information follows:

– Phone number: (312) 236-2065

– Fax number: (312) 236-0574

– Email address: http://www.BenefitServices@LABFChicago.org

Please be assured that all benefit payments will continue to be paid in a timely manner.

And, currently the LABF offices will remain open for business; however, the LABF will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as it develops. Your understanding and patience are much appreciated during this unfortunate and rapidly evolving worldwide health emergency and we hope that you and your family remain healthy.


City of Chicago Employee COVID-19 update.

We met with the Mayor’s Office yesterday evening to further discuss the suggestions we made to them earlier this week. As a result, they have rolled out several temporary policies today. These policies should ease the burden on those directly affected by COVID-19, and on those doing their best to slow the virus’ spread.

Below is a brief outline of what’s currently in place.

For employees who are diagnosed with COVID-19 or directed by their medical provider to isolate themselves because they’ve exhibited symptoms, there will be paid leave (in addition to any time you currently have on the books)

For employees who must be absent due to a quarantine order from their medical provider (even though they may not presently have any symptoms), there will also be paid leave (in addition to any time you currently have on the books)

In both of these situations, the paid leave is in addition to any paid time off the employee has or will have on the books.

Department Heads will be allowed to advance vacation/sick days to employees who are staying at home because of some other, non-COVID-19 illness or because of their child’s school closure. If that employee has already used up their 2020 vacation time and any comp time they may have, this paid leave can come out of an employee’s 2021 bank. If you do not want to use your vacation time, just apply for FMLA to make sure the absences are excused.

The City has temporarily stop using biometric screening (hand swipes). Instead, they’ll require employees to swipe their ID cards and then “waive” their hand (your id or similiar item works also) over the prongs. This will register the employee as present and at work.

This is a continuously evolving situation, and we will continue to do our best to stay on top of it. These are positive steps for our members and should significantly aid in slowing the spread of the virus and keeping our members and their families as healthy as possible.

As always, we encourage our members to contact us with any questions or issues you may have.

LiUNA Apprenticeship Programs Protected


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Your advocacy for LIUNA apprenticeship programs made a difference. The Department of Labor’s decision on IRAPs validated what you and your brothers and sisters already know, union registered apprenticeship programs are the gold standard. The final rule on apprenticeship ensures that LIUNA and the building trades first-class, cutting edge apprenticeship programs will continue to be the construction industry standard bearer.

This victory would not have happened without the extraordinary activism of LIUNA members in defense of our training and apprenticeship programs. The more than 88,000 comments submitted by our members is a testament to LIUNA’s solidarity, strength, and activism.

LIUNA thanks those in the Administration who supported  us and we are grateful for the many Members of Congress, from both sides of the aisle, who stood with us and weighed in with the Department of Labor to protect LIUNA apprenticeships. We will not forget their efforts.

We won this battle and we will be ready for whatever comes next. Whether it’s an attack on our wages, pensions, or our right to collectively bargain, we must remain vigilant.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I want to express our pride and our thanks for your commitment, your solidarity, and your determination. With the half-million strong, proud, and united brothers and sisters of LIUNA, there is nothing we can’t do.

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

Get the Facts: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) What is Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

Coronavirus Disease 2019, or COVID-19, is a respiratory disease

What is the health risk from COVID-19 in Chicago?

The immediate health risk to the general public from COVID-19 in Chicago remains low at this time. There is no need at this point for people in Chicago to wear masks or cancel events, for example. CDPH is monitoring the situation carefully, with CDC, and will rapidly communicate any changes in this guidance.

Nationally, people in communities with ongoing community spread are at elevated though still relatively low risk of exposure. Healthcare workers caring for patients with COVID-19, close contacts of persons with COVID-19, and travelers returning from affected international locations where community spread is occurring also are at elevated risk of exposure.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms can include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. In confirmed COVID-19 cases, illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death. Most cases of COVID-19 result in mild illness. To date, children also seem less likely to become ill. But people who are older and who have other health conditions are more likely to have serious illness. CDC reports that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

How does the virus spread?

Although the virus that causes COVID-19 probably emerged from an animal source, it is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).


What is the treatment for COVID-19?

There is no specific medicine to treat

at this time, though studies are underway. People with

receive supportive care from a health care professional. Supportive care means care to help relieve symptoms; for example, medicine to bring down fevers, or oxygen if a patient’s oxygen level is low.


Is there a vaccine?

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. Development is underway but will likely take a year or more. The best way to prevent infection and transmission is to practice everyday preventative actions such as washing your hands often and staying home when sick.

How can I protect myself from COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases?

As with any respiratory virus, you can protect yourself and others by taking everyday common sense actions:

  •   Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  •   Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  •   Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  •   Stay home when you are sick.
  •   Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  •   Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. At this time, no special sanitizing processes beyond routine cleaning are necessary or recommended to slow the spread of respiratory illness.

Remember that it’s also flu and respiratory disease season and CDPH recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed. See http://www.chicago.gov/flu.

What are CDPH’s recommendations for using a face mask?

CDPH does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Face masks can be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone with suspected COVID-19 in close settings.


What can travelers do to protect themselves and others?

CDPH strongly recommends avoiding travel to countries with level 3 travel notices, including layovers at airports, because there is widespread sustained transmission of COVID-19 in these countries and the risk of acquiring the virus is high. Older adults and those with chronic medical conditions should also consider postponing travel to destinations with level 2 travel notices. The latest travel notices are available on CDC’s COVID-19 web page for travelers.

What if I recently traveled to an area affected by COVID-19?

Travelers returning from any country with a Travel Alert Level 3 should stay home and monitor their health for 14 days after leaving the country with the travel alert. Please follow instructions during this time. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to try to slow the spread of this virus.

  •   Do not go to school or work. Absences for this purpose should be excused and alternate arrangements should be made for teleworking or online school assignments if possible.
  •   Take your temperature with a thermometer 2 times a day and watch your health.
  •   If you develop a fever (100.4F/38C) or cough, seek medical care right away. Call ahead before going to a doctor’s office or emergency room. Tell them your symptoms and that you were in an affected area. You can also call CDPH at 312-746-7425 (SICK) during business hours. After hours call 311 and request to speak to the Medical

Director on call. In the case of a medical emergency, call 911.

Travelers returning from any country with a Travel Alert Level 2 should monitor their health for 14 days but do not need to limit their movement or activity. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms, contact your healthcare provider, and tell them about your symptoms and your recent travel to an area with community spread of COVID-19.
