Saturday Make Up Day Form
Contractors covered under the building provisions of the BAC, CAICA, CASA, CAWGC, FVGCA, GLCA, MCA, and/or MWCC collective bargaining agreements may be eligible to use Saturday as a make-up day. 

During the period between April 1 and November 30, no more than once per month, one designated Saturday may be used as make-up day, due to inclement weather, at straight time while tending masons; provided, however, that after forty (40) hours have been worked by any given employee, time and one-half must be paid to that employee.

The request for authorization of a Saturday Make-up Day form can be found here: http://www.liunachicago.org/contractors/request-saturday-makeup

Contractors must notify the Chicago Laborers’ District Council, by no later than 4:00 PM on the Friday preceding the make-up day, using the form provided, specifying the date and location of the make-up work to be performed and the employees working.  An Employer who violates this section shall pay as a penalty double time for all hours worked.

The Chicago Laborers’ District Council will email a response to your request.

Occupied Space Shift Form
Contractors covered under the building provisions of the BAC, CAICA, CAWGC, FVGCA, GLCA, MCA, and/or MWCC collective bargaining agreements may be eligible to exercise an Occupied Space Shift.

When work to be performed in occupied buildings is of such a nature that it is not appropriate or practical during the regular work day, such as renovation, alteration and modernization, the starting and quitting times of any shift, including day work, may be changed for all or any portion of a particular job, provided:

  • All employees working this shift must receive eight (8) hours pay for seven (7) hours worked. 
  • Laborers working through lunch on this shift must be compensated one additional hour of pay in addition to pay for all hours worked. 
  • Any and all work in excess of seven (7) hours must be paid at a rate of double time. 
  • The adjusted shift runs a minimum of three consecutive days. 

An Employer who violates the requirements for this shift shall pay as a penalty double time for all hours worked.

The Chicago Laborers’ District Council will email a response to your request.  All preliminarily approved requests will be forwarded to the appropriate Local Union.  The Local Union will then contact the Contractor to schedule the pre-job conference and the previously submitted form will be sent back to the Contractor with a final determination.  A pre-job conference must take place prior to utilization of the adjusted shift.
