To all Locals, Officers, and Members:
Last night candidates endorsed by the Chicago Laborers’ District Council and our affiliated Local Unions won key races across Chicago, Suburban Cook, and the collar counties. Thank you to all the Laborers and family members who exercised their right to vote and a very special thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to help elect our union-endorsed candidates – candidates who are going to fight alongside us to protect our jobs, wages, health care and pensions.
Thanks to your efforts, Lori Lightfoot made history in a landslide victory against her opponent, winning all 50 wards in the City of Chicago. Make no mistake, YOU made her victory possible! For the first time ever, Laborers were able to sign up to volunteer online through the District Council. Laborers signed up for over 150 shifts and worked hundreds of volunteer hours during the past two weeks.
Countless other Laborers also worked tirelessly across our nine counties to help our endorsed candidates in Elgin, Woodstock, Des Plaines, Gardner and everywhere in between. Laborers phone banked, canvassed, attended rallies, put up yard signs, and assisted campaigns for candidates in numerous other ways. Thank you for showing up when called upon and putting in the hours necessary to pull off decisive victories for many of our endorsed candidates and for putting up an admirable fight for others.
None of these victories would have been possible without your support and volunteerism. We showed our candidates that LIUNA is strong when we stand together and fight for our rights!
Together, in solidarity and gratitude,
James P. Connolly Charles V. Lo Verde, III
