  • At the April Union Meeting we will be allocating wages for the NECA and MCECA inside and residential agreements.  WAGEALLOCATION.pdf


  • MOURN FOR THE DEAD, FIGHT FOR THE LIVING!  Everyone is invited to show up to the Workers Memorial Day Ceremony at the White Oak Park Pavillion.   WMD.pdf.  Come to remember those who we have lost on the job over the years in McLean County.  The cause of worker safety created the labor movement, and the labor movement continues to fight for it, for all workers. All workers are encouraged to attend this important event.
