      Laborers Local 362 is sponsoring an Impact Life blood drive, 7 – 11:30 a.m., Saturday, January 22, at the union’s hall, 2012 Fox Creek Road, Bloomington.

      All union members, family and friends are welcome to sign up.  An on-line link to sign up is at   If one is unable to access the link, call 309-828-4368 during regular office hours for a placement.

      January is a traditionally low month for blood donations and the AFL-CIO emphasizes union blood drives during this month to make the difference.  One donation can aid up to four individuals. 

      In the tangled multinational web we currently inhabit, an elaborate scheme that involved Chinese, Spanish and Mexican firms employing Mexican nationals at the Rivian electric vehicle plant in Normal spurred investigation by Illinois Attorney General (AG) Kwame Raoul and the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL).  The result was almost $400,000 in a wage and penalty settlement.

      Want a union?  48 percent of Americans say they would join if given the chance, 65 percent support unions, the highest percentage in years. So why don’t people join?  Because joining a union meets a legal onslaught from management fear tactics, firings and retribution, with the 1935 National Labor Relations Act too weak to face that onslaught.

      McLean County union volunteers were out in force during December, helping brighten the holidays with the 39th annual Children’s Christmas Party for low-income families and assisting the Salvation Army with food and toy distributions.

      For the first time in over forty years, the Bloomington & Normal Trades & Labor Assembly (BNTL) (AFL-CIO) has new leadership.  Illinois Organizers Union, TNG-CWA Local 34071 member Adam Heenan, 38, is now the President.  Adam works as an Illinois Federation of Teachers Field Service Director, representing IFT Locals from Pekin to Champaign.

      A vigilant member with strong union backing resulted in a $910,583.79 Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) prevailing wage violation against Global Wind Services U.S. (GWS) of Chicago.  One of the largest settlements in IDOL history. 157 workers received checks for wages due.

      WEEK-TV did a live remote from the 2021 Bloomington & Normal Trades & Labor Assembly Workers Memorial Day service on April 28 at Laborers Local 362 hall.  You can view it here at:
