Chicago Regional Council Calls for Congress to Pass Heroes Act

CRCC Executive Secretary-Treasurer Gary Perinar and Trade Show Representative Kevin McLaughlin joined Congresswoman-elect Marie Newman, the Chicago Federation of Labor, and our union partners at McCormick Place to highlight the pandemic’s extensive toll on the trade show industry and call for Congress to immediately pass the Heroes Act and give workers in Chicago and across the country the relief they deserve. The Regional Council normally has more than 1,000 members working at McCormick Place at any given time – more than any other trade union. Last month, the trustees representing the Chicago Welfare Fund voted again to extend healthcare Insurance eligibility to active Chicago Plan members through the quarter ending February 28, 2021.  #UnionStrong
