Hardest Working Voices in Labor

Hardest Working Voices in Labor

Gary Perinar, EST, Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, is committed to working in the best interests of our brotherhood, providing a foundation of support and wants the Carpenters Union to be recognized for their trade and crafts such as a millwright and the work that they perform every day – a union membership means more than having a job – We support our members in all that they do every day. Working together we help make the men and women of skilled labor stronger.

The Sun-Times series spotlights the people and professions that keep Chicago thriving.  Labor movement profiles are made possible by the Chicago Federation of Labor.
