Honoring Our Veterans
The Local One Retirees Club and Local One have joined together to honor members of Local One who served in the Armed Forces of our country with a permanent memorial listing their names to be displayed at the Local One Union Hall.
This effort will be totally funded by voluntary contributions by those who wish to honor our Veterans. Anyone wishing to contribute can write a check to Local #6 Veterans Memorial and send it to Retirees Club, . Box 7957, Orland Park IL. 65967-7957.
We are seeking Veterans names, both past and present, which war he/she served in, from World War One to the present and their service branch.
Contributions are not necessary to submit a Veterans name.
Many of our Veterans are gone, so it’s up to relatives and friends to remember them. We know memories are faulty, but we would rather have a wrong name, then miss one. We ask that names and contributions be submitted as soon as possible.
Names can be submitted in the following ways:
As reported in Mike Sneed’s column last week, a member of our union, Iron Workers Local 6, recently affixed a Mitt Romney banner to an antenna atop the Willis Tower. Just to be clear, while we respect and support every union member’s right — and every American’s right — to support the candidate of their choice, Iron Workers Local 6 has formally endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election.
President Obama has taken bold action to put people back to work and get the economy back on track. He passed an economic stimulus package that included $95 billion for roads, bridges, transit, clean water and building construction and created more than million jobs. He overturned the Bush administration’s ban on Project Labor Agreements, which ensure that federal projects are completed on time and under budget. And President Obama has fought to protect workers, signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and doubling the number of prevailing-wage complaint investigations by his administration.
