Special Called Executive Board Meeting March 19, 2020

COVID-19 Main Page

Local 265 Members,

On Thursday March 19, 2020, the Executive Board of Local 265 held a special called meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This meeting was called to address several items related directly to COVID-19 and the possible inability of us to gather as a membership in the coming weeks or months.


Collective Bargaining Agreement Update

As you know, our current Building Trades Collective Bargaining Agreement is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2020. With the uncertainty of the coming weeks and/or months, the uncertainty of our ability to even meet as a large group in the coming weeks and/or months to ratify and allocate a new agreement, under the advisement of the Business Manager, the Executive Board voted to extend the current Collective Bargaining Agreement for 3 months. We have executed this 3-month extension with SMACNA Greater Chicago. The extended agreement will end on August 31, 2020.



John Daniel
President/Business Manager
