Since 1937 Laborers’ Local 1001 has proudly represented City of Chicago Municipal employees, Foremen, and Supervisors employed in various City departments including Streets and Sanitation, Transportation, Aviation, Revenue, CFD, and Fleet and Facilities Management. The hard work and dedication of Local 1001 members ensures the City of Chicago remains a World Class City by keeping our alleys, streets, and airports clean and in good repair.

Local 1001 was founded on human diversity providing justice, dignity and honor through the strength and solidarity of our membership.

Laborers’ Local 1001 is an affiliate of LiUNA – Laborers’ International Union of North America – the most progressive, diverse and aggressive Union representing more than 600,000 members who work in Public service and the construction industry. LiUNA members are united through collective bargaining agreements which help us earn family-supporting wages, good benefits and the opportunity for advancement and better lives.
