Dear Sister and Brother Engineers,

Next Tuesday November 4, 2014 is a critical election here in the State of Illinois. Don’t let anyone fool you, Illinois is not the worst State. Only to the rich and anti-labor/union type like Bruce Rauner its the worst State because here in Illinois we do not have the “Right to Work” laws imposed by the anti-labor movement. While the term “Right to Work” sounds like its pro labor in reality it is the OPPOSITE , the law robs you the rights to to Unionize and negotiate fair wages. Bruce Rauner would love to enact this and I guarantee you if he is elected, all of our advances will be rolled back and your standard of lining will be reduced before his term ends. Rauner would not even care if you are employed or not, its all about money and reducing his own taxes.

Do not believe Bruce Rauner’s mis-leading Ads. The reason he is being endorsed by the only paper that was pro-labor, the Sun Times, because the corporate bosses were told to endorse him due to the fact he has financial interests in the Sun Times. As I have always said “Follow the Money”. Why else would the Sun Times after all these years of not endorsing candidates come out and endorse this anti labor Billionaire.

Please vote and make sure it’s for Pat Quinn for Governor. Governor Quinn has I.U.O.E. Local 143-143b’s support and we are endorsing him for Governor. Our future depends on it.


William E. Iacullo, President

Please note, the new evaluation booklet you received yesterday was part of our negotiations with CPS as outlined in our contract. It is also part of an in service training you are to receive either individually or as group from your FM and or LFM. If you have not been in serviced, I am sure it will be occurring soon. If by  the end of next week you have not received this training please let me know via email, and give me the FM’s name and your school as well as the LFM’s name. All Fm’s and LFM’s were trained in this new process. Your Vice President Denis Lechowicz and my self attended those same training sessions, so we both heard everything that your FM and LFM were trained  about in this new process.
