Local 916 Supports Investing in Public Infrastructure
Did you know that the last time Illinois approved a major capital funding program was in early 2009? Over the past 10 years Illinois' public infrastructure continues to deteriorate and the time for funding a robust capital program is long overdue. Teamsters Local 916 is joining many organizations across the State, including Teamsters Joint Council 25, in advocating for a capital program this year. In an effort to advocate for and support the institution of an infrastructure program, Teamsters in Illinois are partnering with the Transportation for Illinois Coalition (TFIC) to erase awarenesses among policymakers.
