Joint Statement from Mayor-elect Lightfoot and CFL President Bob Reiter

April 4, 2019

 

Chicago Federation of Labor President Bob Reiter met with Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot yesterday. Afterwards, the two released a joint statement:

“We made this meeting a priority in the first week of the transition because of the importance of organized labor to working families across the city. We discussed shared priorities, including raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2021, defending collective bargaining rights, and ensuring scheduling protections for Chicago workers. This conversation was just the beginning, and we’re looking forward to meeting again and working closely together to build a Chicago that works for everyone.”
