Leaders Call on CTA to Require New Rail Car Makers to

 detail future Local Jobs

 

Tribune photo illustration

     Jorge Ramirez,  President of the Chicago labor Federation, delivered a letter to

 the Chicago transit authority yesterday signed by a coalition of Union and community leaders, asking for an American jobs plan to be Incorporated into the CTA’s pending

$2 billion purchase of railcars. The local union leaders signing on included IBEW

and IAM as well as the building trades Council. We also had a number of faith and community leaders sign-on. The national organization Green for all – which is a core partner in the campaign – helped us with the outreach. We got an excellent

Chicago Tribune article on the letter.
