January 1, 2019 - Ongoing
Illinois AFL-CIO Brick Paver Sales for Plaza Renovation

Hosted by Illinois AFL-CIO

Illinois AFL-CIO, 534 S. Second Street, Springfield, IL

 

Due to the outstanding efforts of Dr. Carl Soderstrom over many years combined with the IL AFL-CIO’s front plaza being in need of repairs, the IL AFL-CIO will enter into a contract with Otto Baum construction to renovate the front of the IL AFL-CIO Building in Springfield.  The renovation will include a statue and memorial to Reuben Soderstrom who served as President of the Illinois AFL-CIO for forty years.  The statue and other work is being donated by Dr. Carl Soderstrom and a labor memorial area signifying important dates in Illinois Labor History will be part of the renovation.   We are hopeful the plaza renovation will be completed in in the Spring of 2019.  As part of the renovation, the Illinois AFL-CIO is offering engraved pavers as part of the plaza renovation.   These pavers will honor IL AFL-CIO affiliates and Union partners and will be a permanent reminder of your organization’s support of the Illinois Labor movement. Because this will be a Labor memorial plaza, pavers may also be dedicated to past and departed leaders of your organization who fought for many of the strong  labor laws we have in Illinois today

 

Cost of a 4X8 paver will be $400, an 8x8 paver will be $800 and a 27x27 column cap will be $5,000.  Placement of the pavers/column caps will be on a first come-first served basis.   Click here to download an order form.

 

Pavers/column caps can be reserved by completing the flier and mailing it with your payment to the Illinois AFL-CIO, 534 South Second, Suite 200, Springfield, IL  62701.   You may also return the form by email to terrip@ilafl-cio.org and an invoice for the amount will be sent to you.  If you have any questions, please call 217/544-4014.
