The strike was resolved this week and new contracts between the unions and contractors have been signed and are in effect. The contractor resumed work this week!

The contractor began storm and sanitary spot repairs and structure replacements on Bonnie Glen. This work will continue for the next few days, and then the contractor will move to Grove Street. Curb and gutter removal and replacement should commence next week. We have not yet received a schedule for this concrete work, but once I know it, I will update!

Strike Continues

As of this morning, the strike continues. The Unions and the Contracting Companies are still in negotiations and have not yet reached an agreement. It is our understanding that the next scheduled meeting is set for Monday, July 19.

We continue to ask for your patience and understanding during this time. We are continuing to monitor each construction site so that they remain safe to the general public.

As stated below, please do not hesitate to contact the Village Project Manager or the Capital Projects Department at (847) 998-9500.

Dear Resident:

Thank you for your ongoing patience during the Village construction project adjacent to your home. At this time, the Village has been notified that Chicagoland Construction Labor Unions are going on strike. The conflict is between the Contracting Companies and the Unions, not involving the Village.

Work has therefore been temporarily shut down on your street. We are insuring that all construction sites are safe to the general public and will continue to actively monitor each site.

If any issues arise, or if you should have any questions, please contact the Village Project Manager or the Capital Projects Department at (847) 998-9500.

As of today, we do not have any information on how long this strike could last. We will inform you when this issue is resolved and work will resume.

Thank you again for your patience while this matter is resolved.
