Identity Theft Fraud Alert
This information is provided by:
Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters

Over the past few days, our union attorney has received numerous telephone calls from members stating that someone has wrongfully filed an unemployment claim on their behalf at the Illinois Department of Employment Security.

We wanted to make sure you were aware so you can protect yourself. Attorney Nicholas Cortesi advises that any member who runs into this situation should treat it as identity theft and do the following:

File a report at your local police department

File an online complaint with the Illinois Department of Employment Security:

File an online complaint with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office:

File an online complaint with the Federal Trade Commission:

Sign-up with a credit monitoring service such as Identity-IQ or Life-Lock to monitor their credit reports/scores.

If you have additional questions, please contact Union Legal Services attorney Nicholas J. Cortesi at 877-694-2663.

HO HO Home Building for the Holidays
November 21, 2019

The RCEC and RHBA is encouraging the next generation of tradespeople to enrolled in the building program in District 211, including students attending Conant, Fremd, Hoffman Estates, Palatine, and Schaumburg high school 

 As we gather and rejoice with friends during the holidays, make the season merry for these aspiring young builders. A small gift—work gloves, a winter hat, sweatshirt, or bright-colored long-sleeve safety shirt—will make a huge difference during this cold weather season. In addition to warm work attire, donations to help towards the costs of new work boots, program t-shirts and tools, as well as gift cards to Walmart, Target, & Aldi are also appreciated. .
