Hall of Fame Banquet sold out

I have great news to share! The 22nd Annual East Central Iowa – Northwestern Illinois AFL-CIO Hall of Fame Banquet is officially sold out. All 50 tables have been reserved. Nearly 600 union members, their friends and families included, will be enjoying this very special evening along side community dignitaries and elected officials as we honor four remarkable Inductees as they enter the AFL-CIO Hall of Fame: Sister Wanda Sweat, UAW Local 865; Sister Vera Kelly, USW  Local 105; Brother John Honeycutt, UFCW Local 431; and Brother Tom Esparza, AFGE Local 15.

I’d also like to take the time to thank our event sponsors in advance of the banquet on Friday, October 11th at the Radisson Hotel in Downtown Davenport. The event begins at 6pm with a cocktail hour. Dinner and program begin at 7pm
