Chicago Elevator Constructors Celebrate 125 Years & Look Forward to 125 More

International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) Local 2 recently hosted its anniversary gala at the Westin Chicago Northwest. Elevator constructors, company representatives from Otis, TK Elevator, and Cabworks Custom Elevators, distinguished retirees, and others gathered to celebrate 125 remarkable years.

Chicago elevator constructors are the individuals who helped shape – and today, maintain – one of the world’s most extraordinary skylines. The Chicago Charter of the International Union of Elevator Constructors since March 12, 1897, today Local 2 proudly represents more than 1,300 members.

IUEC Local 2’s members are some of the most respected men and women in the industry. They are well known for working together to fight for the working people of Illinois. What’s more, they understand the importance of serving one’s community – and demonstrate their commitment to making the world a better place by hosting an annual golf outing to fund diabetes research and supporting Chicago-based nonprofit Toy Box Connection.
