One of the most influential men in the Chicago and Illinois Firefighter Labor Movement is preparing to pass away from cancer, Mike Lass of the IAFF. We are having a banquet to honor his life and achievements on June 27th at Joliet Country Club. We have a video tribute that really shows how Mike Lass and J. Dale Berry impacted our city and union, Local 2 during the 1980 strike on the CFD Blog. Let's honor and remember the men that made our cities and jobs safer.
