Fair Workweek Ordinance
On Wednesday, July 24, the Chicago City Council passed the Fair Workweek Ordinance which legislates how employers schedule their employees. The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce was a member of the Work Your Way Coalition in an effort to advocate for our members which included testifying before the Workforce Development Committee and submitting letters of opposition to our local Alderman. After months of negotiation, the City Council approved an ordinance that the coalition members felt was more balanced for employers and employees.
