Head of Fire Fighters Local 2 Joins the CFL Executive Board

On Monday, March 5, 2018, the Chicago Federation of Labor welcomed James T. Tracy III, President of the Chicago Firefighters Local 2, to the Executive Board.

Tracy began battling fires in 1996, at the age of 33, after serving in the United States Air Force. During his career as a fire fighter, Tracy was a union steward for the next 10 years, then served as a business agent for another six. He was elected President of Local 2 on May 1, 2017, and also serves on the grievance committee, political action committee and the legislative committee for Local 2.

Tracy comes from a long line of union members. Both his father and grandfather were members of Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 73.

“We are proud to welcome Jim to the Executive Board,” said CFL President Jorge Ramirez. “Being in the union is part of who he is, and I know that he will be a great addition.”
