Two Labor Leaders Honored by Peggy Browning Fund

Two Labor Leaders Honored by Peggy Browning Fund

Each year, the Peggy Browning Fund recognizes outstanding leaders across the country for their achievements on behalf of workers. In 2017, the Peggy Browning Fund’s Chicago Awards Reception honored James Connolly, Business Manager of Chicago Laborers’ District Council and CFL Board member, and Craig Rosenbaum, Esq., Executive Director & General Counsel for the Chicago News Guild.

Connolly has been a proud member of Laborers Local 4 for over 45 years. Every day, he proudly serves and fights to improve the lives of the 20,000 men and women who comprise the membership of the 15 LiUNA Locals throughout the nine counties of northeastern Illinois.

Craig Rosenbaum is a mentor and member of the Peggy Browning Fund’s Advisory Board. He has mentored well over 30 legal interns over the past 18 years—many of whom are practicing labor law today.
