BOMA/Chicago Gains IDF Support in Fight to Protect Collective Bargaining

BOMA International’s Industry Defense Fund (IDF) Oversight Committee approved an application from BOMA/Chicago addressing a new city ordinance that violates the collective bargaining process and national labor policy. In July, the Chicago City Council passed a Fair Workweek Ordinance, one of the more comprehensive “predictive scheduling” laws in the nation. BOMA/Chicago disagreed with the added mandate of a waiver to get exemptions for employees covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement—in essence, the city council is preempting collective bargaining by creating a waiver that will become a negotiated item. As the collective bargaining agent for member buildings, BOMA/Chicago is committed to defending the ability to negotiate labor contracts in good faith and defeating politically driven interference in the process.

The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International is a federation of 88 BOMA U.S. associations and 18 international affiliates.

Its mission is to advance a vibrant commercial real estate industry through advocacy, influence and knowledge.​​
