The MTD is mourning the loss of Chicago and Western Lakes Port Council President James Sanfilippo who passed away in his sleep December 12.
Besides his duties with the PMC, Brother Sanfilippo was the president and business manager for Carpenters Local 1539, a post he held for 16 years. In addition, Brother Sanfilippo served as a delegate to the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters General Convention, the Chicago Federation of Labor, the Chicago & Cook County Building Trades and the Italian American Labor Council.
He represented the PMC at the MTD Convention in St. Louis during October.
“Jimmy was a very good union brother, who worked very hard to promote his Port Council,” stated MTD President Michael Sacco. “We will miss him.”
