Chicago Cubs Sign Off WGN-TV For The Final Time After 72 Years

​WGN-TV and the Chicago Cubs have been synonymous for the last seven decades. This season marked the end of the “free over-the-air” telecasts of Cubs baseball however as the team will launch its own sports network beginning 2020.

The relationship between the Cubs and WGN was the longest-running partnership in sports broadcasting anywhere in the world, dating back to the dawn of TV.

To honor the men and women of WGN who brought viewers the sights and sounds of Wrigley Field for so long, the Cubs hosted WGN Day at the ballpark and invited the crew members to the field for pregame festivities - including the first pitch thrown out by veteran Local 1220 member Joe Pausback.

​​NEW Fall 2019 Dues Policy

Effective immediately, Local 1220 will be aggressively collecting on all accounts with back dues of $500 or more. Too many of our members are carrying large balances that threaten the health of the Local.

The annual Holiday party has been cancelled. A vast majority of our training has been cancelled. We're cutting back on all non-essential travel and conferences. We can't, however, cut our way to a solution.

Beginning in the 4th quarter of 2019, members will have the choice of paying the balance immediately, or going on Dues Checkoff for a fixed monthly dollar amount until the balance is paid off.

Dues Checkoff allows more flexibility for our members to pay off their debts over time. If you're not on Dues Checkoff now, please consider this option to avoid the calls and notices to your employer.
