The Trib is under attack!
We need to stand up and help one of our biggest staples of Chicagoan Life. One of the biggest destroyers of Newspapers has its eye on our friend. Alden Global Capital takes over Newspapers and slowly breaks them apart by offering the community poor quality of information, increasing subscription costs, and reducing staff. Join us at our Solidarity Rally! with all our Labor Union Brothers and Sisters
On Saturday, May 15th at the Freedom Center located at 560 West Grand Ave in Chicago IL at 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Let’s show Alden Global Capital that the Tribune is not just a simple Newspaper but its part of Chicago and we will always rally for our family!

However, because the Fund pays the BCBS fees, and may possess claims against BCBS that it will evaluate and possibly pursue, individuals may conclude they don't need to take further action. www.BCBSsettlement.com can provide additional information.
