    Teamsters District Council 4 is made up of hard-working men and women throughout the state of Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Iowa, we are an affiliation of members of  Local 458M and Local 568M, and now Local 518M. Our members cover many sections of our industry, and we believe our strength is found in our diversity. 

    Our Union has been active for over 100 years in the Chicagoland area and we are proud of our history and knowledge in the Graphic Industry.  Having the International Brotherhood of Teamsters behind us we work to negotiate the best contracts possible and to provide the strongest day-to-day union representation for our members.

    It is with much sadness we are informing all our members that our Retired Local 458M Officer, Mr. Bill Ruby passed away this morning.

    Mr. Ruby began his printing career at Wallace Press back in 1961.  He was the instructor for Litho Stripping at ‘The Chicago Graphic Arts Institute’ for many years.  He was elected as a Business Representative of Local 458M in January of 1994 and served until his retirement in December of 2001.

    Mr. Bill Ruby has been part of the Fishing Party Committee of Local 458M as their chairman since the early '60s until 2018.  You can always find him at the bar with a beer in hand and a story to tell.   He was known for his witty sense of humor and his boisterous laughter.

    Local 458M wishes to extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.  The family is asking for privacy at this time, so please respect their wishes and do not contact them. 

     Just raise a beer in his name!

    College NOT for you?

    In the past, we were taught that you could only earn a livable wage if you went to college, but that is not always true. A union job offers a livable wage with affordable health and welfare benefits and a pension you can look forward to when you get to an age when you are done working.  Some of our employers offer Entry-level positions and you are able to move up when you are in the shop.
