City of Chicago Teamsters 700 Vote. Give leadership strike rights

Union 700 Teamsters Vote.jpg The City of Chicago Teamsters Local 700 will allow their leaders to strike if the need arises. The final tally is from about 2000 ballots sent out. The good men and ladies voted 753 yes to authorize leadership the ability to strike if needed. 248 voted no because they do not wear the pants or dresses at home, and 7 ballots were considered spoiled. This is the unofficial tally as of a few hours ago. When you give men and women the ability to make up their own mind and not cave-in to bully demands like other unions, you have freedom. Time to follow in the footsteps of Chicago Teamsters. Photo by Patrick McDonough
