The powerful Chicago local has a bargaining committee led by secretary  treasurer Juan Campos and other officers, and includes a number of rank and file stewards and two retirees as well.

The initial union and company proposals are posted on the local's website. These proposals will be changed and supplemented as bargaining progresses.
