Chicago Local 705 Contract Negotiations

August 1, 2008: Little progress has been made in negotiations for a new contract covering freight Teamsters in Local 705. Members overwhelmingly passed a strike authorization vote and lent their support to the bargaining committee.

However representatives for Yellow, Roadway, Holland, and ABF are stonewalling the union. The next negotiating sessions are scheduled for August 5 and 7. Updates are posted at www.teamsterslocal705.org.
