Auto mechanics union touts victory with 4-year deal
Sep 17, 2017 9:36 PM -
Union mechanics announced a new four-year deal Sunday that has ended a nearly seven-week strike against roughly 130 Chicago-area dealerships. The announcement follows recent predictions that the strike was nearing an end. The union had seen an influx of dealers looking to negotiate on their own. Sam Cicinelli, directing business representative for Automobile Mechanics Local 701, said late last week that half of the dealerships making up the New Car Dealer Committee had already signed interim deals.
