IAM Local 701 Auto Mechanics on Strike for Fair Wages, Work Schedule
More than 1,700 IAM-represented auto mechanics from across the Chicagoland area walked off the job at the strike of midnight Monday after a group of more than 130 Chicago dealerships refused to pay the workers a fair wage and provide them a fair work schedule. Members of IAMAW Automobile Mechanics Local 701, based in Carol Stream, IL, voted overwhelmingly, 1221 to 169, to strike the New Car Dealer Committee (NCDC) after reviewing the dealerships’ so-called last, best and final offer Sunday.
