Auto mechanics strike at 56 dealerships all-around Chicago continues for a next working day

Hundreds of vehicle mechanics from 56 various Chicago and suburban dealerships were still on strike on Tuesday.

The 800 support experts, represented by Mechanics Neighborhood 701, walked off the work on Monday.

“Any of these dealerships that have these guys out front, there is no company occurring inside of,” reported Ronnie Gonzalez, the Business enterprise Representative for IAM Mechanics’ Regional 701.

Gonzalez reported 97-per cent of the union voted to reject the latest present and 99-p.c of the union users then voted to strike the picket line.

The strike is with the group termed the “New Auto Seller Committee of Chicago,” which represents roughly 56 dealerships. In a assertion, the team explained: “There are a lot of competition, not only other non-union sellers but also several non-union nationwide chains supplying automotive provider. The sellers very price their dedicated and proficient provider professionals, but lengthy-term career security can only be accomplished by protecting the competitiveness of all of our sellers.”

“It’s a pretty lucrative deal and addresses all of their concerns,” claimed Dave Sloan, president of the Chicago Car Trade Association. “Like any office, we need to be equipped to deal with staff who are not obtaining their occupation performed.”

Sloan mentioned that they are waiting around for the union to return to negotiations. A 2017 mechanics strike lasted about two months.
