Local 710 Retains Business at Cassen’s Aurora, Protects Fourty Jobs

A Letter From Local 710 Business Agent Anthony Lamy

April 8, 2016

ALL CASSENS’ DRIVERS ON THE AURORA SENIORITY BOARD

ATTENTION MEMBERS:

In spite of Cassen’s request for a pay reduction for all loads from the Elwood Rail Facility of 4.9%, we retained the business.

The Hyundai/Kia traffic was up for bid and Cassen’s was successful in winning over our non-union competition without the 4.9% give back.

Failure to keep this traffic would have resulted in about a 40 driver layoff.

CONGRATULATIONS AURORA DRIVERS!

In Solidarity,
