Revere Electric Drivers Vote Unanimously to Join Local 710

Teamster Organizing Team Secures New Members Amidst Anti-Union Campaign

Delivery Drivers at Revere Electric in Mokena, Ill. voted unanimously to join Teamsters Local 710 on August 4.

The Local’s newest members sought out representation from the hall’s experienced staff to gain a voice in their workplace. The Business Agents at Local 710 have been working diligently with the organizing department at Teamsters Joint Council 25 to help these workers become a part of the union.

I want to thank the organizing team at the Joint Council and our agents on securing this important win. I know our experience in negotiating strong Teamster contracts will serve our new members well as we head to the bargaining table.

Local 710 Trustee

The Local 710 team was faced with an anti-union campaign from the company, but
ultimately prevailed through continued contact and holding several informational meetings with the entire unit.

The drivers have met for multiple contract proposal meetings to discuss the top issues in the workplace and determine a bargaining plan. Negotiations are scheduled to begin in September.

Teamsters Local 710 is an affiliate of Teamsters Joint Council 25, America’s premier labor union for Chicago, Illinois and Indiana.
