Local 710 ReaderLink Negotiations Move Forward

Teamsters Secure Several Improvements, Prepare for Economic Discussion

MOKENA, IL | The Teamsters Local 710 Bargaining Committee for ReaderLink met for two more rounds of negotiations with the company last week.

Teamsters worked through most of the non-economic and some economic proposals, securing multiple tentative agreements that improve working conditions and expand workplace protections.

We’re making great progress, and we’re gearing up to continue this momentum as we move more into economics. We’ve had a lot of healthy discussions with the company, and I think they are coming to understand our issues more clearly.

“We want you to help us so that we can help you,” Committee Member Rigo Almanza explained. “As Union members, we are proud of the work we do for ReaderLink.”

The Committees are scheduled to meet in Romeoville on Thursday where the company will present their economic response to the Union.
