“Ours is the skill that keeps the Nation moving forward!”
IAM Mechanics Union Local 701 members working at M&K Truck Centers in Alsip (Laborforce) are now on strike! As of November 1, 2023, 58 members employed at M&K are striking for a fair contract and to keep their Union benefits, which they have enjoyed in previous Agreements. These 58 members have unanimously rejected the Company’s offer.
Please show your support to these striking members! Stop by and visit them as they fight for a fair contract!
They are located at 5300 W Plattner Dr, Alsip, IL 60803. Showing your support will help send a message to the Employer to get back to the table and bargain a fair contract!
CALL TO ACTION!!! ALL LOCAL 701 MEMBERS!!

The attack on HB3940 continues! Please send a message to your State Senators and Representatives urging them to remember the importance of HB3940 and how overwhelmingly in favor they voted to fix our industry’s pay issue.
