Hawthorne Racecourse Program Sellers Ratify New Contracts

| January 27, 2016

Teamsters Local 727 representatives secured new one-year contracts for program sellers at Hawthorne Racecourse and Hawthorne-Corliss OTB.

The contracts provide job security, protect worker rights, maintain current benefits and working conditions, and also include economic re-opener language in the event that gaming legislation is passed in Illinois.

“First and foremost, a strong Teamster contract provides job protection for our members,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “Fighting for their rights and working conditions is the union’s top priority.”

Corliss OTB program sellers also received raises, retroactive to Jan. 1.

Teamsters Local 727 represents dozens of Chicago-area racetrack workers, including program sellers, jockey valets, starters and parkers.
