Local 727 Continues to Fight CDT’s Unlawful Actions

| April 25, 2017

In January, Local 727 filed unfair labor practice charges against Cook-DuPage Transportation (CDT) for, among other things, the company’s violation of the settlement agreement which mandated that drivers were to be paid the van wage rate instead of the car rate. Yet CDT unlawfully continued to pay drivers the car rate after the agreement was signed and made unilateral changes without bargaining with the union.

Region 13 of the National Labor Relations Board deferred several of the charges and found merit with the charge the union filed contesting CDT’s refusal to provide information.

“The NLRB is sending a direct message to all companies like CDT who mistakenly believe they can circumvent labor laws,” said John Coli, Jr., President of Local 727. “We will stand up to any company who violates these laws which protect our hardworking union members.”

There are currently six arbitrations and 11 grievances pending against CDT.

The NLRB also issued a formal notice that the paratransit company must post in the driver and dispatcher break rooms.

Nothing in this article should be read as the union’s waiver of any legal argument, position or additional grievance. The union does not forfeit its right to make any and all supplemental arguments.
