Local 727 Files Grievance Over CDT’s Refusal to Pay Out Unused Vacation/Sick Time to Separated Employees

| March 22, 2019

Teamsters Local 727 recently filed a grievance against Cook DuPage Transportation Co., Inc., when it learned the Company has refused to pay out several members’ unused vacation and sick/personal time following their separation of employment from CDT.

The CDT collective bargaining agreement specifies that all owed wages, accrued vacation days, and accrued sick/personal days are to be paid out on the next scheduled pay period after the employee’s separation from the Company.

“Whether it’s paid at the time a member uses their vacation, sick, or personal time or at the time an employee separates from the Company, CDT has a legal obligation to pay out all accrued vacation and sick/personal time.  For them to refuse is unlawful,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.

While Local 727 continues to demand CDT’s compliance with the collective bargaining agreement and state law, members are strongly encouraged to file individual wage claims with the Illinois Department of Labor.  Wage claims must be filed by the affected individual and cannot be submitted by the Union on your behalf.  For more information on filing a claim, click here.

Members with questions should contact Business Representative Donnie Von Moore at (773) 403-1032 or [email protected].
