Negotiations with union techs extend beyond contract deadline

August 2, 2013
About six hours before a 4-year deal lapsed, the bargaining teams for the Chicago-area New Car Dealers Committee and the union representing organized technicians on July 31 reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement.
The parties agreed to extend the current contract through Aug. 4, when technicians of Mechanics’ Union Local 701 will vote whether to ratify the new deal. Accordingly, all unionized dealerships would be in normal operation until Aug. 5, without threat of a strike.
