CHICAGO (CBS) — Skyway maintenance workers are on strike, and no one appears to be speeding back to the bargaining table.
The strike began at 7 a.m. Tuesday, with pickets stationed outside of Skyway Concession’s Michigan Avenue office. Operations on the Skyway were normal.
The Skyway Concession Company LLC claims its 11 maintenance workers were misled into striking and about agreement terms set since June. Operating Engineers Local 150 spokesman Ed Maher said the workers have had no contract since November and if anyone’s being misleading, it’s the Skyway, WBBM’s Bob Roberts reports.
