Teamsters in Chicago Local 705 will vote this week on a proposal made by the union's leadership to use between one to two million dollars of the strike fund to extend health care benefits to members laid off as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Members are asked to visit Teamster City (1645 W. Jackson, Chicago) through Saturday, April 11. Voting will be conducted on the 7th Floor at the outer office cage. Local 705 represents thousands of UPS Teamsters, but also thousands of other Teamsters, some of whom face probable layoffs as the crisis unfolds.
