    Default Yorkville Lumber Supplier Strike

    Striking workers rally at Yorkville lumber supplier :: Beacon News :: Local News

    YORKVILLE — Union workers of lumber supplier Probuild, formerly known as F.E. Wheaton, rallied Thursday against alleged unfair labor practices, and to demand a more reasonable contract.

    About 60 workers, from warehouse employees and drivers to mill workers, have been without a contract since May, and on strike since July 28, according to Roger Kohler, principal officer for Teamsters Local 673.

    "We negotiated many, many times. But the men didn't want it and we walked out," Kohler said.

    The company had planned to replace all employees of the bargaining unit, according to Kohler, but as of Thursday morning that has not happened. The members of Local 673 are the only bargaining unit of the company.

    Teamsters strike at two ProBuild yards - Home Channel News

    Members of a Chicago-area Teamsters Union have gone on strike at ProBuild locations in Yorkville, and Wheaton, Ill., over health insurance, guaranteed hours, vacation pay, seniority rights and other issues, according to an article in Fox Valley Labor News.

    Teamsters Local 673 voted down ProBuild’s final offer on July 28 and set up a picket line on a state road near ProBuild’s lumberyard in Yorkville, Ill. A third ProBuild facility in Chicagoland, a truss and component plant, is not unionized.
