Teamsters on Strike Need Your Support!

A message from Temsters Local 743...
The strikers at SK Hand Tools need community support to maintain the strike lines - please forward this e-mail widely!

Workers at SK Hand Tools began an unfair labor practice strike at 5:30am on August 25, 2009 after trying for months to get their health care reinstated. The workers are being forced to either forego important medical check-ups and treatment or to go into debt putting the bills on their credit cards.

The strike lines are 24/7 at both locations and the strikers need people to join the lines in solidarity and to bring food, coffee, soda and water.

Chicago location: 3535 W. 47th St. Click here for the map.

Please visit the Teamsters 743 website ( for more information.

In Solidarity, Sarah
