Share post:

BRADLEY, Illinois — The storm clouds of industrial unrest are gathering ever more darkly after CSL Behring was formally notified that a staggering 99% of the Local 498c union workers had rejected their proposed contract Sunday night.

The news comes days after a significant informational picket, this latest development teeters the scales ever closer to an impending strike. Of the 653 union votes cast, 647 emphatically voiced their rejection. This near-unanimous decision reveals a profound discontent with the company’s terms.

Sources from the plant expressed their distress, noting, “After being branded ‘essential’ during Covid and being the frontline workforce, the company seems oblivious to our value and to the community’s well-being. With our contract due to lapse on the 27th, the clock is ticking for the company to amend its offer, or face a strike.”

The Negotiating Committee of Local 498c, in their update, commended the union members, stating, “The overwhelming support of the body has sent a clear message to CSL, and we recognized all members who have picketed, supported the cause, and came out to vote today.”

CSL has remained quiet on the looming strike in Bradley, as they grapple with the tidal wave of worker unrest surging at their doorstep.
