Illinois Democrats Rally Behind Union Workers as CSL Strike Enters Day Two


Share post:

BRADLEY, Ill. — In the midst of the unfolding strike at CSL Behring, the Kankakee County Democratic Party fervently calls upon the entire community to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the International Chemical Workers Union Local 498C. 

The current tussle isn’t just about numbers or wages; it’s a plea for job security and a stand against the persistent outsourcing shadow that has lingered for two years, representing more than just a dispute. It embodies the resilience, determination, and spirit of the Kankakee community. “Striking Union members will be out there every day, and the Kankakee Democratic Party will support them one day longer to achieve a fair and just contract that protects our family members, our friends our neighbors who support our community in so many ways,” said a party representative Thursday.

Their call to action? A plea to the community to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the striking members of Local 498C. The party believes that collective action can be a powerful force in the ongoing quest for a fair contract, especially against the backdrop of CSL’s impressive financial gains.
