$150,000 Win and First Contract at Parkview Metal Products
Laying off the 10 most senior employees following a successful organizing drive at Parkview Metal Products in Chicago, IL proved to be a costly mistake. IAM District 8 in Forest Park, IL immediately swung into action on behalf of our laid off members. The resulting NLRB charge and settlement reinstated those 10 employees and made them whole for all losses to the tune of $150,000.

IAM District 8 Director Carl Gallman proudly said, “Our new members held solid throughout this process. Not only did they get the IAM representation they wanted, but they were successful in achieving a first contract with good wage increases in each year of the 3 year contract plus a bonus in the first year.”
