Health, clerical workers reject University of Chicago contract offer

Chicago Tribune, August 4, 2009

The union contends that the hospital was asking for too steep of increases in medical-care coverage, among other issues. Teamsters Local 743, which represents clerical, service, and maintenance workers, said U. of C. management is asking workers to take on "healthcare increases up to 10% each year of the contract."
