Photos from September 24, 2014, when a few of our members went down to Chicago to support Teamsters Local 743. The Patient Care Tech’s from Rush University Medical Center are trying to organize with Local 743 but the employer is refusing to bargain or meet with the union. A prayer vigil was held to support the patient care nurses in their efforts to organize.
