Members of the Manufacturing, Production and Service Workers Union, Local 24 of the AFL-CIO, are striking a Deutsche Postal Global Mail mail terminal in Elk Grove Village, IL.
DPGM is in collective bargaining negotiations with the union. Talks began in early February, and bargaining sessions occurred monthly through May. On June 19, a part of the union from the Illinois facility decided to strike over economic issues rather than accept DPGM's invitation to meet again at the bargaining table.
DPGM did not have an exact number of employees on strike.
The company's other mail terminals are in Hawthorne, CA, and Rutherford, NJ.
