Oak Park employees go on strike

July 7, 2012 (CHICAGO)

The union and village management have been engaged in negotiations for seven months. The two outstanding issues include wages and being penalized for using sick time.

A strike would have meant that no vehicle sticker, parking pass and permit sales, and no public works duties would be completed. However, Village of Oak Park spokesman David Powers told ABC7 Monday that some union employees went to work despite the strike and that non-union workers were also filling in some spots. He said all facilities and sites were open for business.
