Chicago area auto mechanics reject deal, continue strike at dealerships

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago area auto mechanics plan to continue their strike this week. They rejected an offer over the weekend.

Members of Automobile Mechanics' Local 701 walked off the job late last month in a dispute over pay and health insurance costs.

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association has said the strike is affecting about one-third of its dealerships.

The union says it's willing to return to the bargaining table.
