Chicago Rally, June 2006

This Rally was held in Chicago to protest against the Company in their efforts to use the non-union company, Cintas, as the sole distributer of the new uniforms. Cintas has a long history of being anti-union and against workers rights. Local 1700 sent a strong message to the company; "We will not wear your sweat shop uniforms!" On call were Executive Board Members Bruce Hamilton and Ronald A. Jordan who were joined by members of Unite Here and Chicago Drivers, Mechanics and Terminal Workers.
