Teamster organizing victory in Illinois!

Please give a warm welcome to our 28 new Teamster brothers and sisters who operate web press and full service print production at Repro Graphics in Elk Grove Village. They voted overwhelmingly to join Teamsters  in suburban Chicago last month.

Already they have a strong three-year contract approved. It includes significant wage increases and increased employer contributions to health and welfare and retirement plans.

Repro Graphics is the web press and mail-house division of the
Schiele Group, a longtime employer with Local 458 and District Council #4. The Schiele Group operates multiple union print facilities in the Chicago area, producing nearly a billion pieces of printed materials annually since 1948.

Bob Miller, president of Teamsters Local 458, said: he's proud to welcome the local's newest members into the Teamster family.
The talented workers at Repro Graphics have made our organization even stronger by voting for Teamster Power.
Local 458 is part of the Teamsters’ Graphic Communications Conference, home to the world’s leading pressman and production employees. It's also an affiliate of Teamsters Joint Council 25, which represents more than 125,000 hardworking men and women throughout Illinois and northwest Indiana.

They made the right choice!
