O’Hare Shuttle Drivers Become Teamsters

Nine new Teamsters who work as shuttle bus drivers with InterContinental Chicago O’Hare recently joined the union. They voted overwhelmingly to join Local 727 in Park Ridge, Ill.

This new unit of shuttle bus drivers, employed by United Temps, is joining many of their counterparts from a wide range of major hotel chains. Local 727 represents shuttle bus drivers, valets, doormen, bellmen and housekeepers at hotels across the Chicago area.

Local 727 President John Coli, Jr., welcomed the new Teamsters, saying,

“As our Teamster family—and our hotel membership—grows, our union grows stronger,” said International Vice President and President of Local 727 John Coli. “We are proud to welcome our newest members and proud to see them stand up for themselves in the workplace.”
