IL Tollway Board Member “Orchestrates” Potential Strike at Jane Addams Tollway Construction Site

Daily Herald reports, “A strike at a construction site on the Jane Addams Tollway in Des Plaines orchestrated by a tollway board member could slow the long-awaited completion of the project. International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 members said they would picket a tollway contractor, Stalworth Underground, starting Thursday night [September 1] at the I-90 bridge over Oakton near Des Plaines. Stalworth owes the union more than $40,000 from a grievance settlement, said James Sweeney, Local 150 president and a tollway director.”
