Chicago Union Operators Strike Comes to an End

After nearly three weeks without setting foot on a jobsite for any reason other than to picket, the Operators have reached an agreement with MARBA.  Tentatively speaking anyway.  According to Local 150:
Tonight, after more than 9 hours of negotiations, a tentative agreement was reached between Local 150 and the Mid America Regional Bargaining Association (MARBA). The agreement calls for 3.25 percent annual increases for three years on the District 1, 2 and 3 Heavy Highway and Underground and Building Agreements.

Ratification is scheduled for this Wednesday.
The Operators have been leading the charge in this strike, and, as they usually do, the Laborers are likely to follow.  Let's get back to work!
