Teamsters Local 700 welcomes 18 new members of the Burr Ridge Police Department who voted to join the Teamsters and leave their previous union, the Fraternal Order of Police.
Local 700 will soon begin the bargaining process with the Village of Burr Ridge to negotiate a new contract for the police department.
“We are proud to represent the Burr Ridge Police Department and we will fight to secure a strong Teamster contract for these hardworking officers,” said Teamsters Local 700 President Becky Strzechowski. “We represent thousands of members who work in law enforcement and we know the challenges they face when they put their lives on the line to protect us.”
Members of the Burr Ridge Police Department join the more than 5,000 Teamsters Local 700 members who serve in law enforcement.
