Workers having to strike for healthcare

Workers at SK Hand Tools in Chicago and suburban McCook began an unfair labor practice strike at 5:30am on August 25, 2009 after trying for months to get their health care reinstated. The workers are being forced to either forgo important medical check-ups and treatment or to go into debt putting the bills on their credit cards.

The strike lines are 24/7 at both locations and the strikers need people to join the lines in solidarity and to bring food, coffee, soda and water.

Chicago location: 3535 W. 47th St., Chicago
Suburban location: 9500 W. 55th St. (McCook, near Brookfield and LaGrange)
