Machinist Union Hierarchy Faces Federal Prosecution in Wake of Last Summer's Caterpillar Strike

Union officials illegally imposed thousands of dollars in strike fines on workers

Joliet, IL (July 3, 2013) – The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued a complaint against a local Machinist union for violating the rights of three Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT) workers in the wake of last summer's union boss-instigated strike against the company.

The NLRB's complaint stems from federal charges filed by three Caterpillar workers, with free legal aid from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, against the International Association of Machinists (IAM) District Lodge 851 union for violating their rights and levying retaliatory strike fines against them.
