As Canteen Vending acquires Ace Vending, the membership of Teamsters Local 710 increases by 150 members.
Chicago Teamster Membership Surges at Canteen in South Suburbs
03.27.17 — Teamsters Local 710 is growing 150 members stronger after Canteen Vending acquired Ace Vending at the beginning of March — a nearly 140 percent increase in membership for the Chicagoland area bargaining unit. The former Ace Vending was a non-union entity. Now, under a Teamster contract, those employees will earn the improved benefits and protections all workers deserve. The new members will see a significant pay increase from the subpar wages they earned as Ace employees, averaging between approximately $2-$4 per hour in most cases. They will also receive complete insurance coverage through the Chicago Truck Drivers Union and additional personal days, and they will keep their seniority and earned vacation benefits after the existing members at Canteen.
