Will County Strike Over

Though the courts did not see much of an impact from the Will County strike, we’d still like to keep everyone in the loop and let our clients know that Will County and union negotiators have settled the contract issues, ending the 16-day strike.

Will County went on strike November 18th after over issues regarding raises and insurance. Many were concerned that the strike would  delay court filings and other legal procedures; however,  court procedures were not disrupted and no delays were reported.

Will County Strike Likely on Monday

According to the Chicago Tribune, Will County officials will likely be going on strike Monday, November 18th, 2013. Will County employees have been trying to strike a deal with union officials regarding healthcare and pay increases.

Despite the impending strike, the Tribune reported that “County officials said they plan to have county services available Monday even if employees strike. ” However, the article does not speculate what would happen after Monday if the strike took place and went unresolved.

Definitely keep a watchful eye on this topic and prepare for significant delays as a strike could seriously impact court proceedings, filings, and other matters.
