From the Napleton website:
The Napleton Family operates more than 80 dealerships in four states. Taking pride in helping each community they live and work in, the Napleton Family name has become synonymous with excellence and teamwork. What started as a small family-owned business has blossomed into one of the most forward-thinking dealership groups in the country.
Ed’s business has grown to include 59 franchises – housed in 30 different locations – in five states. He owns domestic, import and high line franchises, and employs more than 2000 people throughout Illinois, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania and Missouri. Four of Ed’s five children have proudly joined him in pursuing the family business and have a hand in the company’s day-to-day operations.
The thing is, union mechanics are striking over issues concerning time with their families.
Among the unresolved issues are pay for uncompensated time, work rules that interfere with the mechanics’ family time and lack of an industry career path, according to a union statement. The union also wants a guaranteed 40-hour work week, according to Sam Cicinelli, directing business representative for Local 701.
I think I will let the Napleton family know how I feel about their union-busting business by giving them a call: 847 825 1800.
