04.22.16 The Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee and Chicago Zoological Society (CZS) management on April 21 reached a tentative agreement on a five-year contract, which preserves health care benefits for nearly 300 workers at Brookfield Zoo. Teamsters Local 727 represents full-time and seasonal zoo workers, including zookeepers, groundskeepers and patrol officers. “From Day One, we made it abundantly clear that health care was the most important issue for our members,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “We are glad that zoo management finally heard our members’ concerns and came to the table ready to work with us to ensure these workers and their families are taken care of for years to come.”
