With the United Auto Workers union going on strike at John Deere for the first time since 1986, many local businesses are helping out the employees in whatever ways they can.

For some restaurants, that comes in the form of discounted and even free food. Other businesses are offering discounted services for the employees.

We've done our best to put together a list of places supporting the strike. If we missed any, let us know by sending us an email.

  • The Pub (Milan): Free Pulled Pork Sandwich and pop every day until strike ends
  • The Q (Bettendorf): BOGO Drinks until Strike Ends

  • Legends Corner (Milan): $8 burger baskets until strike ends
  • The Captains Table (Moline): $2 cans until strike ends
