It took a judge’s order to stop a greedy Chicago union and make its members stop picketing funerals including one service being held for a deceased child by a grieving family.
SCI Illinois Services Inc. (SCIIS), a large funeral home chain has been struck by Teamsters Local 727 which has harassed grieving families seeking to bury their loved ones.
A statement from SCIIS said, “While we recognize and respect the Teamsters’ right to lawfully picket, we have been shocked and saddened by their attempts to make grieving families the target of the cruel and outrageous attacks.”
The company was referencing the fact that union goons, “..blocked grieving family members from leaving its parking lot, used bullhorns to shout obscenities at workers and mourners, and unleashed a German Shepard on a dead woman’s daughter and husband.”
The union’s activity reached their lowest point when one funeral home had to call the police because these lowlifes disrupted a child’s funeral with laughter. The goons waited until the responding officer left in the mistaken belief that they could act like decent people. He was wrong. They immediately returned to continue their disgusting antics.
“We will be here for the visitation; we will be here for your funeral,” a union driver using a bull horn shouted to the family of a dying man as they to tearfully tried to make pre-planned arrangements for his funeral.
Local 727 is run by the Coli crime family which has been hauled into court to face hundreds of federal RICO Statute charges surrounding their attempts to extort money from SCIIS which is specifically mentioned several times in the government’s case against these gangsters.
On strike since July 1st, the union has rejected a 9% raise over the next two years because it wants more. Why should these thugs back down? It is widely believed that the Coli family elected Rahm Emanuel to be Chicago’s mayor and helped Barack Obama win the 2008 Illinois Democrat presidential primary.
This might be Chicago at its worst, but does it really get any better, really?
