Union Thugs Deface Funeral Homes Over Union Fight

Apparently unions don’t even respect the dead. In Chicago, union thugs are defacing funeral homes over a contract dispute. Yeah. Property damage. That sure is a legitimate way to go about business, isn’t it? Good thing some of the people in those businesses are already dead or they’d have something to fear from the union thugs, too.

Naturally, the perpetrators are the Teamsters, Local 727. No surprise that it’s the Teamsters, either. These thugs have a long, long history of violence.

The contract for 16 embalmers, drivers, and funeral directors ran out with the Alderwoods funeral home chain on June 30. Unsurprisingly, the businesses were defaced by the unionists.

The Chicago Sun Times recently reported[1] that Company spokeswoman Jessica McDunn said, “Three of those four funeral homes were vandalized…with vulgar profanity, broken windows, damage to the front door and damage to an associates’s car.”

Shockingly, the union went all wide-eyed and denied any knowledge of the vandalism.

“We certainly don’t condone that kind of behavior,” union creep Maggie Jenkins said feigning innocence.

The union thugs whine that the funeral home owners are “negotiating in bad faith[2].”

Teamsters Local 727, which represents 16 Alderwoods embalmers, drivers and funeral directors, had been negotiating with the company that owns the homes after their labor contract expired June 30. The union complained that the other side had bargained in bad faith and had “…proposed a three-year wage freeze and a company health care package that is more expensive and less comprehensive than the union’s health and welfare benefits,” reports the Chicago Sun-Times. And so the Teamsters targeted four funeral homes for strike.

In the end, who cares what these unionistas say when they are willing to act like criminals? This is why unions are illegitimate. This is why unions are un-American not to mention uncivilized.

What makes these creeps any better than the Phelps crew at the Westboro Baptist Church?
