Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Time waits for no man, Teamsters wait on no man

The Teamsters are contemplating a strike at funeral homes in Chicago, and I wish the good people of Chicago well. From the Chicago Sun Times:

The Teamsters and a funeral home chain are coming down to the wire in contract negotiations, raising the specter of a strike by funeral directors and drivers at 17 Chicago-area sites. The three-year contract between Chicago’s Teamsters Local 727 and Houston-based Service Corporation International expires at the end of the day June 30, and union officials said the two sides remain far apart on economics.

Now I won’t speak ill of the dead….but the Teamsters…..
