We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Teamsters Spend Over a Week on Chicago’s Navy Pier Protesting Another Union

28th May 2017

Read it.

Teamsters Local 727, which represents 43 security, fire and safety officers that work on Navy Pier, filed an unfair labor practice charge against Navy Pier’s management company May 11 and went on strike May 18. The union said that Navy Pier, Inc. (NPI) intimidated the union in its efforts to protect the jobs of its members.

Local 727 is concerned that Allied wants to bring in workers at $13 an hour through Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Teamsters said it was ironic that the SEIU is leading the fight for $15, but is being used by Allied to lower wages for security guards at the pier.

Workes of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your jobs….
