Teamsters Union Goons Picket Child’s Funeral, Harass Mourners, Disrupt Service
Quote:A judge ordered one of Chicago’s most politically powerful labor unions to suspend picketing against 16 funeral homes last week after receiving reports that striking Teamsters had, among other things, disturbed a child’s funeral.

SCI Illinois Services, Inc., one of the nation’s largest funeral home chains, asked a district court to intervene after striking funeral directors and drivers with Teamsters Local 727 allegedly harassed grieving families.

“We are grateful that the court agreed to issue this temporary restraining order, and we are hopeful that it will help protect grieving families who are experiencing the most difficult times of their lives,” Larry Michael, managing director for SCI Illinois Services, Inc., said in a release.

“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 testified in its filing that union members 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.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Low morals , low I.Q. wouldn't expecting anything less from teamsters.
I do not believe any funeral for anyone should be the scene of protest, no matter who or what the protest is for.

So yes, I support 'free speech zones' when it comes to funerals and cemeteries.

as a union member...i would not support this...picket when showings are not happening if it is a violation to their contract

Teamsters for Obama... yay. I would probably vote to aquit if the funeral attendees responded with violent action.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
