Alderwoods Funeral Directors, Drivers Ratify Three-Year Contract

CHICAGO, July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teamsters Local 727-represented Alderwoods funeral directors, embalmers and livery drivers voted overwhelmingly to ratify a three-year contract late Tuesday night.


"In the end, we were able to keep good Chicago jobs and secure the livelihoods of these hardworking men and women for three more years," said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727.

The 16 members work at four Alderwoods funeral homes in the Chicago area: Weinstein Funeral Home in Wilmette, Lauterburg-Oehler Funeral Home in Arlington Heights, Oehler Funeral Home in Des Plaines and Mount Auburn Funeral Home in Stickney. The funeral homes are owned by funeral industry giant Service Corporation International (NYSE: SCI) and operate under the Dignity Memorial brand name.

The previous three-year contract expired June 30.

Teamsters Local 727 represents more than 6,000 hardworking men and women throughout the Chicago area, including about 450 funeral industry workers.
