Chicagoland Families Stand With Striking Funeral Directors, Transfer Services To Alternative Funeral Homes

Striking Teamsters have also reached out to many families who've shown their support with donations of flowers and words of thanks for honoring the ongoing pickets.

"Any family who makes the choice to oppose SCI and patronize alternative homes at this time will forever be a friend of the Teamsters," Coli said. "Funeral directors and drivers you see on the picket line have been pillars of support within their communities for generations and they are so grateful for the resolve Chicago families have shown by transferring their funeral services. Whether or not families stop by the picket lines for more information or just offer a friendly honk as they drive by, the Teamsters are touched by all of the support."

Since pickets began, more than 90 religious leaders and Chicago clergy have also stood strong with Teamster funeral directors, signing religious appeals to urge SCI to bargain in good faith with the union.

Teamsters Local 727 represents 59 funeral directors and drivers at Dignity Memorial funeral homes across Chicagoland. SCI forced workers out on the unfair labor practice strike nearly four weeks ago. The Teamsters have established a website ( www.integrityinillinois.com) and hotline (312-206-4123) to direct families to community-friendly funeral homes not affected by the labor action. A complete list of affected homes is available at the site.

Teamsters Local 727 has represented Chicago's funeral directors and embalmers since 1946, and it represents more than 6,800 hardworking men and women in the greater Chicagoland area.
