think frank sat down at the table today and was thankful for where he is today? Did he think about all the people he stepped on to get to where he is today? Did he think of all the members he screwed over? Was he thankfull for all the money he overpaid himself while leading local 2 to the highest legal fees of any local in the history of the IUEC? Was he thankful for being the biggest liar in the local and getting away with it? Was he thankful for being one of the least skilled members of the local and still ending up where he is now? Was he thankful the mrs never found out about the massages with happy endings back in the day at the conventions out east? Was he thankful that Ed never sat on him? And most of all is he thankful that the DOL has not indicted him yet and brought the embarrassment his pathetic puny ass so richly deserves? I don't think he did because frank believes he was entitled to it all thank god that price of shit is out of town and we don't have to sit and listen to him every month. Happy Thanksgiving to all the honest hard working members of local 2 and not the crooked officers.

The unions in Chicago only exist to get more democrat voters in a pay-for-vote scheme. I honestly have no sympathy for all those who voted in these people and willingly set up a grave-retirement for themselves while others have to pay for their upkeep the rest of their lives.

However, looks like something is coming home to roost. At least if it was chickens instead of valueless "promises", they would have enough to eat. Or is there no worries at all? Are they simply planning to raise property taxes 150% OR tax the rest of the US population?

Will be interesting to see. And teachers are now suing to keep their goodies. What a joke!!

The message seems to be the more corrupt you are are the more you get rewarded. Kinda like giving guns to a mexican drug cartel. Or partying in vegas while Americans are being gunned down and lying about it to help yourself get elected. But hey lets keep voting along party lines. Yeah keep listening to those corrupt union bosses who keep throwing their members under the bus Yeah that DOL is a model government agency isn't it ?.

From my understanding, inspectors and some maintenance guys are non union, but as far as new construction i doubt theres much non union in the city, mayb 2-3 floor buildings in the burbs , but any high rise in the city would be our guys
