How about John Aubin the mechanic that retired from the University Of Illinois at Chicago that is getting a pension of $8800 after taxes a month? Now hes back at the university working for Smart Elevator full time building that pension up? Maybe this wouldnt be so bad if there wasnt so many guys on the bench. But why isnt his brither Ed saying "John this doesn't look good. Members are losing houses. Retire already, your 63!" Oh well food for thought!

It is bad enough to use an elderly woman and her pet, now you are involving a small child. Be Careful of the world you are actually creating. Endangering a child for money is the most disgusting thing I can imagine. Unfortunately it was paid or played out in my yard tonight. How much is your freedoms worth? You are very close to discovering the price you will pay, along with the children in your care. They are watching, listening, and learning everything you are doing. Please stop. If not for yourself, then at least for them.

Didn't the hall go after Thompson for something like this? Thompson was basically trying to make a little money and they went after him like he just robbed local 2's office. This guy sounds like he cashing in big time. But yet no flags are thrown up because who hes related to? This just doesnt seem fair during this time when do many people are unemployed.

A union is a pretty straight forward operation. You pay dues , you get the benefits of a agreement that is bargained for the collective whole. When outside influences start making changes it becomes very obvious. When threats are made it becomes even more obvious. When your privacy is invaded it speaks even more.

All the rights secured to the citizens under the Constitution are worth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to them by an independent and virtuous Judiciary.

Talk about Doubling Down ! The international is all in! They are betting on frank. Franks international status and and being a BM of local 2 in Chicago has allowed him to get the leverage he needs on General President Dana Brigham. Why would he give him another international title ? Frank is no leader by any means. Making a local corrupt he is very good at, plus spending the locals money on frivolous lawsuits. So the Corruption Continues !

Enabling Criminal behavior must run in the family. Having a massive contempt for the law must also run in the family, be must really be Elite. Terry must be real proud. You know that pos that can dish it put but he can't take it.

Your knees frank fan it's disturbing that you defend a group that is still under criminal investigation for crimes against the local and individual members.

Yes it was about 10 years ago when this officer was on the e-board and pimped out this guy who started to hit on the same girl at Morettis after a union meeting.

So not only is IUEC under criminal investigation. But the members will retire into Poverty also. The officers on the otherhand will profit fully from the biased pension plan. I am convinced that the membership exists to pay for the lavish lifestyle and bloated pensions for the officers of IUEC!!!!!!

Iuec will not be a union until we have Member Ratification and real working Democracy. Not this collusive & Retaliatory & Hostile Environment for the members. IUEC is geared towards the officers & that is a fact !

Whoa is me, you're making $48.56 an hour plus a $23.45 an hour benefit package. Who got this for you? The officers of both the International and Local 2. In that deal you have both a funded Annuity and Pension too. You have people with Masters Degrees not even getting close to what you're getting.
