Local 727 Participates in 17th Annual FDSA Tradeshow

| November 7, 2022

On Wednesday November 2nd, Local 727 participated in the 17th annual FDSA Tradeshow held at the White Eagle Events & Convention Center in Niles, IL. Local 727 Union Representatives Ben Rodriguez and Nick Micaletti were on hand to meet and greet current and retired Local 727 Funeral Director Embalmer member attendees. Ben and Nick also had the opportunity to speak to unrepresented Apprentices and Directors in the Funeral industry who were interested in discussing union organizing.

2022 has been a successful year for Local 727 Funeral Industry members as the Union successfully renegotiated strong successor agreements for both the FDSA and Alderwoods contracts as well as reaching a deal on the SCI wage reopener.

While at the show, Local 727 representatives were able to find an additional Embalmer speaker for the upcoming Fall/Winter CE Seminar which will be held in December. The Union will send out information on the upcoming CE Seminar over the next few weeks after all speakers and topics have been finalized.

The Union would like to thank Benefit Fund Representative Scott Johnson for joining us in the booth to answer benefit fund questions for members and retirees.

If you have any questions, please contact Business Representatives Ben Rodriquez ([email protected]) or Nicholas Micaletti ([email protected]) at 847-696-7500.
