NLRB Finds Merit with Union’s ULP Charge against Chicago Jewish Funerals

| November 14, 2019

Region 13 of the National Labor Relations Board recently informed Teamsters Local 727 that it has found merit with an unfair labor practice charge filed by the Union against Chicago Jewish Funerals.

Local 727 initially filed the ULP charge after Chicago Jewish Funerals informed the Union that the Company would not honor the agreement reached during negotiations for a successor collective bargaining agreement, which included retroactivity.

The NLRB found the Company’s refusal to execute the agreement to be unlawful.  To remedy the violation, Region 13 will demand that Chicago Jewish Funerals execute the contract and make whole all employees for any wage raises or benefits that have not yet been paid, retroactive to July 2017.

“Let this be a lesson to all employers who think they can turn their back on their collective bargaining agreements,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.  “Local 727 will not hesitate to pursue justice.  We will fight for every one of our members.”

Members with questions should contact Local 727 Lead Business Representative Zach Frankenbach at (847) 696-7500 or [email protected].

Nothing in this article should be read as the union’s waiver of any legal argument, position or grievance(s), or as a waiver of any rights, arguments, or defenses under any contract, collective bargaining agreement, or applicable law. The union does not forfeit its right to make any and all supplemental arguments.
