For several weeks, members of the Service Employees International Union Local One have been protesting Mayor Rahm Emanuel at his North Side home, the airport, and City Hall.
The union is angry with City Hall’s decision to contract out hundreds of union custodial jobs ad is fighting a new cleaning contract awarded at O’Hare. Now, it appears the fight is getting personal.
FOX 32 News obtained a copy of an SEIU plan to spend a half million dollars for what the union calls, “taking on the millionaires’ mayor.”
“In the coming months, the national news will be dominated by these types of stories. We feel strongly that Rahm Emanuel can be made the national ‘poster child‘ for neo-liberals who are hell-bent on adopting these regressive policies.”
