To the Editor:
I’m a member of the Teamsters Union Local 727. How can a funeral home owner be a teamster? Illinois is a forced-union state, which means if you gain employment at a union shop, you must join the union.
Many moons ago, Chicago funeral homes came under the teamsters umbrella because of livery, such as hearses, limos and transfer vehicles. I was forced to join the union when I gained employment at a Chicago funeral home.
