Clout = Overtime in Chicago Water Department
Many years ago , I was in verbal disagreements with the way the overtime was distributed in the Chicago Department of Water Management. I talked to Michael Tierney and Tom Cook about why I did not get overtime. They asked me to leave the office and Michael Tierney slammed the door on me. I could not understand bribes were paid to Michael Tierney according to sworn testimony at Patrick McDonough's residency hearing. I called the Chicago Plumber's Union and they did nothing. Tierney married one of the daughters of the Business Agent, Tom McMannus, that had a duty and a obligation to protect it's members. Please read an article by Gary Washburn for your entertainment. http://www.ipsn.org/local_1001/web_site_details_ot_paid_by_city.htm The department is currently on a list system for laborers and a settlement has been made to it's members. Laborer's Union under Charles v. Loverde, the President and Business Manager have good leadership as compared to Plumber's Local 130 failing under James Sullivan. Keep Politics out of the Workplace!. A overtime list might be on the drawing board for the Plumbers. Wait and do not hold your breath. A Overtime Information Form has been requested by Management, changes coming? Will Teng and associates administer this list?
