The Laborer's Union is having a meeting tomorrow night, October 19, 2009. 1092 members are still smarting from furlough days and no overtime; the laborer's union did not give the all member's a chance to vote their opinion at the last meeting. That meeting did not include any revelations by the Union leader to attend Copenhagen for Daley's Olympic 2016 bid. This bid was made possible off the backs of Chicago union workers. Hard working laborers might want to ask who went and who paid. Who invited Chuck? Was this more of selling out workers? When was this deal struck? Was this Quid pro quo? No time for tears, we need straight answers. The LoVerde families are great people; Carol is an institution in Chicago Union circles. Chuck has made a nasty error here. The timing could not have been worse. The Plumber's Union under James Sullivan wants to keep in power longer than he is allowed. Jimmy wants the rules changed. Chicago Unions need fresh blood; the old actors have gone stale. Please note, the Teamsters laid off workers are returning back to work, many enjoyed unemployment checks for months, who is the sucker? Not me! Patrick McDonough

Loverde not the only Union guy in attendance at Copenhagen either.
“A good 200 Chicagoans arrived in Denmark at about dawn Chicago time Tuesday. They include Chicago Federation of Labor President Dennis Gannon and Chicago Park District President Gery Chico, as well as Chicago-area former Olympians like gymnast Nadia Comaneci and sprinter Jackie Joyner-Kersee.
(Response) LoVerde was an Olympic Hero?
I AM SO GLAD ALL OF THE TEAMSTERS ARE BACK TO WORK BY STANDING TOGETHER AND BEING STRONG AND HELPING ONE ANOTHER WE CAN MAKE BIG CHANGES.
This is one Teamster that got the call to return to work!! Collected $13,000 in unemployment benefits for 6 months, received around $425.00 a month of food stamps and got 100% medical coverage for the ENTIRE family (only a $3.00 co-pay even for quit smoking prescription). I think I was living better while laid off!!
Lets see your into the Plumbers Union, which you dont even have full have full membership, Then you are into the Teamsters and now Laborers Local 1092. You get around Pat.
However are you doing all of this as a Journalist? A Private Citizen, a head of a non profit organization?
Do youy get paid for this?
(Response) If you tell me your name I will tell you everything, everything!
To the guy that says you get around alot Pat he probably is one of Daley’s friend’s that is bitter that we didn’t get the olympics. Sorry you don’t get any under the table deals so you and the mayor can go fock yourselves
