Many City of Chicago employees are a cold as a cadaver thanks to the failures of Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her midget sidekick CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, M.D. The two twins made idiots of themselves recently with their stupid hero costumes. Could you imagine Rahm Emanuel as “Captain Schlep” saving Chicago from Covid-19? Mayor Lightfoot is still self-serving her attempt to move up the democratic party money chain.
Facts, since the onset of the Chicago Covid-19, Mayor Lightfoot has ordered Chicago City Workers to continue to serve Chicago taxpayers in an unprepared and unsafe manner. It stuns me no Chicago Newspapers have demanded Mayor Lightfoot’s plan to save city workers from this ravishing virus.
One section, the Department of Water Management, still hit the hardest is the Teamsters. The Chicago drivers were herded into the Foreman’s office every morning and afternoon to receive assignments. Also, some foreman contacted Covid-19 and spread it to their drivers. Some foreman contacted Covid-19 and caused the death of those they were trusted to lead. Mayor Lightfoot had no plan and isolate the drivers. Many of these drivers at lunch together, talk and bullshit, exposing themselves and their families. The Drivers had an agreement to only have one passenger according to the Mayor’s Office. He said the Drivers were allowing additional workers in the cab during the day and Foreman were in and out of the cab to bullshit. Chicago does not demand workers have drivers licenses as a condition of employment.
Streets and Sanitation have enforced the rules.
I asked the COC to stop swiping with Kronos. The hands of the infected spread the Covid-19. The City refused to stop this deadly practice due to their paranoia of anyone stealing an extra hour of two. The COC does not mind paying week after week, one million plus for workers sitting at home. Silly.
Many Unions, such as Local 130, only provided some dirt-cheap cloth face masks that cost $1.49 each. All of us know these masks endangered Plumbers into a false sense of security. You think the past record of not protecting workers would wake them up, but they need to pay political hacks like John C. D’Amico to stay and home and fart around. Not bad for a State rep double dipping.
Local 130 Plumbers and some Hoisting engineers refused to drive their own cars because they are too cheap, have DUI’s, or come to work wasted. Lori Lightfoot still refuses to order random drug tests workers because the Unions are paying her political bills. Many Laborers are stuck riding the trucks because they have no money for bus fare, taxis, or other alternative transportation. This again is exposing all workers to Covid-19. Many Laborers, Plumbers, Hoisting Engineers, and office workers are exposed every day because Lightfoot is too cheap to pay for needed PPE. Where are the visits from the Illinois Department of labor? Where is the DOWM Safety Department? Where are the Union Reps? Are they all hiding in John D’Amico’s basement?
I have witnessed some bad news and I am reporting to Lori and Ms. Sheahan at the Mayor’s Office. On almost every inspection I have witnessed, not a single worker has worn their PPE. These videos are going to the right hands. Some bosses are dishing out the days off and I hope some people get the message. When a driver gets Covid-19, the General Superintendents must order the private firms to sanitize the trucks. Some trucks are required for multiple shifts, and the North District like G.S. Sorich have been accused of being cheap and not taking adequate measure to protect the workers. Some G.Ss. have been telling workers if they file a workers’ compensation claim, they will be blacklisted or fired. One G.S. told workers, the Covid-19 is like Herpes Simplex, it will never go away. Some G.S. tell workers, “you get paid to sleep it off at home, so man up”. Facts are, in all the investigations I have been on, the crews are way too close and forget the risks.
Bosses Like Dwayne Hightower have been giving time to workers off for non-compliance. I am going to give him a star. Mr. Hightower has always been an enforcer; I am glad I was not in his sights. Chicago has only given one cloth mask. Just recently, DOWM has finally given workers cloth masks. Another employee on the hot seat for her alleged cover-ups of workers’ compensation, Olufemi O Sokoya is getting the job done on Covid-19 safety. So far, the Department of Water Management needs ti make sure they are in full compliance with OSHA and the Illinois Department of Labor, or more heads are going to roll. If Olufemi has time to cover-up FOIA Laws and attempt to remove injured workers to jobs they are not released to do, she is going to become a internet sensation.
So, separate all the employees. Separate cars, separate eating, always separate. Do not destroy and entire family by being stupid. Work out of your cars, video is in the yards. Test employees. Stop the Kronos. Despite the fact federal, state, and local employees are exempt from privacy laws, stop the Kronos. Get the proper masks.
Closing: The Vactors are aerating feces and waste. They create mists that workers inhale. If you have clout, get off the Vactor truck. If you do not, contact me. Out testing shows Covid-19 is in the Chicago Sewer System. We are forwarding our test results to Mayor Larry Lightfoot.
