CHICAGO— 54 custodians who clean Chicago libraries turned in their city ID's Friday.

The city gave them pink slips earlier this month.

Leaders of SEIU, which represents the workers, say they knew for a long time that the custodians would be laid off -- but they expected 90 days advance notice, and only found out this past week.

The clowns at the SEIU sure our taking some hits from Rahm. LOL! Same thing happened to Ernst Rohm and his girlfriends back in the 30s. Good luck bozos! You’re going to need it.

Who in Chicago reads books anyway? Figured libraries there were just a place the homeless can go to watch internet porn all day.

They’re being replaced by contract services..... Kickbacks, cronyism much easier this way.

Chicago library custodians laid off

What? Not properly connected to the DemoRat Chicago Machine?

Or not properly connected to the Mob?

Or simply no longer useful idiots?

Workers say it couldn’t come at a worse time, with holidays just around the corner.

A better time would be? Most of us would feel that there is no good time to be laid off, especially for political cronyism and payback reasons....but that’s pay to play Chicago for you. Guess someone didn’t pay up.

90 days advance notice would have been pre-election. The Communist Party USA is still celebrating the election results.

It’s funny how so many are clueless to what’s going on due to an incapable press and/or their own willful ignorance.

Unions should learn that you can only negotiate with someone who has something of value. Government creates nothing of value. Unions have laid down with law makers, and the law makers will write laws to usurp the unions, since, why is there a need for union management when the government is doing the same job.
