Local 73 Informs Clerk Yarbrough Threatening Workers is Illegal

SEIU Local 73’s attorney sent a letter to Cook County Clerk’s Office informing them their letter to workers threatening discipline for striking was illegal and must be rescinded immediately.

“We will not let illegal threats stop us,” said Dian Palmer, President of SEIU Local 73. “Our members at the Clerk’s Office have a legal right to strike and we will take to the streets to exercise that right.”

Should the Clerk’s Office fail to rescind the letter the union will be filing additional unfair labor practice charges against them.
