We have received a few emails saying that the locked-out Chicago funeral directors and SCI have reached an agreement to end the strike and lock-out that has been going on since mid-2013.

We have not received official confirmation of this but we have found a few clues that are promising.

The blog that was operated by the funeral directors on lockout, http://funeraldirectorlockedout.blogspot.com/, has been removed (pictured above) as well as the website: http://www.integrityinillinois.com/ (pictured below) that was set up as a resource to direct consumers to funeral homes in the Chicagoland not operated by SCI.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
