Here Is The Email SCI Is Sending To Funeral Directors, Offering Job Opportunity In Chicago

Service Corporation International has brought in out-of-state funeral directors to continue the work at the striking Chicago-area funeral homes.

Whether SCI remains willing to continue contract negotiations remains to be seen. According to the Teamsters, a picketing funeral director in Skokie said he received an email from a Dignity recruiter, offering him an opportunity, that read:

“We are contacting you for a potential opportunity on a temporary basis due to a strike in progress at some funeral homes owned and operated by SCI Illinois Services, Inc. These temporary assignments could lead to permanent positions based on the outcome of the strike and your performance; a permanent opportunity is not guaranteed.
Requirements:

  • Current and active Illinois Funeral Director/Embalmer license
  • Resident within the Chicago metro area

If you fit the requirements and are interested, please contact me for immediate consideration.
Thank you, Amber Kennedy
