Life on the Line – A Blog Ran By Locked Out SCI Funeral Directors

Wanna get an inside look at the SCI lockout going down in Chicago? The blog’Life on the Line’ is probably as close to a real perspective as you’re going to get.

The blog is written by members of the teamster union who are affected by the SCI lockout. The blog covers many topics including:

Bloomberg Business Week calls SCI 1,000 pound gorilla

How to not run a funeral procession in Chicago

So how much money has SCI spent on this Strike/Lock Out situation?

There is also a very telling post that states SCI has spent over $1.6 MILLION on the lockout so far. It would be interesting to read a blog about the lockout written from SCI’s perspective.
