Press conference of Local 24 UNITE HERE elected officers castigating the lockout and takeover of their union by unelected officials of the Chicago & Midwest Regional Joint Board of UNITE HERE These members dues of about 4 million per year have been going to Chicago for over 2 years. They democratically voted to join the board hoping bigger is better. After realizing they were better off before the merger they were democratically trying to dissolve the merger. They are in the process of withdrawing from the joint board to regain control of their own dues. The Chicago Joint board has trumped up charges against Detroit local officials, gained access to the Detroit locals offices, changed the locks before local elected officers got to work, thereby keeping them from doing the members business, all in an effort to keep the Detroit Local 24 members dues flowing into their own coffers.
