300 job cuts at O’Hare airport the jobs are all janitorial. the main reason for the job cuts may be believe it are not to mob ties yea you heard right Mob ties with the company that employs these janitors the company’s name is United Maintenance .
United Maintenance has a history of not only undercutting good jobs, but now the issue has been raised of mob ties of the owner(Richard Simon) of the firm. Richard Simon was involved in another company with alleged mob figure William Daddano Jr. from 1998 until that firm was officially disbanded on Dec. 17, 2011. with a history like this you might expect Mayor Rahm Emanuel ( former chief of staff for the Obama white house) to take a second look before he awarding the contract to this company.
In a political twist union SEIU is asking for a rebid they say United Maintenance is undercutting jobs too much and not paying a wage family’s can live on
