Service Corporation International Rejects Union Offer, Insists On Eliminating Pension Fund, Health & Education Benefits

Sunday, 30 Jun 2013 07:22pm EDT 

Service Corporation International announced that it has rejected an offer from Teamsters Local 727 and countered with its original proposal to eliminate the employees' pension, health and educational assistance benefits. The union will take SCI's proposal to the 59 funeral directors and drivers for a vote on Monday night. If the members reject the offer, a strike vote will be held immediately following the vote. All votes are by secret ballot and only affected funeral directors and drivers can participate. On Sunday, in an attempt to avert a strike, the union withdrew virtually all of its proposals and made an offer that included wage increases of 3 percent in each year of a five-year contract and retention of current pension, health, legal and educational assistance benefits.
