Someone named Rhino, obviously a supporter of incumbent Republican Marlene Lantz, found my article on the McHenry County Coroner’s employees’ wanting to unionize sent in a comment. I can’t help but wonder if “Rhino” is a RINO, that is, a “Republican In Name Only.”
Anyway, here is his comment:
It is funny that Beckman [Bachmann is the correct spelling] said that employees don’t need to fear him, but than he goes on to talk about layoffs.
I believe he doesn’t understand the job as a coroner and would just like to win an election.
There is no way possible that this man could do the job alone. The increase in population alone has grown to the point that 6 people may not be enough.
Unless you would want to wait to pro long a burial or if you want mistakes made in investigations.
As far as anyone wanting to join a union they are protected in Illinois under the strongest labor laws in the country. I have a friend who works in this department and they work unbelievable hours and have allot of respect for their boss.
Maybe they formed a union for other reasons than this election. When other unions organized in the sheriffs office no one said they did it because their boss was a bad guy, or Even the highway department or so on.
Proud to be Union tradesman and I believe we all should be union.
One final note! Government is not there to save money but to make life more efficient and better, Which means if you have to open different offices and bring on ore staff to serve the public than that is what you are suppose to do.
Not keep everything in the 19th Century!
Tomorrow, you can read Dave Bachmann’s reply.
