I received this letter by FOIA. It is written to Chris Koos on letterhead from the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 99:
Excerpt – note the date:
So, Local 99 is upset with Chris Koos for not awarding the project to a local contractor using local union labor on a Town of Normal project. The letter is dated March 16, 2021.
Jay Logan is so upset just a few days later UA Local 99 did this:
It only took NINE days to reward the guy who screwed them!
Koos has an invisible “D” behind his name though, does that cancel the hypocrisy? Did Koos promise them the massive water pipe project around Rivian would use local labor?
Or, does this prove unions will always vote for “D” regardless of how many times they get kicked in the teeth?
