Outrageous WATCH: Union Boss Shuts Down FOX Interview During O'Hare Strike
Workers for the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU, are striking today at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
Fox Business Network correspondent Jeff Flock was attempting to interview a woman who said she had been working for the airport for 16 years and gets paid $11 per hour for a seven-hour work day.
However, a union boss told her not to speak to Flock on-air, and Flock followed the man, who would not turn around, and questioned him.
Flock said, without the interruption, the woman's story would be a compelling case to the benefit of the SEIU's stated mission, but that the union normally pre-approves workers that talk to the press.
"Whatever side you're on, that woman has a compelling story to tell [as to why] a union should exist," Flock told Neil Cavuto.
He said such a rule "stifles people's ability to talk."
Workers, including baggage handlers and janitorial personnel, are striking to demand $15 per hour "living" wages among other new benefits.
