Two more members of Philadelphia Ironworkers Local 401 received prison sentences Wednesday for participating in an organized campaign of violence, sabotage and intimidation intended to pressure builders into hiring union workers.
Francis Sean O’Donnell, a 43-year-old business agent who oversaw union workers in Delaware and Chester Counties, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for his role in ordering attacks on several suburban construction sites.
In addition to his prison term, U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson ordered him to pay $228,000 in restitution.
Baylson also sentenced Sean Bailey, 34, to a six-month prison term and three months house arrest for his participation in 2013 attack on an under-construction warehouse on Grays Avenue. He was ordered to pay back $10,000.
O’Donnell and Bailey were among 12 Ironworkers convicted of crimes last year, including a December 2012 arson at a Quaker meetinghouse under construction in Chestnut Hill. Four, including longtime union head Joseph Dougherty, remain to be sentenced in the case.
