This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

Big Labor’s Inherent Aggression

It pays to remember that violence is a mainstay of Big Labor tactics. According to The United States Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Pennsylvania, on February 18, 2014

“An indictment was unsealed…and arrests made, in a case charging ten members of Ironworkers Local 401 with allegedly participating in a conspiracy to commit criminal acts of extortion, arson, destruction of property, and assault, in order to force construction contractors to hire union ironworkers.

The group, who one member referred to as “THUG” – The Helpful Union Guys,” were employed by the Local to “protest construction sites that used non-union labor.” From allegedly assaulting non-union members with a baseball bat to setting a crane on fire, these men are independently facing anywhere from 15 years to a statutory maximum of 130 years in prison.

In Baltimore, the International Longshoremen’s Association punishment isn’t as harsh as jail time, but that’s because they lend themselves to more of a white collar criminal nature. Local 333 has been ordered to pay $3.8 million in lost revenue after their October strike closed the port of Baltimore for three days. They are, of course, fighting the federal arbitrator’s ruling.
