Although I do not own a company any more, and never did have more than four employees, I never had a good interaction with a union. I appreciate this site because it's good to know that business owners can get help in dealing with unions. I believe that in spite of some good results from union efforts in our nation's history, the bottom lien score for unions overall are about a minus-5 on a scale of minus 10 to plus 10. If I had a large company here in Florida, I'd be watching out for unions very much, because our Governor is on the make for a presidential bid, and he's a RINO. Even though our state is RTW, that can change. It is good to have a resource like the Labor Relations Institute for companies that need help, especially when our so-called President has never seen a law he won't break for his own advantage.

Carpenters Union Sued

“Bigelow Aerospace has had to explain to customers and government officials that despite the union’s banner and leaflets, it does not have an ongoing labor dispute with any union. These instances resulted in undue embarrassment to Bigelow Aerospace and jeopardized multi-million dollar procurement contracts,” the lawsuit reads in part.

Carpenters Union Local 1977 has been engaged in a “false smear campaign” against the space contractor, ostensibly due to a long-running dispute between the union and contractor Pete King Construction. Bigelow Aerospace asserts that it does not conduct any business with Pete King, although a company owned by the same magnate, Bigelow Development, apparently does.

The suit further charges that, “Defendants continue publishing falsehoods against Bigelow Aerospace in a misguided attempt to injure the business reputation of Bigelow Aerospace, intimidate its employees and interfere with its business relationships.”
