Hi Jim and Phil, I would like to thank your team on our recent victory over the IAFF in our election on Friday. We won with about 2/3 of the votes in our favor. I could not have done it without the great work of Scott Michel. He got to the root of the problem almost immediately and got me headed in the right direction. Thanks again for your expert help.

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.

Fat Cat Union Bosses

This is a great 2 minute Fox News video exposing the exorbitant salaries and benefits that union bosses around New York are drawing, while their union locals are languishing. Examples:

• Hector Lopez, president of Metal Polishers Local 8A-28A – the union is running a $330,000 deficit in 2008 while Lopez took $148,000 in salary… $40,000 more than union rules allow!
• Rocco Miranti – head of Local 223 for Toy and Novelty Workers – his union is a half-million in debt with an almost non-existent pension fund, while he and his family took in more than $400,000 last year (while he worked about 8 hours a week- that’s about $1,000 per hour!).
• Bill Duffy – boss of Operating Engineers Local 138 – which has less than 20% of its membership employed, while Duffy, his brother, son, and nephew took in over $679,000.
