I have found your information to be extremely helpful to me in helping direct them. Thank you!

I am delighted to inform you that I was successful in our decertification against AFSCME Council 5, St. Paul, MN. This was a grass roots effort by three employees of Anoka County who felt we did not need union representation. I believe we were successful because of the valuable esource of LRI. Please feel free to share this with your staff. I would be happy to speak with anyone from LRI if it would be helpful. Thanks Again!!!

good coherency and largely actionable information

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.
