Informative on current events, trends and pending actions of unions, congress, NLRB, Administration and business community (Chamber, etc.). Helpful for small business owners and management who don't have the time for a daily "watch" of the critical players in this milieu.

Terrific, particularly on breaking news issues
P. Lantingan

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.

Just A Little Arm-Twisting

Vincent "The Vet" Aulisi

Vincent “The Vet” Aulisi

Three former members of the International Longshoremen’s Association have seen their days of muscling “tribute payments” come to an end. Vincent Aulisi is the former president of Local 1235, Thomas Leonardis was the president from 2008 until he was arrested in 2011, and Robert Ruiz was a union delegate and former ILA representative.

All three pleaded guilty to using real or implied threats of force or violence against fellow members of Local 1235 to extract “tribute,” and each face a possible 20 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines. At the ages of 82, 56 and 55 respectively, they may end their lives behind bars.
