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!!!

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.

Only In A Union

Members of the United Auto Workers had to resort to filing a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Labor Management Standards asking the agency to investigate charges of nepotism by the union’s top officials.

“Your department is being asked to investigate because we (the members) are not allowed to address these issues during union membership meetings,” the complaint said. “A sergeant-at-arms will attempt to usher you out of the meeting or yell for you to sit down. We need someone to look into these findings so the hard working members who work on the line each day will know that our interest is being protected.”

UAW VP Cal Rapson

UAW Vice President Cal Rapson was singled out in the complaint. 10 UAW-GM Center for Human Resources employees were indicated having close personal relations to Rapson.

The UAW-GM CHR appears to be a center for patronage. According to the complaint,

…there are approximately 76 hourly employees special assigned to the UAW-GM CHR from General Motors plants across the country, mostly from Michigan. Some are from closed plants. These individuals are simply selected based upon who they owe favors. They are protected when plant layoffs occur while their fellow union brothers and sisters with more seniority are laid off.
