Testimonials

Had an opportunity to meet and listen to Phil in this week's CUE Conf. His presentation was an absolute home run - which is very appropriate for the host city - home of the Louisville Slugger. This information clearly focuses on "preventive medicine" which should eliminate or greatly minimize the risk of any serious "illness" - Left of The Boom is a great way to show importance of being pro active and what happens when we wait to react. Great job !

Easy to navigate and very informational

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.

Solidarity vs. Low Low Prices

A Quinnipiac Poll released last week shows 63% of union households in NYC would shop at Walmart if they could.  Currently, union members (and everyone else) can’t shop at a Walmart in NYC because their union bosses won’t have it — and they’ve  been putting the screws to city officials to keep NYC Walmart free.

Not only do union members not seem to agree with their union bosses about Walmart, but there seems to be a certain lack of solidarity on the Walmart issue between labor lords who stand to get something from new Walmart stores (the Building Trades) and those who make their living demonizing Walmart. (the UFCW and SEIU).   Mums the word on both sides when it comes to the concerns of the other — jobs jobs jobs (actually dues dues dues) on the Building Trades side versus the UFCW’s quixotic quest to organize Walmart by any means necessary.

Quoted in the New York Post one UFCW member who wished not to be named doubted the poll results saying,“They said they contacted union members, but didn’t say which union members were reached. What would members of the steamfitters union care about the grocery store unions?”

Solidarity forever brothers and sisters. Carry on.
