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.

I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

“It will take direct action. It will take us being willing to face arrest. It will take us being willing to be part of marches and demonstrations,” King told a crowd of 500 cheering UAW retirees many of whom may need assistance getting back up if they  do indeed dare to attempt a sit-down protest.  King announced the UAW is joining with SEIU, Occupy Wall Street and other class warfare crusaders to create a new “movement
