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.

Teamsters Throw Salt in the Wound

Struggling Republic Airways lost $55 million in the first quarter of this year, and developed a $120 million plan to restructure the finances of part of its business, Frontier Airlines. The restructure included concessions from the Frontier Airline Pilots Association, which they agreed to.

However, the Teamsters took the issue to court, filing a lawsuit asking the U.S. District Court in Denver to nullify the agreement, and to file an injunction forcing Frontier and Republic to deal only with the Teamsters, who won representation in June for all of Republic’s pilot groups. The Teamsters contend that Frontier and Republic Airways conspired to interfere with the election in exchange for FAPA agreeing to the concessions.
