Testimonials

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!!!

Teamsters Watch

Teamsters in New York apparently staged another work slow down during a snow storm, once again coinciding with stalled contract negotiations. Town Supervisor John Coyne was forced to declare a state of emergency to force the employees to get to work clearing roads.

Hoffa

In Chicago, an attorney contemplated suing the Teamsters when he was forced to pay $1200 to use “approved” contractors to move his office into a new location, rather than the moving contractor he had secured for $500. The building lease contained a clause forcing tenants to submit any requests to use contractors to the building management, effectively creating a “secondary boycott.” In essence, the building is colluding with the union to keep non-union labor (ie. less expensive) out of the building.

In another display of Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa’s complete ignorance of economics, he has promised to “hold accountable” those congressmen who approved three recent free-trade agreements. Hoffa’s position stands at odds with Obama, who finally got behind the trade deals with South Korea, Columbia, and Panama.
