    WalMart #BlackFriday Strikers Could Be Replaced—Permanently.

    By the time you read this, the post-Thanksgiving shopping day known as “Black Friday” will largely be over. However, among the fights over Barbie dolls and home theater systems, in what has become an all-too-predictable post-Thanksgiving tradition, union-sponsored protests occurred all over the nation at dozens of WalMart stores. While the union protests are predominantly attended by non-employee, union-paid protestors (aka astroturf), some of the protestors are, in fact, striking WalMart employees.

  • Do Union Members Know How Underfunded Their Union Pensions Really Are?

    Do Union Members Know How Underfunded Their Union Pensions Really Are?

    Across the nation, many union pension funds are critically underfunded. Unfortunately, however, it appears that some union members may not realize just how critical their union pension funds are. By way of example, on a recent post on the LaborUnionReport Facebook page, one union member felt inclined to brag about his union pension fund—going so far as to call it “great.” A quick look at the individual’s ‘about’ page on Facebook revealed that he is currently a member of the […]

The workers did not vote for unionization; there were no union cards signed. Rather, the new union members were handed over to the SEIU by having Massachusetts state officials reclassify hundreds of managers’ positions into the union. via NAGE SEIU. […]

    Volkswagen Opens Door To Employees For Self-Representation

    In what appears to be a huge setback for the United Auto Workers (UAW), Volkswagen in Chattanooga issued a new policy on Wednesday entitled “Community Organization Engagement” which opens the door for VW employees who want alternative representation without the UAW. While the UAW is wrongly touting VW’s new policy (posted in full below) as a means of making it easier for the UAW to unionize VW’s workers in Chattanooga, in reality, the policy gives employees opposed to the UAW […]

County officials say the culprits disconnected electricity inside the building before targeting a circuit box, wiring and cables installed by a subcontractor.

    Diabolical Unions Use ‘Living Wage’ Schemes To Betray And Undermine Workers

    Across the nation, unions are using so-called ‘living wage’ campaigns as part of a scheme to unionize workers. However, behind their humanitarian-sounding living wage campaigns is a heinous plot that puts workers into unions, but betrays them by affording unionized employers the ability to pay less than the unions’ so-called living wage. Although the defnition of a living wage has always been rather subjective (e.g., “A living wage is a decent wage.”), unions like the Service Employees International Union and […]
