    Teamster Members Attack Union ‘Fatcats’ and ‘Parasites’ For Misuse of Funds, Lies, Threats & More

    Members of a New York-based Teamsters local blasted their union leadership for raising their own salaries, in addition to misusing union funds, threats and lies, according to fliers handed out at union-represented worksites in the New York area earlier this week. Teamsters local 812, based in Great Neck, New York—a suburb of New York City—represents primarily soft drink and brewery workers. Last year, according to financial records on file with the U.S. Department of Labor, the union claimed 3,504 members. […]

  • IBEW Denies Any Knowledge Of Vandalism At St. Louis Police Precinct

    IBEW Denies Any Knowledge Of Vandalism At St. Louis Police Precinct

    Over the weekend, vandals—who apparently knew their way around electricity—vandalized the electrical work being done on a police precinct in St. Louis. The electrical work was being done by a non-union subcontractor. The IBEW is, of course, denying having any knowledge about the incident. County officials say the culprits disconnected electricity inside the building before targeting a circuit box, wiring and cables installed by a subcontractor. Spools of wire were also missing when the incident was discovered Saturday morning. The […]

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

    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 […]

    SEIU ‘Organizer’ Busted For Possession Of Crack Cocaine, Other Drugs

    Well, this may put a damper on any current union organizing campaigns the SEIU has entrusted to one (possible) lead organizer. While patrolling around the Rath Building in downtown Buffalo, a deputy asked Donna Campagna, a SEIU 1199 Union Organizer from Rochester, to move her vehicle, but the 58-year-old refused. The deputy exited his vehicle to speak with her and noticed her driver’s side mirror was missing, prompting him to initiate a traffic stop. The sheriff’s office says Campagna was […]

  • Not-So-Quiet Unions Spend Billions On Politics ‘The Quiet Way’

    Not-So-Quiet Unions Spend Billions On Politics ‘The Quiet Way’

    With the mid-term election campaigns underway, union bosses are, once again, attacking so-called “right-wing” groups for contributing to candidates and causes. However, in doing so, unions always conveniently leave out the fact that unions themselves spend billions on politics and the vast majority of it is under-reported by the media. Unions spent $4.4 billion on politics between 2005-2011, according to a 2012 Wall Street Journal article. Although the money was reported to the government, according to the Wall Street Journal, […]

    UAW’s ‘Calculated and Deliberate’ Failure To Appeal Decision Cost Visteon Retirees, Court Rules

    Here’s the long and short of it: In 2009, auto-parts supplier Visteon filed for bankruptcy. In so doing, Visteon terminated its retiree benefits. Two unions, the IUE and UAW, fought the benefit termination. Both lost at the bankruptcy court. The IUE appealed, the UAW did not. Due to the IUE’s appeal, the IUE won its appeal and, due to the UAW’s ‘calculated and deliberate’ failure to appeal on behalf of Visteon retirees lost, according to the Court of Appeals for […]

    SEIU Boss Confident Obama’s Executive Amnesty For Aliens “Will Only Be Temporary.”

    Following Barack Obama’s political punt on taking executive action on “immigration reform” until after the mid-term elections, liberal allies are allegedly “furious.” One group, however, is confident that the President will act on his threat to grant unilateral amnesty following the November elections. In a press release issued by the Service Employees International Union, after blaming Republicans for not supporting immigration reform and vowing to “hold them accountable” in November, SEIU boss Mary Kay Henry stated that the White House […]
