    Mixed Marxist Messages: Communist Revolutionaries Blend #BlackFriday Protests With #Ferguson Protests

    “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” — Rahm Emanuel On the heels of last week’s Ferguson riots over a grand jury decision to not indict police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown, protestors disrupted shoppers during their annual Black Friday shopping spree. The Ferguson protestors seemed to time their protest with the annual union-sponsored Black Friday protests that occur every year in various cities around the U.S. In Ferguson, Getty photographer Joshua Lott captured two individual protestors […]

  • WalMart #BlackFriday Strikers Could Be Replaced—Permanently.

    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. What is their beef with the nation’s largest […]

  • 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 […]

    Worse than Card-Check: Mass Bureaucrats Give SEIU Affiliate Hundreds Of New Members

    With the stroke of the proverbial pen, Massachusetts bureaucrats just gave hundreds of new members and hundreds of thousands of new union dues dollars to the National Association of Government Employees, an affiliate of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). 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

    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 […]

    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

    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 […]
