    Former AFL-CIO Organizing Director: “Cops Are Pawns Who Should Suffer…” #Ferguson

    While the facts of the Ferguson, Missouri police shooting of an unarmed man are in still question and riots are still going on, liberals and conservatives alike have been opining on the events. While the current AFL-CIO boss, Richard Trumka, released a relatively bengign statement last week, former AFL-CIO Organizing Director Stewart Acuff, who has always been loud-spoken, took to Twitter this week to voice his disdain for the police. The cops are pawns who should suffer for what they […]

  • Poor Performers: Forced-Union States At The Bottom Of Manufacturing GDP Growth

    Poor Performers: Forced-Union States At The Bottom Of Manufacturing GDP Growth

    There are several factors that cause employment gains and losses across states, regions, as well as nations. Political climates, tax and regulatory burdens, as well as union density are among the factors that can affect a state’s employment. Whether or not a state has laws that prohibit unions from requiring union fees as a condition of employment (aka Right-to-Work laws) appears to be another factor that impacts job growth (or decline) in the manufacturing sector, according to the National Right […]

    SEIU-Backed ObamaCare Helps Cause SEIU-Represented Hospital To Cut 10% Of Full-Time Staff

    With ex-SEIU boss Andy Stern having taken credit for the passage of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare, the irony of an SEIU-represented hospital cutting 10% of its full-time staff, in part, due to ObamaCare is rich. via The Mental Recession. Early last month, ENH [East Niagara Hospital] announced that they would have to cut over 10% of their full time staff, as well as being forced to consolidate their inpatient care and surgical services.  Full-time staff will be cut from […]

    13 Unions Vote To Strike Golden Gate Bridge

    Well, unless management ‘caves in’ to the unions’ demands (which is often the case in California), this could get interesting… All 13 unions within the Golden Gate Bridge Labor Coalition voted Monday night to strike, which would shut down ferry and bus service, but no date for the labor action was announced and they are continuing to bargain in good faith with the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District. Bridge employees have been working without a contract since July […]

    Charter school teachers unionized by the…Teamsters?!?

    If a history of corruption and mafia influence are the topics, there will be a lot for these teachers to teach, given their new union afilliation. via telegram.com. Eighty teachers and guidance counselors at the Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School in Marlboro recently made history when they joined a union — but not the one you might think. They did not join the Massachusetts Teachers Association, which represents 110,000 public school educators across the commonwealth. Nor did they […]

  • Unions See Red Over Obama-EPA’s  Job & Economy Killing Green Rules

    Unions See Red Over Obama-EPA’s Job & Economy Killing Green Rules

    Why union bosses spent billions on a President and political party known to be targeting their jobs and pocketbooks is anyone’s guess. Nevertheless, it seems that some unions are beginning to awaken to the fact that the agenda being pushed by the Obama Administration is, in fact, harmful to their (economic) health. In addition to UNITE-HERE (again) blasting ObamaCare, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers appears to be having problems with the President’s Environmental Protection Agency and its plan to […]

    About Face? SEIU Pumps Guns To Members For Politics

    One would think that, after paying protesters to protest against the National Rifle Association, the nation’s most Marxist progressive union wouldn’t want its name associated with giving away guns…or, in this case, raffling them to some lucky member. SEIU’s Illinois Local 73, which has had prior exposure here, is raffling off a Remington 870 (pump action) shotgun to its members. According to the union’s website, the proceeds will go to benefit Local 73′s Committee on Political Education (COPE). It’s hard […]

    Unions Give New York Mayor More Than $1 Million To Move Their Agenda

    New York’s most recently elected liberal, Mayor has his hands deep in union pockets, according to The Chief: The Campaign for One New York was created by Mayor de Blasio’s political operatives to further his agenda, but judging by its donors, a more apt moniker might be the Committee to Save New York Workers. Since the start of the year, it was reported last week that $1.7 million had been contributed to the fund, with nearly $1 million of that […]
