Union Free Radio, Ep. 8: Five Types Of Union Corruption That Hurts All Union Members


“There is no odor so bad as that which arises from goodness tainted.” — Henry David Thoreau

When corrupt union bosses are in charge, all union members suffer.

Today, the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor Management Standards is planning to do a “public outreach” campaign to let the public know that unions are not as corrupt as they tend to seem.

That’s all well and good.

However, with the recent sentencing of two former United Auto Workers presidents to prison in the last two months, union corruption is alive and well–and, in the case of the UAW, it is union members who will be paying the price for years to come.

In this episode of Union Free Radio, host Peter List talks about the five basic types of union corruption and shares examples of each.
