Unions respond in time of crisis

For themselves, that is:
Decatur Utilities crews home after issues with union - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

More worried about whether you're union or not than getting power back on to a devastated area with more bad weather on the way. What a bunch of SOBs.

Very typical.

Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

So, you're against unions, but drive a union made vehicle?

Good for them. If ford is willing to pay and support, by all means it is there business. Still doesn't mean I support it. I have never supported unions nor will I in the future.

You dont support unions but I assume you work a mon-fri job 8 hours a day, get paid time and a half for overtime, get a paid vacation, and paid holidays. If you dont then go right ahead and bash unions all you want. If you do they're the people to thank for that.

in my state unions keep lazy people's jobs safe and the hard workers pay scale at a freeze( wifes a teacher with a masters plus ... no pay increase for years

She dropped out of the union forever ago for good reason ,, I asked them some questions at a meeting and they freaked out ..

but last month a Teacher who all agree has no business teaching demanded representation from the union,, She paid Her dues for good reason .. She sucks at Her job

luckily I live in a right to work state and owe nothing to them

If that's what it was all about, then life would be good and people would love unions. They've gone so far away from this that even their own supporters have started to leave in flocks.

I work 12-15 hr days up to 7 days a week, as far as I am concerned unions are no better than organized crime running a protection racket.....and they are not very good at doing that even.

A couple of reasons I hate unions, my post from another forum.

The only time I have ever been writen up for working too hard was when I was working a union job.
Another time ( same union , same job ) a coworker was dragged into the station managers office by the union reps because he was not wearing the gloves that the company provided under contract, the thing was he could not wear them.....his hands were too big so he was buying his own gloves and the union did not like it.
The reps were laughed out of the office.

So, again, let me get this straight. For the ones that hate unions, you are still supporting them by purchasing FORD trucks. I guess I don't understand something here.
