This timem it was the longshoremen in Washington that destroyed property and held people hostage. Why are they doing it?
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that’s staffing a workforce of other union laborers.
Get that? They have the “RIGHT” to do the work, but the employer has no business, let alone the right, to hire whomever they want within what the law allows, even if those other people are also unionized! In case you think the Longshoremen union has a right as they claim and the employer is in the wrong, let me point out the following little details that put things into perspective:
The blockade appeared to defy a federal restraining order issued last week against the union after it was accused of assaults and death threats.
This isn’t something that came out of the blue. This is likely the end game of something that has been going on for years, and that the union lost since it is obvious that the feds basically have told the union they are wrong and should back off. Yeah, the same feds that told Boeing they could not relocate work to their new plant in NC, where thousands of jobs would be crated, because the unions in Washington feared much of the work would be moved there to avoid dealing with the hassle and pain they cause, told the unions they have no case and to back off. A lot of good that warning did them though. After all, we still have unionized workers doing the work. I suspect the reason the Longshoremen union didn’t care about the warning from the feds is because, as the article points out, there have been no repercussions for both destruction of property and hostage taking, and there very likely will not be any either. It’s not as if their bought & paid for govenment stooges will actually take action against them. Get real.
Shit, these guys have no compunction of being violent when it affects other unionized workers! Anyway, will the LSM be telling this story? Accusing these people of engaging in terrorism against an employer whose crime is to have picked other union to do the work, of all things? Heh, just asking to make the point. We know the answer. Maybe this is some of that “war” Hoffa told us was coming the other day? Sure sounds like blue on blue action there, with other people, likely the tax payers, again picking up the tab.
