    The UAW has their mitts in a lot of different unions. The dealers in A.C. are part of the UAW. Boosts numbers. Good luck Chuck Hrosik

    All corupt organizations/governments have know that its the "youth" that you need in order to continue your deceptions!

    Just look at world history, all cause's required that the youth be brainwashed into "their" way!

    Unions have out lived their need to exist, KEEP them away for your/our youths!

    I disagree. No one wants to return to the pre union working conditions.

    Unions need to be cleaned up. Much of their corruption comes from the same mindset as politics. Individuals get to high positions and perceive themselves to be rulers rather than representatives, and put their snout deep into the trough.

    The rank and file, as also the voters, need to me more aware of their leadership.

    Halfmile,


    Union graft has been going on since their inception. It won't go away. Union NEVER does anything the rank and file wants or needs. Pre union working conditions will never happen again because there are so many attorneys today. Time to outlaw unions as a hate group.

    Ever hear of the Yablonski family?????

    I was a union member when the unions were putting TV commercial's about buying the union label.

    Hadn't seen the lite yet so I in my brainwashed state of mind went out and brought work clothes that had the "union label" on them, BIG mistake! Had to go out and buy NEW clothes before the week was out! Most of the shirts didn't even last one day on the job, pants lasted maybe 2 days!

    Hardest jobs on clothes; logging and cattle ranching.

    Oh ya, after I left my union job, I found out what "real" work was all about, glad I learned while I was still young! I stayed employed longer then my union buddy's did, for years and years.

    I try to buy American made work boots, usually Red Wings. The last pair I bought was American made by Carolina. They were union made in my home state of Pennsylvania. Win-win, I thought. American work boots for me, and a boost for the working folks close to my family. Worst boots I've ever had. Worn out in 10 months, and they never did break in well. Union labor was poorly represented with those boots.

    I should note that I work in the oil industry, and I'm on my feet a lot. We are hard on boots. My friend wears Chinese made Wolverines, and he is on his third year. A sad statement.

    I have a pair of Whites packers. Best boots ever. It would break my heart to get them soaked with crude oil or produced water, though. I guess I'll stick with the Red Wings.

    Unions expanded the middle class in America. As union ranks shrink, so does the middle class. We are on a course for a two class system, upper and lower (haves and have nots). Control your bias and pay attention to what's happening. Corruption occurs when people are apathetic, whether it's in a union or government. Most U.S. elections are decided by less than 1/3 of eligible voters, including union elections.

    What people on this site don't understand is theres a difference between government unions and working unions. As a union member I can say that I contribute to my health and retirement accounts. Most of the problems are with teachers, police, and fire fighters who contribute little to their pensions and health care. Theres a big difference and people need to realize it. Good luck Chuck Hrosik

    Now I understand Chuck's position on Obama on another thread. Spoken like a true Liberal Dem Union member. Thank you for helping elect the village idiot.

    Gee Don, didn't really see you as a closed minded fool. Guess I was wrong. You must be the guy who is almost in the urinal afraid someone will see his really small penis but meat gazes at mine when I come in. Having a small pecker is ok. You dont have to overcompensate by calling others names. Did it make you feel good? After you take your Centrum Silver and soak your dentures you'll have a good laugh about what you did today on TS.

    If a company can be forced to go or be unionized, why can't it be reversed? If the union doesn't represent the rank and file, Why don't the members vote them OUT!

    People who'es wages(public service) are pay by taxes should never have been allowed to unionize! Even though they themselves pay taxes.

    History of our unions:

    Started out a racist groups like the KKK then went after "safty" in the workplace(a good thing) but wound up getting greedy and courpt. They have more Ideology linked with socialism then with American Ideology.

    Sorry if the truth hurts! Again I WAS a union member, but I saw the lite before I got brainwashed!

    1. The UAW owns the Democratic Party in Michigan, and represents a large number of unionized Michigan state employees.

    2. Democratic Governor Granholm's administration created a sham council to speak for the state's licensed day care providers.

    3. The council subsequently asked the UAW to organize the providers.

    4. Most providers knew nothing about any of this until they received their unionization ballot in the mail. Few responded, but the majority of those who did voted for the union.

    5. The state and union then negotiated a closed shop. The providers had to join the union, or pay a representation fee.

    6. These providers are independent, very small business people providing child care in their homes. They're scattered all over the state. Although the unionization is being challenged in court, the chance for effective, coordinated political action to reverse it is minuscule.

    7. The state of Michigan sends a lot of taxpayer dollars to the providers to pay for day care for eligible children. The providers pay union dues to the UAW. The UAW sends a lot of dollars to the Democrats.

    Any questions?
