    Well we are going to have more decline in the union work force. Seems that Verizon is going to sell the wire part. That will get rid of the union on that part. By the end of this year there wont be 6% union work force

    It never ends.

    Ed, next time you need electrical work done, hire an untrained non union scab.

    I'm sure you will sleep better knowing you may meet your maker soon.

    We never hire union, it's a matter of fact that we support busting the SOCIALIST union lines. How is your local economy? Pay your union dues.....Ed

    You are not allowed to question superiors it is not in your union contract, ask your union steward.
    I have a union assignment for you to investigate and WE will compare the efficiency to that of the NON-union investigators...

    Brigrade, not worried about losing money as I'm retired. But you seem to have a fixation on unions. Did your wife or girl friend run off with a union man?

    Why does someone being union make them a terrorist?

    What would you call those strikebreakers that used baseball bats and axe handles to clear out Ford Motor Company when the sit down strikes occurred years ago?

    I would imagine they were your hero's. When in fact they were nothing more than hired goons not fit to sit upright and take nourishment.

    Or you can hire a non-union, trained, licensed, electrician that doesn't blindly vote for Democratic candidates and support government handout programs. They are out there. No Obama supporting union thugs will do any work for me.

    Just ask them up front if they are union members. If so, no thanks. It isn't rocket science (well maybe it would be for a union member). Unions and people like them are/will be the downfall of this country.

    Hey Double Auto have you ever heard of descrimination? That's what you do when you ask if the potential employees are union or not. Aounds like you don't like unions but you must love lawyers the way you will have to pay them to keep your company out of trouble with the National Labor Relations Boards. Dan

    Ed, let a union electrician check your shorts.

    That was a dumb remark you made. If you didn't understand unsafe wiring I know now why you don't understand unions. This has been gone over on this forum over and over, so I won't cast my pearls before swine. (hope you get the reference.)

    Thanks for giving me a "company" which I don't have. There is work to be done outside of "companies". Just like a union suck up to go from wiring to the NLRB. Your union must have taught you very well how to think. "Discrimination, Discrimination". Sounds like what certain other special interest groups yell and hide behind all the time. Birds of a feather flock together.

    Dahaub,

    I can't resist asking the question:

    Why is inquiring about an individual's union status and refusing to hire a union member discrimination ?

    Please enlighten me.

    Here we are again fighting about unions. I find most union haters don't know much about unions. Simular to gun haters knowing nothing about guns. Brigade, I've seen other posts were you bashed unions and never gave any good reasoning behinds your arguments. Union jobs, in general, pay more and have better benefits. Do you union haters dislike better wages and benfits? Union haters argue that unions ruin companies but don't give any explaination on who ruins non-union companies.

    Let me give this a try. I don't dislike or hate union members. I have two very good friends that are union guys. What I don't get is this: how can guys that are smart enough to work in the trades(I'm a tool and die maker, so I understand the trades)be led like dumbass sheep to the poles to vote for the very Democrats that raise their taxes and want to take away their guns and freedom. My two friends have no good explanation for this.They have both been union for ever and always voted Republican. The guys they work with get almost violent when you bash a Democrat. Like I said, otherwise intelligent people who don't seem to have the ability to make a decision for themselves. I don't get it.I do, however, have a feeling that I will get some response. Go ahead sheep, defend away. JK(maybe)

    It is easier to feel like you are being led, than think for yourselves. Thats my explanation anyway. I agree with Steve in the above posts. I worked union most of my life, but it was only because of my friends that I joined and they are just like Steves friends. The union was the straw that broke the camels back at Firestone Des Moines plant. They took the workers down with them on the last strike when they were changed over to Bridgestone.

    unions are ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT and ANTI-CAPITALIST. They support a muslim for president they vote for people like pelosi, boxer, schumer, feinstein, reid, franken, dodd and frank. Now, that is why I do not like unions. How is your local union economy? Ed.
