"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

BobBarker...i have read the account of the crucifixion in the bible several times and i don't believe that is the reason why they killed Jesus. perhaps you may wish to quote someone with some sense about themselves.

Again VW wants the union, find the information from the company itself, and Bob, Rikki don't like cookies, he prefers paste....

Bottom line: Your brothers and sisters will make less, thanks to the predominance of your attitude.

Congratulations.

The irony is, that someone who presumably is a working person, would be crowing about a corporation "Chop(ing) Labor Costs in U.S."

Sorry about multi post, trying new device, so if you vote union the state will stop tax breaks, if you vote union , the rethuglican senator will use his powers and the ones that back him to stop production of a SUV, all that and still UAW only needed about 50 votes to organize, so there will more than likely be another vote, but what gets me is VW wanted union organization.....tell me again how Rikki, Bob, Dave and Charlie are pro american worker, eat more paste rikki

Many viewed VW as the union's only chance to gain a crucial foothold in the South because other automakers have not been as welcoming as Volkswagen. Labor interests make up half of the supervisory board at VW in Germany, and they questioned why the Chattanooga plant is the only one without formal worker representation. VW wanted a German-style "works council" in Chattanooga to give employees a say over working conditions. The company says U.S. law won't allow it without an independent union.

In Chattanooga, the union faced stern opposition from Republican politicians who warned that a UAW victory would chase away other automakers who might come to the region.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee was the most vocal opponent, saying that he was told that VW would build a new midsized SUV in Chattanooga if workers rejected the union. That was later denied by a VW executive. Other politicians threatened to cut off state incentives for the plant to expand if the union was approved

United we stand, divided we fall For every dime they give us a battle must be fought So working people use your power the key to liberty Don't support the rich man's style of luxury

There ain't no way they can ever keep us down There ain't no way they can ever keep us down We won't be bought, we won't be sold To be treated right, well that's our goal There ain't no way they can ever keep us down

We've been shot, we've been jailed, lord its a sin Women and children stood right by the men We've got a union contract that keeps the worker free They'll never shoot that union out of me

They'll never shoot that union out of me, oh no They'll never shoot that union out of me Got a contract in our hand signed by the blood of honest men They'll never shoot that union out of me

The power wheel is rolling, rolling right along The government is keep it going going strong so working people get your help from your own kind Your welfare on the rich man's mind

Your welf

BobBarker:10. Labor Power is Suppressed Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed., the derp quotient is strong in R1D1, he is a disciple of the nrtw4nuthin....

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Count unanimously ruled in favor of United States Steel Corp., finding the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker does not have to pay unionized steel workers for the time spent "donning and doffing" safety gear before and after their shifts.

Pay to change your clothes.. go figure

Look up the past history of the UAW at the Lordstown plant of GM.

Thugs at work my friend.

It might be better now, but it was a union made*****hole years past. The plant was almost shut down due to union antics.

Should a Pipefitter and a bagger at Walmart really be in the same union?
