"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.

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

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.

Additionally, I expressed, based on first hand experience, disappointment that labor leaders seem more interested in their own power than the rank and file.

I also suggested that unions dont OWN any particular jobs. They should compete and if, as you claim, they do it better they win the work.

I did not advocate for the banning of unions all I suggested was the portion of dues monies spent on political action should be directed by the MEMBER, not the BA or international etc. What's wrong with that?

N it sure what that has to do with anything, why would the Afl-Cio support a president and party that is killing UMW jobs?

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

Unions needs to support workplace rules that allow better workers to get better pay. This stuff about all the brotherhood making the same cash is BS.

Also, Obamacare has removed the need for Unions to negotiate heeath care benefits.

Don't hate unions, I have respect for the men and women on the line. I hate corrupt union bosses who are only interested in their own power and influence. AFLCIO supports Obama, Obama destroying UNION jobs in the coal fields.

Unions should compete and not try to control the work..Right to work is a good thing, and if Union trades are superior they will win in a fair market.
