Skip to comments.Big Labor Watch: “Open season” on Verizon

Union thugs are up to their old tricks sabotage, deceit, intimidation, feces-hurling, you name it as a labor dispute between the Communications Workers of America and Verizon festers.
As usual, the left-wing civility police have gone AWOL.
Last week, the company reported destroyed cable lines and theft across several states:
The CWA has declared open season on managers and scabs, Syracuse NY-based News Channel 9 reports:
It is open season. Follow them safely, but when you get to a location, torture them, torture them with chants and noise. Be so loud that they cant concentrate and wish they never got out of bed, says the recorded voice.
The watchdogs at Labor Union Report have been keeping track and report at BigGovernment.com on a violence-infused and sabotage-promoting internal e-mail allegedly from a CWA officer:
"The company is using out of state cars/vehicles that are unmarked except for verizon door magnets. There is a possibility that other Unions may be accessing our facilities whether building or manhole. If they are you may first beat them repeatedly with a tire iron then advise them that we are on strike."
A new mobilization is to get everyone in the habit of calling repair several specific times a day. For example, some at 10am others at 11am etc. to keep a steady and disruptive volume of calls slowing the companies ability to take real ones. Have everyone dial *67 first if they are nervous about their number being tracked. A direct number to repair is xxx-xxx-xxxx in case the 800 # is busy. A direct fios number is xxx-xxx-xxxx. We can start our own time table to do this. I think the biggest part is to get EVERY member doing it at different times through out the day."

Hopefully, Verizon refuses to give in and lets them keep destroying property. When customers call to complain they have no tv/phone/internet, simply tell them that their valued employee are destroying property and making fake calls to delay repairs.
The gov’t is behind this; you can bet on it; the gov’t is determined there will be only one phone company....AT&T because AT&T is, for all practical purposes, the gov’ts phone company. The gov’t is all over AT&T records and uses AT&T equipment to monitor all activity across AT&T systems. And of course, you can bet Apple Computer is behind this as well.
The company's response was simply to stop all negotiations until the violence stopped. The union FINALLY got the message and ended up settling for a dollar an hour less than the previous offer.
I like that, there has to be a tool to shut this union down.
a permaent impass due to vexatious conduct which allows the company to proceed with permanent replacements.
