To hell with the secret ballot ping to the Today show list.
Collectivist/criminals/con-men/liars/deceivers/parasites/socialists/anti-freedom THUGS BUMP!
Believe me, while most of our local leaders were pretty good guys with whom we worked side by side, the union leadership at the national level cared NOTHING for rank and file. Most of our membership was comprised of technicians and inspectors, many of whom were retired military people, and mostly quite conservative.
Try this one on for size: our international president, the late and unlamented William Winpisinger, actually endorsed (of all people) the Rev'rund Jackson for President of the United States at the 1988 Democratic National Convention. The local membership was outraged. So much for looking out for our interests.
Note the intimidation going on by union members in the hall. They are illustrating the points those against the bill are trying to make.
This is just incredible.
