New York’s Teamsters Local 237 to bus in support to union protestors in Wisconsin
daily caller ^ | 2/21/11 | Corky Siemaszko

Posted on 02/21/2011 5:39:40 PM PST by Nachum

The Wisconsin workers who have staged a week-long protest against their union-busting governor are getting some Big Apple reinforcements.

Teamsters Local 237, which represents various city workers, intends to “bus a couple hundred” members to Madison – possibly this week, Deputy Director Pete Gutierrez told The Daily News.

Sounds expensive. Where are they getting the money to do that?

Oh. Right. The New York taxpayers.

You Wisconsinites should play a little joke on The Teamsters. Right at your state line you should put up a sign that says, "Wisconsin Left". Then they'll turn around and go home.

Heh, heh. Because they're Teamsters, y'see, and when they see the sign that says Wisconsin left they'll just.....(sigh).....never mind.....

They sound like environmental criminals burning up all that diesel fuel and emitting all that CO2.

Can’t they attend the protest via Skype or GoToProtest.com

What is very obvious to me is that the Sleazy Dems left town to give the other unions time to get to Wisconsin. They say they want discussion yet they don’t bother to discuss. They just wanted to stall for reinforcements. I’m sick of minority rule and this is a prime example.

Birds of a feather.

Letting government employees unionize makes about as much sense as hiring Michael Moore to be night watchman at the Twinkie factory.

They’re bringing in the big time thugs. The protests have been peaceful for the most part, they won’t be after this crowd arrives.

After 5 days of protest and sleeping in the capitol rotunda, things are getting very ripe.

I hope they send the clean up bill to the unions.

Tea party members cleaned up after themselves.

Maybe you should warn them that complaints have been filed for making a mess and sleeping overnight.

Hopefully, the Captitol Police will regain control and throw the bums out (at least at night).

The GOP majority needs to start passing non-revenue bills that the RATs really don’t want. Like right to work law and voter ID. Punish them while they are gone. Plus..cancel their state credit cards and declare their state cars stolen.

Where are they getting the money to do that?

If one could trace the money my bet is that it is coming from the DNC or Soros. Never allow a good crisis to go to waste.

Some of these NY/NJ Union protesters are so wacky the would rather do this than go on a vacation. With the Jets losing, they are still in a bad mood.

I’ll say one thing about the Teamsters, they are more than just talk or cash suppliers. Back in the middle 1960’s I was a member of the Insurance debit salesman’s very weak union striking Metropolitan Life Insurance at Madison Square NYC. The Teamster’s, along with the Longshoremen and the Teacher’s helped us picket. Quite a culture clash.

Here comes the goon squad!

I used to be in the Teamsters and, believe it or not, that was an official unofficial position. I know because they tried to recruit me into it (because of my intimidating size in those days).

You ask what were your official duties as a permanent Teamo goon (they had temps who would get promoted to permanent goon if they were good enough)? Well, you’d hang around headquarters all day and go out and bust heads when called upon by higher-ups to do so, which I take it was fairly often. It had its dangers, but sweet gig, huh? Pay was more than a regular driver could make and all your legal expenses would be paid if you ever faced charges for anything you did in your official capacity as a member of the goon squad. I declined the offer to join.

This group headed to Wisconsin? I guarantee you, a significant number of them, if not all of them, will be members of the goon squad.

I would love for a reporter on the ground to ask some key questions:

Where is the Rathskellar? The UW Union
What are the 5 lakes of Madison? Monona, Mendota, Wingra, Kegonsa, Waubesa
What is the name of the land between the two largest ones? the isthmus
Where is the farmers market held? The square
Who was the Pail and Shovel gang? UW student govt of the 70s
This will ferret out the carpetbaggers!

They just wanted to stall for reinforcements.

And while all the union thugs are busy in Wisconsin, about 10 other states will pass similar laws including Ohio, Indiana, and Tennessee.

This is the point of no return. Walker knows he can not give in. He must stand firm and resolute because if the Unions get one single concession, they will pull this bullying crap in every single instance this moment forward. And it won’t be just Unions. These liberal fools are using Egypt as their inspiration to protest. Just wait and see what they do when healthcare is repealed.

I had an office in the Sperry Building next to Radio City.
We sold printing presses and service out of that location.
The union hit me for wages and more and more bennies for service (not sales). I fired them all and moved to Edison, NJ. Saved a ton. Got promoted too.

NY City is a different world.
It is so quick you better be able to respond or they will burry you.
Frankly, I loved it.
