Wonderful news! Although, NLRB must be preparing a lawsuit.

Unions destroy every business and/or industry that they infect. Everyone who votes to unionize should at least understand this as they vote. Historical fact is historical fact.

A lot of people work at a Target or Walmart part-time or after retirement for a little extra cash. Why should they have to be strapped with union dues?

Also, when I was in college I had some friends whose parents worked at the local Miller brewery. They all got summer jobs paying about $15.00 an hour, this in the early 90’s. They were telling us how great it was as they really didn't do anything. Until they got their first checks and saw how much went directly to the union! The brewery closed a few years later and left tons out of work. All their union did was take and left the workers high and dry.

This is one of the most blatantly biased articles that I have ever read. It consists mainly of quotes from unions and supporters. Why would a “news” article about a vote in New York discuss a “small protest” in Arkansas?

“Target did everything they could to deny these workers a chance at the American Dream,”

Here’s a statement that, coming from a union organizer, we know is complete crap without ever looking at any evidence. Nothing a union does has anything to do with “The American Dream”!

I would like to work on this headline.. Unions collectively emptied their coffers during Obama’s election. Now with one empty pocket, they desperately attempt to take advantage of the bad economy to promise workers anything for union fees. Most especially in states that are not “right to work” . They know they must come up with mo money for 2012, so they are blitzing. Union bumper sticker: I heart mandatory union dues.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500 also said it would contest the results and ask the federal government to order a new election, alleging that Target illegally intimidated workers. Target denied the union's allegations.

As opposed to the unions legally intimidating the workers to vote FOR the unions.

"Target did everything they could to deny these workers a chance at the American Dream," said Bruce W. Both,
Yeah, right Brucie.
I guess (Cue Spooky Music) 'Management', Water-boarded 62% of the workers so they'd vote NO.

ps: Brucie, can I have some of what you're smoking?

I don’t understand this. The Unions say they are “for the worker.” These workers don’t want to join. Continuing to press them is against the workers’ desires, it seems to me.

Reminds me of a kid who followed me through a store parking lot to try to sell me “magazine subscriptions.” I kept saying no; he kept pressing. I finally had to tell him, “Look, I’m not going to give you a penny. Why don’t you spend your time looking for someone else who might?”

The Union needs to move on to another pigeon who might be more ripe for the plucking and leave Target alone.

What bothers me about this is the UFCW..lost the vote, and yet they rush off to the courthouse for a “do-over”.

Very Liberal of them, keep filing lawsuits until you win.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union is underrated for the amount of underhanded , dirty and illegal tactics they use, including sending members to Wal-Mart stores to fill carts with perishable goods, abandon the cart and walk out of the store. This has happened in stores in my area resulting in thousands of dollars of meat and other goods to have to be thrown away.

Wal-Marts policy is to throw away all such goods as they have no way of being sure just how long the goods have sat unrefrigerated.

These workers who rejected the union were smart... but it would be wise of Target to give really lousy schedules to the workers who pushed for unionization... just in case anyone else wants to try this again.

Both sides said the workers at Target’s Valley Stream store voted 137-85 against unionization>>>>>>>>>

The would be union will get nowhere contesting this kind of lopsided vote

Sheesh. Didn't Bruno show up with the "found" 100 votes for unionization?
