A video posted online appears to show a Verizon picketer placing his young daughter in front of an oncoming truck — presumably carrying non-union employees — and then taunting the passengers with profanity-laced statements.

Union thugs are really outing themselves as enemies to capitalism and even common decency.

Verizon thugs like him only learned from the best, like NJEA, CWA and SEIU members. The only thing these guys are missing are posters comparing Verizon executives to Hitler like they did with Christie and Walker.

Child services needs to step into this situation! Something is definitely wrong when he puts his children in harms way to make his point.

A couple of you guys have mentioned CPS. They will side with the union and swear the strike breakers tried to run over her. The police will visit them, not the strikers.

Upon further review - you’re likely correct.

I mean truly if these guys in the van would have freaked out and hurriedly tried to back up and accidentally hit the gas by mistake, that child may have been taken out and would have resulted in an horrific accident

Ahhh, it brings back fond memories of exactly 30 years ago at Chicago ARTCC.

As one of 22 working controllers (564 were fired) I heard this language for 6 months at the gate. Fun, sometimes tense, but ALWAYS entertaining. PATCO knew how to throw a party, even invited US Marshals.

Damn, I've got some GREAT stories from that six months.

Great! Thanks. What a crazy bad Dad.

This is the fruit of the “for the children” meme the socialists have incessantly used since the 1970’s. The Dad grew up hearing it. Now, after decades of aging and fermenting, it becomes a willingness to sacrifice one’s own children. “For the Children!”

I'm not well versed on all things union, by why doesn't Verizon just fire them all and replace them with people who want to work, especially in this economy?

Are there some legal reasons why they can't do that?

Looks like a clear-cut case of child endangerment—where are the folks from Child Protective Services? Oh that’s right, they’re unionized state employees. Can’t be bothered with a CWA or IBEW thug who deliberately put his child in the path of a car; the CPS gang is too busy persecuting suburban parents who yelled at their kids in public, or gave them a swat on the butt because they were acting out in a department store.

Pretty sad - the lesson he has taught his own child is that her life is not as important as his paycheck. That is one sick father.

Father of the year material. Should be arrested, obvious child endangerment. On the other hand one can hope he expanded his daughter's vocabulary.

LOL, true. Back in jr. college, I was part of 2 unions and I hated them. The union rep for one of them was like the Sopranos’ had a casting call for “goon”. It was truly a cliche..

If we all want to really hurt the strikers then we should all switch to Sprint. Then Verizon will have to lay them off.

I don’t know everything about unions but I grew up in an IBEW family.

Union members work under a contract with the employer. That contract gives the workers the right to strike if a new contract satisfactory to the union has not been signed. They do not get paid while striking, and temporary workers can fill their positions if they are willing to brave the thugs that block entrances to the business. But the union workers cannot be fired and must be allowed to return to work if they want to. Labor laws allow the union employees to disrupt business by blocking entrances and intimidating customers, vendors, etc. as long as they do not actually enter the property. If a business goes non-union, other unrelated unions like teamsters will also try to sabotage that business by refusing to deliver freight, catering, or whatever to that business. They won’t cross each others picket lines. Also, most government contracts require that the contractor be union — which in the case of Verizon means that the company would lose all those contracts if it tried to go non-union.

I know this because I retired after 30 years with SBC. The union routinely called the cops on strike breakers for all types of things, then they would go hack saw cables to make outages in key areas. After all, they knew the most valuable spots to knock things out to take the longest to repair.

Off topic a little,.....This is why I oppose independents having access to phone company cable records. If a contractor just got paroled, do you really want him to access cable records to a bank or pharmacy to find the burglar alarm pairs?

What a coward. Stand in front of the truck yourself. Don’t shove your daughter in front and scream at the workers.

I wonder if the father of the year drives a Union-made vehicle like Verizon had in the clip or a non-union import?
