Some tweets about this:
Hey @IBEW, Obama just said you should be fired for striking. https://twitter.com/nbcwashington/status/385782823384547328 … Can we get your comment on this?

IBEW response:

“the right to strike is protected activity under the NLRA”
and
“When we do strike, we usually know what we are striking over. You might want clarify THAT”

I worked in a factory back in the 70’s that had wildcat strikes all the time for no reason except to get a few days off.

3-4 days later we would go back to work and claim it was over unsettled grievances.

Company of 3000 workers was driven out of business with silly crap like that.
