These garbage men really stink.
Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts -- a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned.

Details at the link on the specific orders that were given to the union drivers by their bosses. It’s criminal.
criminal charges should be filed...
There is NO WAY that it should be legal for these organizations to buy legislators that take taxpayer money and funnel it to their members, OR to funnel it to those who vote for their handouts. The exhorbitant pay, benefits, and their gold-plated retirement plans have driven most businesses off-shore, where the wages and benefits can allow competitive production. In the case of Government Unions, the extortion is running rampant, and cities, states, and nationally we are bankrupted by the sqeeze of tax-funded payouts.
Convict all union members and bosses. Strip them of pensions and benefits, and jail time.
We need to start using RICO against unions and politicians.
Can charges be filed against the union of some sort.
First victims who may have needed emergency services that died or became disabled,
The city for literal breach of contract with intent to cause harm,
These were indeed criminal actions, premeditated criminal actions with intent to cause harm. Jail time is in order and not just for the union bosses, but for the idiots who followed the orders!!! Common sense & decency told them this was wrong.
A mother who gave birth lost her baby after waiting 9 hours for an ambulance.
Union thugs really suck. We should fire every single one of these bums.
Doesn't matter - it's their way of life; earning three times the wages of the average taxpayer that foots the bill and holding their host in contempt.
Take a page out of Reagan’s book. After the PATCO strike, he fired the lot of them.
There are plenty of people out there who would be happy to take a nice steady well-paying job as a garbage hauler in New York City.
Anyone know if private citizens could file a class action suit against any union that participated in a slowdown?
Blood is on the hands of the sanitation union bosses and the drivers.It certainly seems that way, if this story is true.

Indeed times are hard and the city could very easily replace the criminal union
This NYC story has national implication. I think it would behoove the House Pubbies to look into this with hearings and subpoeae.
I second the motion for House Hearings on this. Let’s show some guts in the House. Let’s stand up for the American people? What say you, Republican Party House members?
Fire them all.
In the meantime I think it would be a good idea for folks to plan to take care of themselves, family, friends, and neighbors. Have an action plan in place for events like this. The plan might not covery every contingency, but it would beat the heck out of waiting for some government agency to rescue you.
The sanitation union leaders could be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of the baby.
If you are going to get rid of these leeches, now is the time to do it. Lots of people out there looking for a steady job. They’ll be more then happy to drive those trucks and clean those streets.
Each of the borough district attorneys should start criminal investigations immediately. Ge the union thugs and their workers under oath and find out who gave the orders for the slowdown.
...except that Obama is no Reagan.Perhaps if Governor Palin tweets about this, the new Tea Party Congress will discover their spines, and investigate this outrage RIGOROUSLY.
I have no doubt that there are plenty of people in New York City who would be happy to replace these losers.
As soon as you find out who did it, if they are an official of the union, then the city should decertify the union.
This is standard operating procedure for these POSes, and they couldn’t care less who is hurt. They’ll simply say “Put more brothers on the job” or “Give us overtime”...
Bloomie has been running around like a chicken with it’s head on fire saying, everything is all right ,just slow.....
Wonder why he’s been covering it up?......maybe because he wants a DC appointment?....hell all he has to do is convert to Islam.....and for this POS, it’s not a leap.
Who's going to do it? Bloomberg? Not a chance. All the politicians are beholden to the unions. This will be swept under the rug and even defended by some of them.
Get ready America! This will be happening all over...
Fire them and hire those looking for a job.
Lot of finger pointing. Some are saying that the city did not want to call in the snow removal crews on Sunday night so they wouldn’t have to pay double time.
Others are blaming the union due to the plan to lay off 400 workers.
NYC -Boss Tweedy days all over again - whowoodthunkit. Corruption by the Unions - come now what isn’t new under the sun. Gee corruption is just part of the everyday politics.
Best thing fore everyone that works with the union - disband the union and all the so called pensions that will solve all NYC problems the union guys will starve in the streets and will have to eat snow.
You can all band together to clear your own cars and the block too but then what? The next block is still deep in the snow.
NYC is unmanageable when you have dems in charge.
Last month the NY Thruway had stranded motorists for approx. 20 hours.
Evidently tax money is good for nothing when it comes to services, it’s only good for ‘programs’ for the so called ‘needy’.
They tried to make it seem as if they slow pace was due to layoffs and budget costs...
The raghead terrorist threat pales in comparison to the red sons of bitches running the unions in the socialist states
Read the story. Union bosses ordered their goons to slow down the snow removal process.
The layoff was only 6% of the sanitation department. 6% is nothing. Unions goons are busted. At least some of the thugs feel guilty about the deaths and burned out homes that were a result of their temper tantrum. Definitely grounds for manslaughter charges for those union bosses who gave the slowdown orders.
You can bet that if there weren’t witnesses there, they would have driven away! I love the way the people yell at them!
Boy, that would hit Tony Soprano in the pocket book.
A 64 year old woman went into the DMV to get her license renewed. She stood at the window for an entire 25 minutes. At first, 3 people were there to help her, but 2 left the room. The one that was left was doing some kind of paperwork.
Eventually, the man came over to her window and snapped "Can I help you?" She said yes, she had to renew her license. He took her through all the paperwork and picture taking. After that was done, he sat down at the computer to finish up, and he noticed her license had been revoked due to a medical issue. The woman explained to the man her license had been reinstated shortly after the incident, about a month earlier, but just got a renewal notice in the mail and thought she should take care of it.
Well, according to this busy man, the computers are 3 months behind. According to this busy man, government union cutbacks are to blame. There aren't enough people to get the work done anymore. He told her she'd have to wait another 3 months to renew.
The woman was pi$$ed. Not only will she have to wait another 3 months to renew her license - she noticed the important paperwork the man was doing after she waited an entire 25 minutes for him. The "important paperwork" the guy was doing was a crossword puzzle!
This whole debacle needs to be put under a microscope and the participants under oath.
A newborn Baby died. The Union Bosses should be thrown in jail and charged with manslaughter.
State wide, only 1% of the government union members have been laid off. In Elmira NY, the government union employees are going to hold a candle light vigil for these poor lost souls tonight. I kid you not.
And while we are at it let’s unionize the TSA. Let’s give union bosses the power to cripple the nations airlines and paralyze the country.
One good thing came out of this debacle, Bloomturd’s presidential aspirations were flushed down the toilet!
BTW, none of this has been discussed by the broadcast nets this morning, aside from the 20 seconds or so on CBS.
I don’t know about that. Looks to me like Bloombug’s getting ready to sacrifice the deputy mayor. It’s all that guy’s fault apparently.
Thank goodness it wasn’t Haliburton in charge of this...it would be all over the news if that were the case.
