To: Maine Mariner
He claimed no labor union influence in his committee testimony, but Jim Oberstar did suddenly change his tune, and a lot of people - including some of his supporters - believed he did so due to union pressure; that he did an abrupt about face is irrefutable, as is the fatuous theatricality of comparing the DQ's potential flammability to the boiler explosion on the Sultana
I sailed on ships with contracts with the Seafarers International Union. The SIU represented the unlicensed mariners on the Delta Queen. Every time a waiver was granted when the SIU had the contract, the Log (SIU monthly newspaper) congratulated Congress, especially Jim Oberstar.
Correct, Oberstar was my Congressman, and a total union stooge, as most democrats in MN. are.
We were quite thrilled, when we finally got rid of him.
