    I HAVE A FAVOR to ask of the union members who've been picketing the Pennsylvania Convention Center: Leave the Philadelphia Flower Show alone. As in for real, guys. If you're planning to disrupt the show the way some members of the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters disrupted the Philadelphia Auto Show on Feb. 7 - don't argue they didn't; we're not idiots - please just don't.

    A North Carolina family is mourning the loss of their 18 year old son after he was shot and killed by a police officer. Mark Wilsey called 911 for police assistance with his son Keith, who was having a schizophrenic incident and threatened his mother with a small screwdriver. Wilsey said two police officers showed up and were able to subdue Keith, but the arrival of a third officer caused the teen to become agitated, and the officers used a Taser on him. Wilsey told WECT that officers had his son down on the ground after the teen was tased...

    Madison, Wisc…] If there is a statewide recall election this year, it could cost Wisconsin taxpayers more than $9 million according to a new report issued Friday. State Representative Robin Vos (R-Rochester) requested the information from the Government Accountability Board. The GAB memo was sent to Vos this afternoon. “It’s about time taxpayers learned the cost of these unnecessary recall elections,” said Vos.”The citizens of Wisconsin should have known the estimated cost on local governments before a single petition was circulated.” The figures released does not account for possible primary elections which would drive up the costs significantly by the...

    Organized labor is deeply worried about what happens after Tuesday. By many measures, labor unions have been the Republicans’ fiercest, biggest-spending opponents in this year’s campaign, laying out more than $200 million in hopes of safeguarding the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate. So it should be no surprise that Republicans, who appear to stand a good chance of winning control of the House or Senate, are signaling that they plan to push bills and strategies to undermine labor’s political clout and ability to grow. “Republicans are likely to pursue a version of what Samuel Gompers often said: ‘Reward...

Many of the 1000 workers sacked in 1985 when they went on strike after refusing to sign individual contracts, as an unrepentant Sir Joh vowed to "keep the lights turned on" in Queensland, cannot forget the bitter episode, which saw them stripped of their livelihoods and superannuation entitlements.

    Many of you are aware that the National Education Association is really an arm of the RAT Party. At this year's convention, they are showing Slob Michael Moore's deceptive movie. They are endorsing F'in Kerry. What can you do about it? How about helping to do some defunding. If a teacher doesn't like what the union is doing with its political funds, that teacher can make a written demand for a return of money used for political purposes. I believe that the teacher may even be able to demand to go back three years. I have helped some teacher friends...

    WTO softwood ruling favours Canada Last Updated Tue, 27 May 2003 17:01:32 OTTAWA - The World Trade Organization has ruled in favour of Canada in its softwood lumber dispute with the United States. The preliminary ruling, which is not binding, was released to the federal government Tuesday. "Yet again, it appears that the U.S. is being told that its attempts to prove our softwood industry is subsidized are flawed," International Trade Minister Pierre Pettigrew said in a news release. A final report on the dispute is expected in July. The crux of the dispute is an American claim that Canada's...

    VANCOUVER - U.S. politicians introduced legislation Wednesday that would nearly double duties on Canadian softwood exports. Both the Senate and the House of Representatives will consider bills that could raise U.S. duties from 27 per cent to 45 per cent. Reports from Washington suggest the bills have wide support from both Democrats and Republicans. But Doug McArthur, who helped the B.C. government negotiate the softwood lumber agreement, said the bills are probably just a tactic to increase pressure on Canada. "It's very unlikely that this action, which is blatantly illegal under WTO rules and under NAFTA rules, will actually proceed,...
