Powerful Boston Teamster Boss Faces Suspension For Threatening To ‘Punish’ Members
In the mid 1980s, the President’s Commission on Organized Crime issued a report stating that the four major labor unions were under the influence of organized crime and run undemocratically at the detriment of their members.

The Military Has A Term (or Acronym) To Describe The ObamaCare Rollout: FUBAR
With the White House now hinting agreement with the Republicans
who called for a delay in penalizing individuals under the ObamaCare mandate, the disastrous rollout of Barack Obama’s singular signature piece of legislation passed during his presidency can be summed up in one military term (or acronym): FUBAR
Notwithstanding the fact that the mainstream media has been near-unanimously stuck on declaring that healthcare.gov’s problems were caused by a mere “glitch,” everything about ObamaCare’s rollout, thus far, has proved to be a disaster of epic proportions. It has lived down to the most dire warnings of becoming a “third-world experience.”

VW’s German Union May Be Violating U.S. Labor Laws. Will Obama’s NLRB Do Anything About It?
With Volkswagen employees delivering an anti-UAW petition
to management last Friday, the big battle over the UAW’s do-or-die efforts to unionize VW’s employees in Chattanooga, Tennessee is heating up.
Although VW employees have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board over the UAW’s deceptive card-signing tactics, it remains to be seen whether Barack Obama’s union appointees at the NLRB will address any union-related violations of VW employees’ rights.

NPS Threatened WWII Vets With Arrest But Now Opens Mall For Union Bosses’ Immigration Rally During #Shutdown
Updated. It truly seemed like we’re living in a world dictated to us by Lilliputian bureaucrats when a group of World War II veterans were threatened with arrest for having the temerity last week to visit the World War II Memorial during the government shutdown.

Unbelievable: During #Shutdown, Government Union Officials Exempt From Furloughs
One would think that during a government shutdown that has nearly shuttered many government agencies and caused thousands of “ordinary” government workers to be furloughed, union officials on the government dole would be among those sharing the pain of their constituents.

Unions Lie. (Shocking, isn’t it?)
There’s an ongoing controversy over the United Auto Workers’ efforts to unionize nearly 3,000 of Volkswagen’s workers in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Unfortunately, Volkswagen’s employees may be learning the hard way that unions and their organizers are
often dishonest when it comes to unionizing workers.
Last month, after using some legally questionable
tactics, the UAW claimed that it had acquired a majority of signatures
from VW’s workers.
Now, increasing the temperature in Tennessee, a group of VW workers have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming the UAW misled the VW workers into signing union cards.

Truth vs. Lies: ObamaCare, Deconstructed
Union bosses were for it before they were against it
. They sold their members on a President who told them they would get better healthcare at lower cost when the exact opposite is occurring–and even though they are still pushing
for nationalized healthcare.
We knew all along its consequences would be disastrous. Now, we are all paying the price.

AFL-CIO Bosses Officially Commit To Legalizing, Unionizing Immigrants To ‘Change The Political Environment’
A few years ago, SEIU boss Eliseo Medina made some off-hand remarks about turning millions of the nation’s illegal immigrants into progressive voters.

Were a majority of VW’s American workers coerced and threatened into signing UAW cards?

AFL-CIO Convention Report #3: Union Bosses Commit To Targeting Southern Workers For Unionization

AFL-CIO Convention Report #2: Trumka’s Right-Hand, Ex-NLRB Member Craig Becker At Convention Keynote Address
Toward the end of AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka’s long and bloviant keynote speech to AFL-CIO conventioneers, a familiar face was caught during one of the camera pans of the convention stage–that of controversial former National Labor Relations Board member Craig Becker.
