"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

On top of that theres the circumstantial proof of trolldum ! Why bring up these locals that are in Canada and New England except they would be the no # 1 hits on google if that's where your from ! Now the question begs , why ? What in the world is so very special about our little forums ? And why the need to lie on them ? And dum-dum , you may get a pension but that sure as heII doesn't mean you earned it !

I will be glad to end this feud providing OWO quits lying about me and my membership and election as steward in the IAM. I doubt he will but he has an opportunity

Time to fold up the tent Munster. I am a former IAM Union steward and live right here in the good ole MOV as I have most of my life. I know you want to believe otherwise but it just ain't so. You can flail around all day long but you won't change those facts

And do you finally agree that stewards are indeed elected? Or shall I give you another 50 examples

You righties here need a lesson in history about just why unions came into being !

And what another line-o-crap ! Usher in communism !??? So whenever workers band together for better working conditions , better pay and a little respect they are branded communists ?? That's some pretty shallow thinking eh ? It has nothing to do with being treated poorly and taken advantage of ! WOW !

Lying troll , you know what you said and its obvious when you said it ! I can grant that you may have been in a union( although you were a lousy union BROTHER) but then why did you cite a Canadian local ? And that line-o-crap of saying they were examples wont float here !If that were true then why wait 128 days to explain it ? Your lies don't even come close to ringing true ! So come on . give us more of your bullsh^t !

But if anything stops the insanity between OWO and stillhere then I retract my last fact and will enjoy the lack of pixels regarding their squabble.

Moderation...it appears as if labor unions were a tool but not necessarily required for the reconstruction. it simply was a carryover from the new deal. Much like here, it was viewed and used as a tool to usher in communism. MacArthur was rightly scared and immediately stepped in.

Unions were required in Japan, as a condition of their economic plan, after their surrender.

But I appreciate the recognition that I have proven him wrong and he cannot prove I was not in a union because I was a steward in the IAM. Like it or not munster

Stillhere

I never claimed to be a member of ANY LOCAL that I cited and that's a fact. Every reference was about steward elections. Fact.

Stillhere

You see he cannot accept that all union workers former or current don't beleive like he does, he must try to discredit them and lying is ok if required

Stillhere

Mod I never said they were ONLY elected, it was he that said they were NOT ELECTED

Posted 96 days ago.

Stillhere

Exactly, every local mentioned was done with the express purpose of proving stewards are elected, IAM UMW USW UAW etc. I HAVE CLEARLY PROVEN HIM WRONG

OWO.. When one removes the fence, no side needs to be chosen.

Cant abide lying Mod ! If one will lie over something like this then what wont they lie about ? Ethics and morality !

Different unions do have different ways of determining stewards. Call it a draw.
