Red Blooded American
Lets be 100% truthful here for a moment Wolkie.Like I've said before, I believe that union control should be taken on at SCOTUS. I believe that the 1st amendment allows for freedom of association, or lack there of. In order to work for a company, I believe that it should be unconstitutional to be required to join any group as a precondition of employment.
I wonder what the ACLU would do if a company that had a contract with the church required you to join the church as a precondition to work for them. It's no different. You're forced to join a union as a precondition for employment.
That is too priceless. i had no idea. You learn something new every day. What a legacy to built you union around. They must be so proud. You cannot imagine how much I am going to enjoy using that. THANK YOU!I like the fact racketeering was made a word only because of the Teamsters union in the early 1900s. That is pretty special.

Racketeering is often associated with organized crime, and the term was coined by the Employers' Association of Chicago in June 1927 in a statement about the influence of organized crime in the Teamsters union.[SUP]

I could have sworn the last time I was there it said the word was created to describe what they were doing... Hmmm...
