Gee wasn’t there news not too long ago, like a matter of months ago, about bully laws? Yet we have Unions, the poster child or king-pin-up of bullies.
John Ransom offers an article about Obama’s Union buddies, bullying non-union jobs/companies…
Sodexo, which operates as a contractor in government facilities, military bases, schools and hospitals, says that the SEIU tried to “extort [the company] by threatening financial damage unless [it] cave[d] into its demands. The SEIU’s campaign was designed to illegally threaten [the] company.”
Of course the SEIU denies these claims, did we expect they would be honest & say “yup we did it”, of course not.. they are going to deny it to their last breath… they are a political machine after all.
The Blog of the Legal Times says that the union has been accused “of carrying out a negative publicity campaign in order to strong-arm exclusive access to Sodexo’s non-union employees. Sodexo claimed the union was attempting to unlawfully unionize employees and increase revenue in violation of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.”
I have to include this part, because this says so much! Because less than 20% of the company opted to join the SEIU, the SEIU is playing some dirty tricks,.. so ridiculous you would think they surely have to be made up by a child…
According to the National Legal and Policy Center only 18,000 of the company’s 98,000 qualified employees have chosen to join the SEIU. In retaliation, says the NLPC, the union has carried out a campaign of intimidation that includes:
- threw plastic roaches onto food at a high-profile event catered by Sodexo;
- scared hospital patients by insinuating that Sodexo food contained bugs, rat droppings, mold and flies;
- sneaked into elementary schools to avoid security;
- violated lobbying laws to steer business away from the company; and
- threatened Sodexo USA employees with public exposure of alleged wrongdoing.
Some of the techniques involve threatening regulatory pressure, via gov’t agencies or courts..
Where would the regulatory pressure or government action come from? The SEIU reportedly spent $60 million electing Barack Obama.
Think about Obama’s career path, consider the company he keeps, and think about his support for the unions.. have I said enough lately he seriously needs to go?
