Unions are What they are and that’s Bad

Unions had Hostess over a barrel in so many ways. Bread and snack cakes could not be delivered in the same truck. Different people had to unload and stock bread and snack cakes. Drivers were not permitted to load or unload.

Some of the same kinds of things that quickly doomed the post office after Jimmy Carter permitted government unions. I lost customers years ago because they had to drive 30 miles to the post office to pay postage due on packages I sent after I weighed them and the local post office weighed them. When the post office went so called private and unionized, the Postmaster General went from $100,000 a year to $800,000. Workers had the same options for health insurance as federal employees but they paid much less and the post office paid more of the costs.

UNIONS ARE A BLACK HOLE OF INEFFICIENCY. Especially government unions, do you ever remember government employees being overworked in sweatshops or enduring poor working conditions? Has there been a child labor problem?

We need more like Governor Scott Walker who released the stranglehold unions had on Wisconsin. There schools were required to buy insurance from union companies at three times the going rate.

Why does President Obama love unions so much? Because they provided half a billion dollars and half a million workers for his campaign. What will be the pay back? Forcing unions on companies and states and doing away with RIGHT TO WORK.

    Please put some social share buttons on your articles to help us get your articles out with less hassle. Thx. It is much easier because it takes less time. Most people won’t go to the trouble of copying and pasting to social media sites, especially now that most everyone uses social sharing buttons and thinks that the copy/past method is old fashioned.

    Please add social share buttons to your blogs because it is much easier using those than the old copy/paste method. Most people won’t take the time to share your blog posts via copy/paste because they feel that you ought to have your own easy social media share buttons and that it takes more effort to copy/paste than it does to click on a share button. People get frustrated with the old copy/paste method and give up easily when they are moving rapidly to get important news out to their followers. They will read your article, but will skip over re-posting via the old way.

    I found you on Twitter via a Twitter Friend. I came to your site, but found no social media share buttons, nor did I find your Twitter ‘follow you’
    button. Not even a Facebook ‘Like’ you button.

    Unions have been a poison for a long time draining companies and the goverment ability to be efficient and rightly serve customers and the people. Now Unions are also Political always going for the left so they can continue to feed off of their host; such as, Hostess. The must be stoped!

    I read an article not long ago that said: at the time unions finally came into being, they were no longer really necessary as the employers had solved the problems…
    Can’t find it now. Durn.

    This is an important topic. Public unions were not ever wanted by the president who began unions. FDR. He said:

    “The desire of Government employees for fair and adequate pay, reasonable hours of work, safe and suitable working conditions, development of opportunities for advancement, facilities for fair and impartial consideration and review of grievances, and other objectives of a proper employee relations policy, is basically no different from that of employees in private industry. Organization on their part to present their views on such matters is both natural and logical, but meticulous attention should be paid to the special relationships and obligations of public servants to the public itself and to the Government.

    All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.

    Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of Government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable. It is, therefore, with a feeling of gratification that I have noted in the constitution of the National Federation of Federal Employees the provision that “under no circumstances shall this Federation engage in or support strikes against the United States Government.”
