    Thank you for displaying your bias. The OP story about the VW vote has nothing to do with Corker but it does have to do with union violence in PA

    How many of these resulted in convictions in a court of law?

    Those numbers given are claimed to be since 1975. That is a period of 29 years. Divide those numbers by 39 and then divide them by the 14.5 million people in unions and you get a number that is probably smaller than the freckles on the average human body.

    Re: Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat

    So a political group dedicated to fighting unions claims a certian number of crimes related to unions. How can their numbers be verified?

    you and rabbit are going off the wall at what 1 person said and there are 330m people in america.

    the argument that rabbit made was that we don't need that type of corruption in the system. which is a fair statement. yet when confronted with the fact that
    the corruption goes both ways and only both ways but you have people beating up and destroying private property because they won't unionize is over board.

    that is just the tip of the iceburg. unions have always been well known for bullying their workers into submission. they are known for intimidation and other factors to try and push their way through.

    that is why they want card check and no more secret ballot so they can show up at peoples homes and intimidate them and their families into joining a union.
    union thuggery more so the UAW is appalling and just as corrupt or more corrupt than what corker said.

    None of this has to do with what happened in TN. The union did not cause violence. The politicians did try to influence the vote.

    Re: Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat

    Union officials are convinced that Mr. Corker's statement about the SUV line influenced the outcome, a person briefed on the union's thinking said. The UAW was running a phone-bank campaign during the election, and in the days just before the vote heard from VW employees who once were in favor of a union swaying more neutral or to "no," this person said.

    Another person who has been advising workers opposed to the UAW said about 1,000 of the 1,300 votes were cast last Wednesday before Mr. Corker went public with the statement that the plant would get an SUV even if the UAW loses the election.

    So sad, too bad, Corker's comments did nothing to stop the UAW's failure, their track record did.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The only corruption that happened during this situation was what these politicians displayed. The union did not do anything corrupt. What happens in PA has no bearings in TN no matter what slippery slope you are trying to make.
