    Here is one opinion from a website:
    Public employee unions represent workers at every level of government, federal, state and local. Since contract negotiations for these workers are dependent not on private corporations, but on the size of government budgets, this is the one segment of the labor movement that can actually contribute directly to the people with ultimate responsibility for its livelihood. While their giving pattern matches that of other unions (which overwhelmingly support Democrats), public sector unions also concentrate contributions on members of Congress from both parties who sit on committees that deal with federal budgets and agencies.

    Abd this was interesting:
    he limited nature of the disclosure grew out of a 1948 Supreme Court decision that, in the particular matter then before the court, spared unions and companies from disclosing the costs of political communications with their members or employees.

    Who knew the deck was stacked against Republicans?
    Well, whose fault is that? If our system wasn't so polarized where Republicans refuse to offer support toward labor, maybe it wouldn't need to be that way.

Personally, I wouldn't even bother with a second vote. I think the company should still seek the labor voice they desire on an international level with the German Council in a more friendly place in the US. If for nothing else, to try a new much needed model for labor here. TN will have many other type business that will seek their needs. JMHO
    If you want to run a business, then put your money at risk. If you don't put your money at risk why should you have any say in what a business does? Unions are not there to help a business prosper. You are a bit more like Bram Stoker's Dracula. Unions suck the life blood out of its victims.

    Fortunately I have no strong opinions. Every single encounter I have ever had with any union was a negative experience. Lazy, screwed up, good for nothing, sons of bitches who did as little as possible...
    No thanks. I would rather cut off my fingers one at a time than to ever be a part of a union or a company terrorized by a union.

    Someone told the truth about unions and you could not scare enough employees?

    VW doesn't share your view. The German model works labor and corporate executives as a team.

    It is un-American. It is European socialism. It is anti freedom. It is loathsome. Establishment Republicans, if they did not have such a high number of socialists, should stand against unions.

    And the public sector unions are the worst.

    That is okay. We can show them the right way to run a business.

    I am glad you think that VW is European socialism.
    We in Illinois will be glad to take VW off Tennessee's hands.
    We also have multiple Mitsubishi's who aren't going anywhere .

    That basically is the extreme view many GOP politicians adopt which takes a pretty standard issue such as labor and makes it an us vs them issue. Then they are indignant when labor won't back them. So, their defense is to eliminate anyone addressing the issue of labor.

    As you mention public unions as the worst, having enemies like you should work out pretty well for them .
