    Hm. If scab includes a regular worker that simply refuses to join a union, then I am wrong. I admit I had always assumed that that sort of derision was saved for those who came in to work during a strike.

    Wow. Unions are even more nasty and vindictive than I thought. Sentences I never thought I'd write for $500, Alex.

    Not really, at least before the gov't got involved. The job is controlled ('owned') by contract between the employer and the union. What the federal and state governments have done is to inject themselves into private contracts and telling private parties what they can and cannot do. Normally the conservatives would be screaming about this gov't intervention into private matters, but as with all things the conservatives scream about it really depends more on just whose ox is being gored.

    Wrong answer. I think I provided someone else with an explanation above (yeah, see #292).

    Years ago (may still be true today), in some industries -- like construction -- the employer simply calls the union and tells them how many and what type workers they need. The union supplies the bodies (so to speak ).

    The last line is bolded for emphasis. These are the tactics that unions use and it's plain wrong. I dare anyone to defend what the union is doing here with a straight face.
    I think this violates several federal work right laws as well. one being a harassment free work place.
    therefore this type of thing is illegal and these guys should be fired.

    scabs are only workers that cross picket lines to work.

    i see nothing wrong with that of course. if you don't want to work then i will. it's your loss.
    these guys are not scabs they work for the company and didn't want to join the union.

    federal worker rights laws protect them from job harassment just as this list.

    if i worked there and someone tried it my first defense is to lodge a complaint with the union manager letting him know his men are in violation of federal worker laws.
    if that didn't stop then i would inform the company that if they do not do something they are in violation of federal worker laws.

    if nothing then is done i sue both the union and the company for millions of dollars and retire.
