    So are you going to address the article or the topic or are you just here to bash FOX News because of a damning story about union activities?
    From the OP and highlited by the poster:
    The Kansas chapter of the United Auto Workers union is using its website to draw attention to GM workers who choose not to pay union dues.

    UAW Local 31 dedicates an entire page of its website to listing the names and work stations of employees who have opted to exercise their rights not to be in the union. UAW Local 31 lists nearly 30 workers at the Fairfax, Kansas GM plant who are not in the union. The “Scab List” is published under the union website’s “Important Information” section.
    Local 31 president Vicki Hale did not respond to request for comment.
    Glenn Taubmann, a lawyer at the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, said that scab lists are used to pressure workers into joining the union. The use of their personal information and where they can be found in the plant make them easy targets for harassment and intimidation.
    So; who's lying?

    As I said, those people should be shamed for what they're doing.

    Personal information has always been know as just that: many people have names.

    The OP is lie: there is no personal information.

    No they shouldn't. They aren't breaking the laws as you are for harassment.

    if a non union worker is harassed, there is probable cause that the Union thugs are responsible

    Oops.... nevermind
    ok you don't seem to understand federal labor laws. so let me explain.

    harassment is a firable offense in any company. people have the right to a harassment free work place.
    so if the union refuses to fire and or dismiss employee's that are harassing and abusing other employee's then they are endorsing a criminal activity.

    if the company then refuses to do anything they also are endorsing a hostile work environment.
    so they are legally liable for any damages both physical and emotional that would occur.

    not working for a union does not make you a scab you need to get a clue.

    Personal information on the list itself is irrelevant. Everyone knows 'Joe over in machining' (or whatever department), and these unions members that'll probably follow them home and write down that address to be shared next day at work. There's no need for the union to publish any of it. It'll be easily obtained.

    The scabs list is little more than a wink and a nod from the union to it's members to apply pressure and have these scabs either fall in line with the union or leave.

    The same can be said for the Card Check legislation the unions want to get passed.

    Card check - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can easily imagine the thuggery that goes on to get those cards signed in back alleys. Secret ballot would be far more fair and honest method, IMHO.

    It puzzles me that the left is so supportive, tolerant and even encouraging of union thugs bullying people who just trying to make an honest days wages, when they are totally up in arms and nearly to tears about similar bullying in the schools for example.
    You have a lot there erik. I'll answer you tomorrow, if I can, I have guests coming so this is a courtesy how'ya doin'. The other are easy one liners.
