    ‘Pressure tactics’: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers[W:702:1041]

    Pressure tactics: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers | Fox News

    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.
    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.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Are you implying non union workers could face harassment or their tires being slashed or their homes being vandalized? This has never happened before!

    The line you bolded is misleading. The Scab List contains the workers name and the dept they work in.

    And you don't have a problem with that?

    I'm tolerant of this. Scabs should be treated with the contempt they deserve.

    Well, there's no personal infomration, just their neams and department numbers; SCAB LIST So it looks like Fox News is lying again.

    Frankly, I think those people should be shamed.

    And how do they "desire contempt" exactly?

    I don't know what you mean by "problem", but I don't think Fox should publish misleading claims

    Try reading the article again. No one said they posted personal information in this specific instance. The lawyer with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation said that unions do this, not that they did this in this specific instance, and he is correct.

    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?

    By taking advantage of the protections and benefits unions offer all employees without paying for them.
