    Are you making the claim that it was in the contract? And if it was, what a bunch of BS.

    Since I'm not the one that claimed it was in the contract, I will await proof of the allegation. I'm not in the habit of attempting to prove negatives.

    The news story certainly didn't make the claim, which would be an important item to include it seems to me.

    You most certainly did say that....What are you trying to pull here?

    12 % is a fairly large portion of the working class however.

    In what world? It is slightly over 1 out of every 10 workers. That is damned near non existent. Hint: 1/10th of something is rather small.

    I chose to vote against being in a union myself. Explain that.
    Socialism is for the people, not the Socialist.

    It's about having choices.
    Then you should be for what Gov. Walker is doing.

    You could say the same for any one or any organization that contributes to political campaigns of causes.
    Not quite. No business interest that I know of has a majority of workers in government sectors that could force a shutdown of government business like what has happened with the illegal strike in WI. What unions have here is purely corrupt and they should be forced to give that up.

    I'm saying that any claim that coffee was not in the contract, unless backed up with proof, is an assumption. You seem to be certain that it was not in the contract. Well then, prove it. Otherwise I'll have to call bull**** on your own claim.

    Who cares if it was in the contract or not, business should never be allowed to retaliate in this manner.

    Why should something like coffee be in any contract to begin with? Unless ofcourse your unions see the taxpayer that pays their salaries as someone to soak endlessly with even the smallest of perks. Nice. This is why the public is turning against unions, and membership as a whole across the country is 12%.

    This is the town if I am not mistaken, not a business.

    So because it wasn't in the story, you assume that it wasn't in the contract, and then put the burden of proof on your opposition when you can't back up your own claim. Is that about right?

    Now, having said that, I think it's safe to assume that the board who ruled in the union's favor didn't just decide out of the blue that union members are entitled to free coffee that was never negotiated in talks between the town and the union.

    No, the correct word here is taxpayer. This is the problem with PS Unions. And why FDR said that allowing them was "Unconscionable"...
