    Threatening phone calls are a problem and there should be some legal inquiry.

    and more:

    In case anyone is interested, below is the response from the bank and letter to the bank from the Union.

    The bank more or less gave them a non-answer or go **** yourself, because we are bigger than you.

    The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor
    Walker's efforts to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public employees in
    Wisconsin. While we appreciate that you may need some time to consider this
    request, we ask for your response by March 17. In the event that you do not
    respond to this request by that date, we will assume that you stand with
    Governor Walker and against the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters,
    and other dedicated public employees who serve our communities.

    In the event that you cannot support this effort to save collective bargaining,
    please be advised that the undersigned will publicly and formally boycott the
    goods and services provided by your company.

    Re: Union threatens boycott of any business that doesn't show support

    Unions are digging themselves a deeper and deeper whole when it comes to their reputation thats for sure. What happened to being for the worker, this doesn't seem to match the notion in any way.

    And their latest theory of not paying their mortgage in attempt to ruin banks and worsen the housing crisis is quite cute unprofessional as well.

    what do you find so funny? did you know that this bank encouraged their employees to vote for those candidates who supported legislation favoring banks?

    Those boycotts were so huge I don't even recall them. I do remember thinking to myself, "I'm glad I buy Ford."
    Put Disney out of business? That would have to be some boycott.

    Wow! You mean they were encouraged to vote in their own best interest? I recall being called an idiot for not voting in my own best interest. I was against the HC bill and other social programs that would benefit me.
    Besides, how do you know they were encouraged to vote a certain way? Not that it matters.

    Bottom line: This only serves to make Governor Walker's cause looked upon more favorably among the folks of Wisconsin.

    **** the union. I hope it dies a slow, agonizing death.

    And when it does, we should honor that day with a national holiday.

    How do you that what's good for the bank is good for its employees?

    But the letter says quite clearl that those who don't like being threatened can call a police officer to discuss the matter.
