    Union holds Contest for Worst Bosses.... but not union bosses!

    HAH! this reminds me of back when it came out that SEIU had shut down it's workforce.... for trying to unionize



    When it comes to bad boss stories, the AFL-CIO wants to hear all about them -- hosting a contest in which the most abused worker wins a weeklong vacation. The only limitation to entering -- contestants can't be employees of the AFL-CIO.

    "Employees, officers, and directors (and their immediate family members and members of the same households, whether related or not) of Working America, Union Privilege or the AFL-CIO are not eligible to participate," the AFL-CIO says at the bottom of an email and in the contest rules posted on its website...

    Organizations hosting contests often deny participation to staff and officers in order to avoid the perception of rigging the outcome.

    But the Center for Union Facts said the AFL-CIO has such a long record of mistreating its employees that it has had more than 250 unfair labor practice complaints against it in the past three years. In an ironic twist, there have been 40 attempts to unionize labor unions in the past five years....

    I doubt mistreatment of union employees factored into this. As the article says this is par for the course for contests. Plus I doubt the bureaucrats care if people know how union employees are treated.

    so would you say that they are incorrect that unions themselves such as SEIU tend to try to squash their own workers when they try to unionize? or that the AFL-CIO has not had more than 250 complaints in three years?
