    not showing up to work for one day, is not a terminatable defense in a union job.

    You might be surprised at what I could do to other human beings.

    "Supporting" something is? No. That just means they have an opinion.

    But you must remember grasshopper.... There is no "I" in Union, regardless of the English spelling. As a union steward myself I am well aware of that.

    T
    his does not seem to be popular within the Longshore workers union. Does not seem to be very well organized or didnt really have a lot of steam behind it. I still support the move and cause however.

    Thoughts?
    Comments?
    Response? [/FONT][/COLOR]
    What is the cause then?
    What do they plan to accomplish by blocking down the ports and preventing working class folks from making their deliveries?
    What do they plan to accomplish by making a lower-middle class worker go without pay?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Maybe you should check their website instead of being lazy and asking her. Don't worry, I did your research for you:

    True, but showing up for work and not doing any IS. At least in most unions.

    If you haven't figured it out by now Commienique, I am a supporter of someone explaining how they view something.... not finding the script answer for the question myself.

    It gives me better perspective on THEIR arguments in a forum setting.



    So, uhh... five carefully selected truckers claim they support the actions..........

    I wonder if they are the ones losing money today.......

    This is just machismo. Otherwise you would have been in prison for aggravated assault with a vehicle a long time ago, big boy.
