    Unions threaten Business

    The following letter is being sent out from Wisconsin Unions/THE MOB to Wisconsin Business Owners.......

    UNIONS THREATEN BUSINESS | Newsradio 620 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin News, Talk, Sports, Weather | Charlie Sykes

    March 10, 2011
    Mr. Tom Ellis, President
    Marshall & Ilsley Corporation
    770 N. Water Street
    Milwaukee, WI 53202
    SENT VIA FASCIMILE AND REGULAR MAIL
    Dear Mr. Ellis:
    As you undoubtedly know, Governor Walker recently proposed a “budget
    adjustment bill” to eviscerate public employees’ right to collectively bargain in
    Wisconsin. ..

    As you also know, Scott Walker did not campaign on this issue when he ran for
    office. If he had, we are confident that you would not be listed among his largest
    contributors. As such, we are contacting you now to request your support.

    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. However, if you join us, we will
    do everything in our power to publicly celebrate your partnership in the fight to
    preserve the right of public employees to be heard at the bargaining table.
    Wisconsin’s public employee unions serve to protect and promote equality and
    fairness in the workplace. We hope you will stand with us and publicly share that
    ideal.

    In the event you would like to discuss this matter further, please contact the
    executive Director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, Jim Palmer,
    at 608.273.3840.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from
    you soon.

    James L. Palmer, Executive Director
    Wisconsin Professional Police Association
    Mahlon Mitchell,President
    Professional Professional Fire Fighters
    Jim Conway, President
    International Association of Fire Fighters Local 311
    John Matthews, Execuctive Director
    Madison Teachers, Inc.
    Keith Patt, Executive Director
    Green Bay Education Association
    Bob Richardson, President
    Dane County Deputy Sheriffs Association
    Dan Frei, Prersident

    Intimidation is what it is. I think those businesses should counter by refusing to pay their taxes, until the budget is under control.

    That is what a boycott is

    The threat of a loss of business unless said company makes certain policy decisions. It is the consumer deciding not to purchase the goods and services of said company

    If the companies can handle that they should get out of the kitchen

    Yes. Threatening to shut someones business down because you don't like their politics is certainly the adult thing to do.
