I'm union but we provide a service that people can't or won't live without so we have a no strike clause.

That makes our union pretty much worthless. All the union reps end up with mgmt jobs in the company when their union rep jobs are over, does that tell you anything???

Re: Wait - Wuh?? Some Hostess Workers Feel 'Relief' at Losing Jobs ??????????
Here is the bottom line that I think Phenommmm (sp?) was trying to make:

This union - in the Hostess debate - DECLINED an 8% pay cut and 17% health insurance raise. Now, could some people not have survived this? I'm sure. I probably couldn't have been able to pay my bills and keep my house with that pay cut and would have lost my health insurance. BUT - THEY WERE JOBS! If they didn't want to do it - let someone ELSE come in and take them. 18000 OTHER people are willing to work for that money.

But no, All these people who could have been making a decent wage are now a tax burden to the rest of us.

So, while I outlined my own struggles with unemployment and poverty, I surely do resent those folks who deliberately and selfishly caused the collapse of Hostess.

wtf phen. demonizing unions?

unions were formed to give people fair wages and benefits as the greedy bastards running the companies didn't want to pay out.

hostess mismanaged itself and declared bankruptcy in 2004. guess who came along later? 2009 - Ripplewood Holdings did a partial buyout.

who is ripplewood holdings? the ceo is Tim Collins. the Collins family... for those who haven't done the research is one of tptb families. he's a frequent bilderberger.

i suppose you'll be happier when everyone gets paid minimum wage with absolutely no benefits?

there's been far too much bullshit postings from mods lately. what the fuck is wrong with you guys?
rhombus will set you free...

some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend. just what you want to be, you will be in the end!

if you can't face the truth it's probably raping you from behind.

Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything.

there has not been a free market in decades, if there even was one.

people need to stand up for a decent living. losing twinkies and other junk food and overprocessed gluten slices is actually a good thing. losing pay and benefits is a very bad thing. that's the type of shit that ends up making people dependent on the system, which makes them controllable.

Are you remembering the diamond walnut strike? Here are some viewpoints on that, no opinion on accuracy... Why didn't Hostess hire all new people, if this is the case?

[link to www.thefreelibrary.com]

[link to dbacon.igc.org]

"The battle at Diamond Walnut has ground on for over 40 months, not because its workers made excessive demands, nor because their employer faced desperate economic conditions. This has been a strike against the modern day industrial death sentence itself - against permanent replacement, or in not so polite, but truer, language, strikebreaking.

The strike at Diamond Walnut, the battles at Caterpillar, Bridgestone and Staley in Illinois, and other strikes like them which have torn communities apart in recent years across the country, could all have been resolved quickly but for one thing. The employers in every case hired strikebreakers. This simple act converted traditional job actions over resolvable issues of wages and working conditions into desperate struggles for survival for the workers and unions involved.

In a rightward drifting America, losing a strike no longer means accepting a lower wage or poorer benefits. It means losing your job."

Would you want to take a pay cut because your board of directors bankrupted a NATIONWIDE company?

Fuck Hostess. And good for their employees refusing to take the 8% pay cut. I would do the same, union or not. The economy may be poor, but I would lose my job before I let an employer who BLEW HIS MONEY, go and take it out on me, the employee, via pay cuts.

There are jobs if you want to work. Sure, may not be in your field, or of the same pay, but there are jobs out there. In the short term I could live with not having my "dream job" to give my employer a big "FUCK YOU" when they bankrupted their selves and want to take it out on me.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18260563


Hey, you dumbfuck. Hostess had already filed for bankruptcy and was bought out by investors for $130 million. But I guess their obligated to just invest in business for charitable reasons only, to pay pieces of shit like you to do easy jobs that take no brainpower at all. They shouldn't try to make their money back, that's just plain evil.

But people like you, yeah you are entitled to lots of money from others. Because you're a special worker.

So it is ok to cut the baker's salary by 8% and the benefits by 32%, but the CEO got a 300% raise and 9 executives got a 60% raise while they filed for bankruptcy?
 Quoting: Sickandtired 17058124


exactly. ripplewood took over hostess knowing it was going to liquidate the company, just like bain capital would have.

the problem is not people forming unions to increase their quality of life. the problem is greed and corruption, and the higher up the chain you go the greater these problems become.

seize the greedy ceos and bankster and bring them to me!
 Quoting: The Gallows


Yeah ok, they should have just let the company die and never invested in it in the first place! Sure.

What kind of life is it for an adult person, injecting artificial cream filling into artificial sponge cake? Seeing all the obese children at the bus stop as you drive into work to manufacture their doom--that would feel like despair. It would feel bad.

A persons work used to mean something. Bring in the crops. Can the fruit. Till the land. Weave the cloth. Bake fruit pies with nutrition in the fruit and the crust. Milk the cows. Gather the eggs. Teach the children to count and read.

What kind of job is it to deliver empty calorie no nutrition snack cakes to dull eyed vacant faced fat people?

I bet they are relieved.

Democratic Socialists of America member John Sweeney became president of the AFL-CIO and successfully repealed a federation rule prohibiting Communists from serving as leaders of its member unions. Abandoning the blue-collar industrial unionism of the past, Sweeney was instrumental in remaking labor into a progressive movement

Another immensely powerful union is the 1.8 million-member Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which ranks among the largest and fastest-growing unions in North America. Led by the former New Leftist Andrew Stern from 1996-2010, SEIU is a major component of the so-called “Shadow Democratic Party,” a nationwide network -- conceived and funded by George Soros and his political allies -- of unions, nonprofit activist groups, and think tanks whose agendas are ideologically to the left, and which are engaged in campaigning for the Democrats.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

There's talk the remnants of Hostess will be bought by a Mexican company. Probably rights to the trademarks and recipes. If so, they'll move any production line either south of the border or to some other country. Or maybe to a lower cost, right-to-work state in the US.

So we'll end up with fewer jobs, but no fewer worker drones, either on welfare or unemployment. Plus, no fewer illegal immigrants from Mexico.

It's a win-win for increasingly libtarded America.

...




That is bullshit, I have been employed by a union electrical contractor for close to 20years and the owner lacks for nothing and I have made a great wage and built a very nice retirement during those years.......far more than any non-union electrician in my state!

I pay my dues and they leave me alone, I don't go to their meetings or do any other so called "brotherhood" BS. So if you want to make less and have no future then by all means never join a union.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28010361


dude - thats what indoctrination does. it sways opinion.
the dems are notorious for this - and quite frankly successful in baiting/reeling the useful idiots in....

the unions prepare you - for socialism & communism

i was a USgovt employee - yes i was union 20+ yrs. had no fuckin clue as a kid - as to their history, ties, agendas, change agents, educational lineage - dude...i was totally clueless.

i was not only an 'area rep'....i took grievances/cases to national arbitration & the NLRB (national labor relations board)

it was 6 mos before i "retired"....where something came across my desk - that alerted me, got my full attention.
it made me realize, that everything 'we' thought/been told - was predicated on a lie. i didnt want to be a tool anymore.

i bowed out.
 Quoting: Phennommennonn





What part of I pay my dues and they leave me alone didn't copy, I'm also in a right to work red state that has more right leaning union members per member than probably any......the union for me is a vehicle to get me to a destination, I in no way shape or fashion endorse their political agenda.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24089731


Being a member...paying dues...*yes you do!*
 Quoting: jdb





Well sir, I make quite a bit more than any non-union electrician in the state where I live, plus a good retirement is being built and decent insurance for my family so if I'm a bad person for that you can kiss my ***!

They can take my dues and stick them up their arse for all I care, I look at dues like car insurance it's a necessary evil.

Hey OP, I usually either ignore and/or consider the source when I read some of your posts, but this time I must respectfully disagree with your oponion on Unions!
I've been employeed with a Hershey Company for almost 30 years and my Union has been extremely fair.
Unless you were involved with the hostess company, your oponion is merely speculation.
Just another river rat making over dramatic comments.
