Re: Oh, Shit! Los Angeles Port Union Workers Going To Strike.
These guys can get a bit rough.

It's the clerks (who I once read can make 100K/yr) who are striking, but

"...Perhaps even more significant than the picket line was that the longshore union that loads and unloads ships at port was honoring it and refusing to work at the terminal..."




[link to www.latimes.com]



A picket line has shut down the APM Terminal at the Port of Los Angeles, shown above. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union's Local 63 Office Clerical Unit, which handles paperwork involved in the loading and unloading of vessels at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, is trying to prevent the outsourcing of its jobs.

Re: Oh, Shit! Los Angeles Port Union Workers Going To Strike.
I don't get the American hostility towards trade unions.

It would be naive to trust the good will and understanding of those who could make more profit by exploiting us.

Historically the labor movement has been essential in creating better and safer working conditions for all of us, establishing minimum wages, and providing safeguards against predatory employers resorting to child labor or requiring contracts that practically amount to slavery (e.g. work 10 hours a day for 7 days a week with no annual vacation, health care or sick leaves).

Treat your workers right and you won't have trouble with the unions.

Will this result in a disruption of the flow of cheap Chinese goods? If so expect a brutal crackdown on the 'illegal' strike. If the Chinese are still dumping their crap then expect the union thugs to prevail with Obama's help.

Marxist much? The unions in America are part of a cabal to utterly destroy the foundational principles of the American constitutional republic and replace it with a Marxist dictatorship. Their plan, already announced, is to bankrupt the nation and control the revolution that ensues.

So far they have been successful and soon will get the power they crave so much. As such they are enemies of the few patriots left in this country.

Unions have nothing to do with workers rights these days, at least in this country. It's primarily about power. They enslave their members, many of whom are actually forced to pay union dues against their will.

Unions are the reason we're not all Chinese sweat slaves. Corporate shills hate unions because it takes a bit of padding out of their coffers. I'd rather see this whole country go bankrupt and outsource than fall to unfair labor practises.

If you care anything for your life you'd remove yourself as quickly as possible from L.A.

All that will remain after the mass riots will be burnt out buildings and what's left of the populace...think who would be left after such an event...

The most blood thirsty, ruthless gang bangers imaginable...

Those that remained alive because the preyed off those weaker than themselves...

Burning, raping, murdering, and looting will be their life blood.

It is all they know and all they will ever know.

So, here's the latest update in the local paper:


[pic of nice long line of backed-up trucks]


"A strike by about 800 clerical workers is disrupting the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and costing them an estimated $1 billion a day.

The small band of strikers that has effectively shut down the nation's busiest shipping complex forced two huge cargo ships to head for other ports Thursday and kept at least three others away, hobbling an economic powerhouse in Southern California.

Re: Oh, Shit! Los Angeles Port Union Workers Going To Strike.
OMFG:




Stephen Berry, lead negotiator for the shipping lines and cargo terminals, said the clerical workers have been offered a deal that includes "absolute job security," a raise that would take average annual pay to $195,000 from $165,000, 11 weeks' paid vacation and a generous pension increase.
