Does anyone else see that iuec is rigged before the game begins. The union is a joke. If they can't win they cheat or pay off or extort or bribe their way and if that doesn't work they lie, slander , libel, against anybody that disagrees with them and the democratic party covers up their crimes.

Real nice Brad, but what do you except from a scab. Your buddy EJ told us everything about the Truman Show. The union is stronger without your stupidity. Brad you were the weakest link..... GOODBYE.

Brad, I bought my new refrigerator last night I will deliver it to any underpass you want.. I will reinforce the box with 2 by 4's and put a plastic coat on it. As literally a house warming kit I'm throwing in 2 cases of sterno. The Executive Board voted last night to send you a carton of toilet paer and Frank bought you a squegee and bucket so you can make some money washing windows when the cars come off the tollway. Dan Baumann has donated an old winter coat while John Valone will give you his old putter to fight off the rats. Tom Manning is donating several rolls of aluminium foil so you can continue to get those signals from outer space from years to come. Brad this probes we still care.

Frank also brought the DOL criminal investigation to a whole new level. The people that tell you other wise are either a Target or just don't know. But when they do ask them for the paperwork.

FYI., there is no paperwork. Just like obama and the democratic machine they LIE !!!!!!!

That document is in regard to the "Election Complaint" and has nothing to do with the "29 Page Declaration" whatso ever. Nice try !!!

Just like the obama adminstration, all they do is lie just like iuec.

Brad I heard that Walmart has a job opening for a cart fetcher. As a perk Walmart might let you keep a cart to keep your stuff in. Hell the Executive Board will build a cartport for your new refrigerator box home. We make you a tin can snd string telephone with direct lines to the DOL and NLRB. We can put a satalite dish made from aluminium foil on the roof with a wire to your tin foil hat so you can get those voices from outer space loud and clear. We are going to set up you new refrigerator box home at the underpass within spitting distance from the dumpster at PF Changs, that should be good eating for you. Good luck on that job at Walmart and you can use the Hall as a reference.

Just like the obama administration that lies on a continual basis about everything so doe iuec.

That documentation is old. It is about the election complaint and nothing about the ongoing criminal investigation of IUEC, it's OFFICERS(that's dan too), Employees. and it's EMPLOYERS.

Brad I feel your pain. It must be difacult to know you fought a war and you have been utterly defeated because your ally (DOL) stood by and let you and your rebels get slaughtered. At times you had a chance to win the war but in the end the DOL came around to our side. Did out political connections help? They probably did. The old saying you can't fight City Hall is true in this case too. We have much more money and can afford the best attorneys, while you relied on bureaucrats that serve on the whim of their political masters. As you have seen, we have too much political influence and are too powerful for your bunch of Merry Men. Brad, you have lost your job, you career and soon everything and for what? You didn't want to better yourself and become a mechanic. It wasn't you fault, it was Frank's fault. You know with that attitude even Walmart won't hire you. Brad, look at it this way even Lynch got hired by Carlsen, why won't they hire you? You need to look inward to see the real cause of all your problems, its not others, just look in the mirror to find that answer.

That is a sad state of affairs when yess men take over a union and corrupt it. I think it is funny how corrupt this union really is and how having corrupt democratic politicians in your pockets by renting them makes you superior beings. Every dog has their day dan. At least we don't have to cheat to achieve success or rely on your opinion. Doing the right thing is easy. Everybody has to be accountable but you ? IUEC has a history of stacking the deck and changing the rules as you go along. I guess thats why they are under Criminal Investigation? Have they returned your records ? I didn't think so.

To have such a corrupt president is the reason he will lose!

Carlson pays better than the union and the playing field is level.
