OK, we have unskilled laborers who can be easily replaced. We also have the union bosses telling these people to go on strike.

Will the union bosses go without paychecks too? Nope.

Just say "NO!" to jobs.
Just say "YES!" to the union bosses.

It worked out so well for the American Crystal Sugar workers.

SEIU Local 26 to hold strike authorization vote Saturday

Pioneer Press

02/07/2013 05:36:21 PM CST

A union that represents more than 6,000 janitors and security officers in the Twin Cities will hold a strike authorization vote on Saturday, as the workers have been without a contract since Dec. 31.

Members of the Service Employees International Union Local 26 will vote Saturday morning at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Affirmative votes by the janitors and security officers -- who have separate contracts -- would give their bargaining committees the right to call a strike.

The bargaining committees have been negotiating with employers covered by the contracts for months without progress, they say, and both committees have recommended a "yes" vote from members.

The union members work at dozens of office buildings in both Twin Cities' downtowns and other areas.

Just say NO, to a decent standard of living...

Because a POS calls your hard work unworthy, after he lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes TRYING ~!

Oddly, you're against the workers WHO DO THE WORK, getting a living wage... Of course, WE remember your 2 hours and 15 minutes at "real work"...FAILURE !!!

Sorry son, it's a man topic, you don't get respect, YOU NEVER EARNED !!!

So, you have some actual Crystal Sugar stories, because I heard many retired, some found other work, and the rest are "living" on that $10 spot you donated ! LMAOROTFU~!

Hmmm, might be an opportune time to put together a non-union janitorial company and approach some of these building owners that have contracts expiring with union company workers.

Might be just the time.

Bye-bye union jobs - again. All because the union members are too stupid to know how easy it is to replace them.

Let's see, going to need some rubbermaid carts, vacuum cleaners, dry mops, some glass cleaner, some 9 or 10 pH bathroom cleaner, a big wastebasket on wheels, bonding insurance, background checking company, and a couple of employees.

And, some good health insurance. Those Union thugs don't give up jobs without a fight, and an occasional shooting!

If they walk out on their jobs, their employers will not be able to provide the service they contracted to provide and the contract with the employer will be terminated. A service union is a very precarious thing.

A service job is often pretty easy to get. Most folks want easier work and better pay. Of course, you just talked about thousands to start up, you do not have... like you are a mensch, when you're not.

Pretty sweet, pretending you're a manager, when you're simply a mouthy moron.

There are firms that specialize in helping employers staff service industries when the unionistas walk out.

Plan B.

Most unions know they are on thin ice these days, but some still think it is a strong job market. Or, at least they tell their true believers that it is and that the union holds all the cards.

Next thing that happens is the entire work force is replaced. Just like at American Crystal Sugar.

Bye-bye to 6,000 union jobs.

Poor gay Slewsie. Losing that job at the Post Office really did hurt you. Someday you will overcome. Hey, that's a song. Should we sing it together? "We shall overcome. We shall overcome. We shall overcome someda-a-a-a-ay."

U.S. Postal Service loses $1.3 billion in October-December
Reuters 1 hr 45 mins ago...

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The U.S. Postal Service lost $1.3 billion in the October to December quarter, an official said on Friday, days after the beleaguered mail agency announced plans to cut back on Saturday delivery to save money.
The Postal Service lost $3.3 billion in the same period a year earlier.
This year, extra mail tied to the November elections and stronger revenue from holiday-related packages contributed to a better quarter, USPS Chief Financial Officer Joe Corbett said during a meeting of the Postal Service Board of Governors.
The October to December period, which is the first quarter of the Postal Service's fiscal year, is typically the strongest because of the holidays.
The mail service has been grappling with tumbling mail volumes as Americans communicate more online and has struggled under the weight of massive required payments for future retiree health benefits.
The Postal Service defaulted twice last year on required payments to the federal government and lost almost $16 billion during the fiscal year.
Earlier this week, the mail agency announced plans to stop delivering first-class mail on Saturdays starting in the first week of August as part of a series of cost-cutting steps the agency is taking. The agency said cutting back to five-day mail delivery would save $2 billion a year.
The Postal Service will continue delivering packages on Saturdays and will keep post offices on their normal schedules.
