Is all this is a group organized for a Democrat agenda and who they will support in elections. They only ever have Democrat candidates at their meetings. Union business my rear.

I don't know how this nonsence started but I can't resist responding. If the Panther Valley School District lost Nesquehoning, where would they get money to operate? Most of the money now comes from Nesquehoning.For that matter where would they find school directors? Lansford has none now and none from Lansford has filed for years. Coaldale has none. Summit Hill has the Hiles faction and look what that has brought us.

The unions are nothing but a bunch of whining crybabies.
They always say buy american and you go to any job site and they're working with imported tools. Hey if you're going to preach it, you should practice it

At one time unions served a wonderful purpose. No more ! It's all about their own personal agenda and how many times has the union gotten into bed with the employers and gave the workers a real screwing ? Look what the union just did to Hostess ? What over 800 workers out of jobs ? Yeah, the union really benefitted the workers there.
