Gross maniplulation by Obie-Burger's flunkies. Look what the unions did for NWA.
Big Richard and the crooks on the Steering Team STILL ripped off the employees and creditors.

Absolutely amazing!

This Right Wing Rag is showing their colors again. The article had to have been written for the PiPress by someone within the management team at Delta.

The rules were changed not to make it easier for the union to win, but because that is what is fair and just. That is what the NMB ruled.

At a time when labor is so undervalued, jobs are being shipping oversees and millions of people are unemployed, business is taking full advantage of the situation, offering low pay, little or no benefits and often only temporary employment while the stockholders and upper management share the majority of the profit.

The rules changed and the union members should take advantage of that, just as Northwest and Delta would have had the rules changed to their advantage. More and more it seems like the need for unions to protect workers is growing, and I hope these workers get their vote.

I am sorry you chose to have "Irish" in your name. You are making us out to look like fools with your dumb posts. Could you change your name to ChinaMN or CubaMN that would fit your views and intellegence better?

Heard the new hired scabs are talking union because the cross-over scabs get better treatment. How much U wantna bet the bulk scab population votes union. Dick maybe planning the terminations as we speak. He's got to do something to leverage the vote.

Just a figure of speech ong... no I am not going to bet you.

I couldn't agree more. You should not have your name associated with a country/region where Catholics and Protestants murder women and children for being the wrong religion. You should not have your name associated with a country/region where terribly high unemployment is keeping the country from getting out of a recession. You shouldn't associate with a country that prides itself not on it's culture, art or contributions to mankind but rather for it's ability to drink large quanitities of beer.

These unions actions are criminal. Wouldn't it be great if we voted for congress to remain in office or replace them and if you didn't vote the incument got a vote taken away? Wouldn't it be great when we vote for school levies that if you don't vote, it counts as a no?

It's too late for that! There are not enough of them to even get a union card drive up. Shows their stupid mentality, you don't talk union at a non union company unless you want to join the unemployed....

Apparently not, especially when it comes to Dicky and rat face. Anything NWA/Delta is above the law, or the law according to them and anyone they pay off. Have you forgotten? I see no problem replacing replacement workers with replacement workers....lol
