So you expect others NOT in your union to stop working just because you want to stop working ?<quoted text>Not trying to get into a fight but i always have an issue with people who cross picket lines. You and others say hey these folks are just trying to make a living. U are right, but why do u think there is a strike in the first place? Working conditions, seniority, health care, money. When these folks cross the line they are taking my job and what iam fighting for. I have a right to be angry. Im lucky ive been in the union for 20 yrs and never struck, but if someone tried to take my job, im gonna be pretty pissed also. Dont think id shoot, but there will be issues. And if i do strike, and any of these "scabs" get on permnately, then i would do all i could to make their lives miserable. just my 2 cents
If you want to strike go ahead.
But i'm not in your union so why should i stop working ?
Your union pay you when you strike.
Would they pay me if i didn't work ?
Yeah i thought so.
Don't expect others to care if you don't want to work. I had a job BEFORE and DURING you guys striking.
And if others want to take your place fine with me.
Sometimes lives depend on products moving. So if someone else wants to step up and keep it moving i'm all for that guy.
I sure am not going to be for some guy who thinks i should lose money and risk my job just because he wants to sit home collecting union money for not working.
Because of that strike i now go out of my way to cross picket lines whenever i see them.
