What is the gain in letting this happen?
These people could potentially shut down every airport in America with a Strike,,Do you really want to give that kind of power to a Union?

“Unions protect workers”?
Spoken like a true Michigander lap dog..( I understand you have to give some love back because the Obama gravy train helped ya’ll out)
“In late 2009 the City of Westland received $2.061 million to radically clean up, restore and rehabilitate their historic district”.

“Unions don’t protect workers”?
We had to hire off duty Police to “protect our workers from the union thugs every time we did a job in New York..Every shop I worked in where the Unions were involved they made the non-union workers lives Hell!
I know a Radio DJ who had his ass chewed by a Union engineer because he unplugged a Microphone and moved it one foot to the other side of the broadcast board..The engineer had a fit and lodged a complant because the DJ was not a Union member and that moving the Mic had to be done by union personnel!

Unions are a joke and need go the way of the Dinosaurs, the only thing they protect anymore is their power to steal money from the little guy..
I don’t think you’ll be singing their praises when you can’t fly anywhere in the U.S. because the thugs have decided that their uniforms are too restrictive.
