Re: “Judge warns union to halt illegal tactics” (TNT, 9-9).
I do not have sympathy or respect for any union that would allow or condone the criminal actions of its members such as those inflicted on the Port of Longview by the Longshore union.
Do they think they are better then everyone else? That many other people aren’t suffering job losses, wage cuts and loss of medical benefits? Do you see any of us putting together a mob of bullies to defy the law, holding innocent people hostage, vandalizing property and intimidating others?
What if we all decided to handle our labor disputes that way? What if teachers held classrooms of children hostage and went around smashing desks, computers and chalkboards? Violence solves nothing, and last I heard, taking hostages, vandalism and bullying are all illegal.
They are criminals and should be treated as such.
