    No contract since 2009? No wonder they went on strike. Think of all the retro for them.

    I hope the executive order didn't forbid another strike if there is still an impasse between the negotiating committees in a specified amount of time. I hope they get longer than a 5 year contract or they are in the same predicament as they are in now. :biting:
     
  3. Just don't let Hoffa and hall,negotiate the contract!....Impasse?...lol

    And that was just a city strike. Could you imagine how quick UPS would get Obama to send us back to work if we had actually gone on strike?

    They're all a joke. Didn't Reagan force the air traffic controllers back to work?

    I agree that's wrong also but that's totally different than city train drivers.

    Johney Raise your hand if you think Upstate is a D-Bag

    Our local backed him(I did not). Guess I'll ask our shop steward what he thinks now.
     
  12. We all got out of the D.R.I.V.E. after that!
     
  13. Or Romney he would look to make them right to work so the members wouldn't have to pay dues so their union would have even less clout.

    At least I can respect a man who says he's for something and sticks to it.

    I can't respect a man who says one thing and does the opposite.

    Obama doesn't really care about labor, but we sure as hell didn't mind cutting him all those checks from DRIVE.

    Hell, look at what his Chief of Staff (Rahm Emanuel) tried to do to the Chicago Teachers Union when he became Mayor.

    You have to learn what is at play here. Its not as simple as "president obama is a democrat"...

    The rails are protected under the national railway act, and proceedures for a strike are mandatory regardless of who is president.

    Unlike UPS, which is covered under the NLRA, we can strike without government interference, whereas the RAILS cannot.

    All the political rhetoric spill on this topic is useless junk.

    Learn the law people.
