    Is there contract language that states that union members cannot be forced by management to give damning statements against other union members? It's seems I once read that but can't seem to find it now.

    The company can't force you to give any statements against a fellow member.

    It's not contract language. What you are probably remembering is....

    The members oath, as defined in the IBT constitution and your Local Union bylaws.

    ART. II, SEC. 2

    "to never knowingly harm a fellow member"

    It's not in the NMA but is in our Teamster oath.

    "Thou shall not bring reproach upon a fellow Member."

    So what your are saying is that 3/4th of the union thread posts are violating the union oath

    Are you trying to put a biblical spin on it?

    What about " Thou shall not cross picket lines " ? Do you remember seeing that in the Ten Commandments as well?
