On the hull truth, my fishing forum we had one of the guys post a story about two lady officers in Miami, rented a boat, drunk as a skunk ran the boat under a dock and one of the girls lost her arm. No one was charged because they could not prove who was driving the boat, and the unions medical refused to pay with the girls being drunk so the Govn picked up the tab for both officers medical bills.
The captain got on tv and told what a wonderful officer the girl that lost her arm was, and the dept was not going to file any charges on either of the ladies.
Amazing what goes on when you control the money and no one there to police you.
Turn it around. What it is , is a very smart move on their part to show others what the union can do for you if you become apart of them. Its a very well though out political play by the unions. Got you guys attention.
Now for a crazy story.
Winston Salem, where I pull Honds out the rail yard use to be Union.
We came in , outbid them, and blew the union out the door. The owner of my company turned right around, hired the big guns that were put on layoff to run our company. First thing they did was git rid of anyone they could, hired their union boys, of course they get first pick and now , the rest of us are on the lincoln Ala run which is a lot less work but does not pay as good as staying around Winston Salem pulling two loads a day. Went for pulling 8 to 10 loads a week down to only pulling 4 now on the longer runs. Crazy how the business world works.
