Big Labor thug watch: Judge fines longshore union $250,000 for sabotage; thugs threaten to “do what we have to do”
That’s the good news.
The bad news, of course: It’ll come out of rank-and-file workers’ dues while fat cat Big Labor thugs back in Washington sit clean and pretty in their Taj Mahal headquarters.
KOMO News/AP reports (h/t Steve G.):
A federal judge has fined a Longshore union $250,000 for its tactics in a Longview labor dispute.
U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton said Friday he needed to take action in an effort to stop what he called an “awful” situation.
He has held the International Longshore and Warehouse Union in contempt for blocking a train earlier this month and a protest at a grain terminal that caused damages.
The National Labor Relations Board had asked court to fine the union more than $290,000 to cover damages and other expenses. Leighton says he rounded down to be cautious and ordered additional penalties for future violations.
Meanwhile, the lonshore union’s president threatens more pain – via Victoria Taft:
“It’s going to get worse before it gets better.”
Another union goon says they’ll “do what we have to do” to prevail.
