Governor Palin Urges Union Members: Show True Solidarity in Wisconsin

In her Facebook Notes published yesterday, Friday, February 18, 2011, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin urged union members to opt for ‘commonsense’ solutions to the impasse in Wisconsin instead of ‘kowtowing’ to union bosses:

“…My message then and now to good union brothers and sisters is that you have another option. You don’t have to kowtow to the union bosses who are not looking out for you, but instead are using you. You can join millions of other union members in a commonsense movement to help fight for the right causes in our great country – for budgets that share the burden in a truly fair way and for commonsense reforms that take power away from vested interests like union bosses and big business lobby groups, and put it back where it belongs – with “We the People.”

  1. Good post Clio, Sarah is right to address the members instead of the bosses. I left union employment in 1976 after a 4-1/2 month long strike that left me broke. Not my first one either, we had one in '74 also. The irony was we walked picket, honored our commitment and the bosses capitulated for less than we'd went out for. Rank and file members received not one cent of strike fund or union aid, two men died during the walkout, non union employees were locked out and walked with us. Not once during both strikes did the union bossed lose one cent of their pay. The day the dispute ended I tendered my resignation and never went back. I had a similar experience with another union that I'd spent over two years in. In both unions the leaders were only interested in two things, their own job security and a steady influx of dues to be used for political functions at the national level. Certainly not for the stated 'strike fund' to help workers who were involved in labor disputes. BTW, all those employees were laid off within 5 years after the walkout. I'm a firm believer of self reliance.
