Wal-Mart files U.S. labor
charge against union

Reuters, by Jessica Wohl

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/18/2012 4:39:15 AM

Wal-Mart Stores Inc is taking its first legal step to stop months of protests and rallies outside Walmart stores, targeting the union that it says is behind such actions. Wal-Mart filed an unfair labor practice charge against the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, or UFCW, asking the National Labor Relations Board to halt what the retailer says are unlawful attempts to disrupt its business. The move comes just a week before what is expected to be the largest organized action against the world´s largest retailer, as a small group of Walmart workers prepare to strike on Black Friday,

Union slugs want a piece of the action at Walmart for doing absolutely nothing other than stir up trouble.

If these mal-content workers don´t like the conditions at Wal-Marts, they are free to go somewhere else.

These union buffons are trying to run the country and are just ruining the country!!!!

I only recently discovered Wal-Mart, when they finally opened one near to where we live. I love that store. Most of the people that work there seem pretty happy to me. And by the way, I can state with absolute certainty, neither Bloomingdales or Macy´s would hire the people Wal-Mart hires.

WalMart has been under attack from the Left (Ozero´s Democratic Socialists of America) for decades!
It is because WalMart makes people content... with nice goods and fair prices. That goes against the grain with "community organizers" who push for dissatisfaction, frustration, and rebellion in the population.
I like WalMart, the greeters at the doors, and finding everything I need in one store.

What 4 said. Walmart kicked in a big check to zippy. Therefore, the company has endorsed obama pro union goon policies. Oh . . . I guess only in the abstract, as It is fine with Walmart when obama gave the auto industry to the uaw, but deadly serious when a union gets in walmart´s way.

There are so many people looking for work these days, why do the employees who plan to strike on Friday not think that their jobs are in jeopardy?

Anyone that strikes on Friday (and was scheduled to work) should be handed a pink slip on Saturday. Lets see how the big goose egg of a paycheck, going into the Holiday season, sits with these dummies.

Oh my Lord......I never thought I´d see so many in so few posts on Lucianne.com who buy into the Us vs. Them, Rich vs. Poor, class warfare the pro-regressives have been trying to institute in this country for decades.

Walmart as a corporation is free to donate to whomever the corporate execs see fit, and deal with the consequences. And they should be free to hire, and fire, whomever the feel necessary for infractions of their employment policies. And, they are free to institute whatever of those employment practices they feel are beneficial to their company and corporate/investor bottom line.

Get out of pro-regressive land!

What the Union doesn´t seem to get is that Wal-mart workers don´t want it. The law allows workers to organize, it allows representation votes, and Wal-Mart workers have voted against the union every time a vote has been taken.

All this is is Wal-Mart telling the union to put up or shut up. It can protest IF it files a representation petition. If not, no protests are allowed. The union´s problem is that if it loses the vote, it has nothing to complain about.

This notion that it was the Walton family who donated to Obama and it was nothing to do with Walmart is bogus. The late founder built his company on HIS beliefs and HIS ideas. Walmart IS the Walton family.

The unions are wrong for trying this garbage, but I can´t muster up a lot of sympathy for the Walton family. You lie with dogs and you will get fleas.

I hope this filing indicates that WalMart will have local cops hauling the protestors off to jail if they don´t leave the property. As long as we still have private property, these thugs have no right to be there.

Hunting Shoeless Joe´s Holy Grail

It is one of the most enduring mysteries in sports: What happened to the long-lost signed confession of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson? The question has persisted since Jackson and seven other Chicago White Sox players were indicted on charges of fixing the 1919 World Series. The "Black Sox" were acquitted of those criminal charges, but became baseball´s most famous outlaws when they were banished from the sport by Major League Baseball´s first commissioner, Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Now, almost a century later, the quest to find the most captivating piece of evidence in the case has intensified, luring collectors and fans alike

As last winter’s congressional budget talks collapsed with the debt limit on the horizon, 27-year-old Luke Russert put the situation in perspective for MSNBC. “I have never seen anything like it in my three-and-a-half years on Capitol Hill,” he declared with conviction. It was a moment teed up perfectly for Washington’s many Russert-haters, who love to point both to Russert’s lack of experience and what they see as his accompanying lack of humility. Russert was famously hired fresh out of Boston College by NBC News the same summer that his father, “Meet the Press” legend Tim Russert, passed away suddenly—

One difference between professional athletes and fans, and between coaches and cheerleaders, is that while all of them see opportunities for their teams, the athletes and coaches are more likely to also see, and at least privately acknowledge, potential pitfalls. The 2014 Senate races, which are really a fight over who will hold the majority in the chamber, provide plenty of pitfalls for political professionals in both parties to worry about. On its face, the math certainly creates opportunities for Republicans. Twenty Democratic seats are up in 2014, compared with only 15

Suddenly it is imperative that Congress investigate details surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. I´ve never felt that way before. But Drew Griffin´s scoop* changed my mind.

Asked to name his worst failing, Barack Obama surprised the adoring Barbara Walters with a one-word answer — “Laziness.” “You lazy?” she gasped. “You know, it’s interesting,” the president mused. “There’s a deep-down — underneath all the work I do — I think there’s laziness in me. It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on a beach.” Notwithstanding the confidence he let slip to one of his admirers, in owning up to a deep-down laziness, Obama has always had a considerable talent for getting his own way —

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare.

I have been studying the transcript of the recent New York Times interview of President Barack Obama. It is a remarkable document—remarkable not for the facts it contains, but for the way it reveals the mentalities of the participants. Remarkable, too, in so far as the transcript allows a curious reader to see, in detail, how journalism is manufactured. Through a process of extraction, distillation, production, transportation, and marketing no less sophisticated than the global supply chain that brings Southeast Asian textiles to your neighborhood big-box store, a rambling, snobbish, and platitudinous discussion between three well-compensated Washingtonians

Abedin, described in the paper as a "beloved surrogate daughter to the Clintons," took a lot of public heat recently for her decision to stand by her husband in a press conference addressing the new round of sexting allegations. It´s no secret that Hillary Clinton is something of a model for Abedin — both as a wife who stayed with her husband

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"
