UAW drops NLRB case to
organize Volkswagen

CNN Money, by Chris Isidore

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2014 11:07:03 AM

NEW YORK -The United Auto Workers has dropped its challenge of a vote to organize workers at Volkswagen´s only U.S. plant that went against the union. The National Labor Relations Board was set to start a hearing Monday on the UAW´s complaint that Republican politicians improperly interfered before the Feb. 14 vote at the Chattanooga, Tenn. plant, which the union lost 712 to 626. But the union issued a statement Monday saying it was dropping its appeal because fighting the election through the NLRB could have dragged on for years. "The UAW is ready to put February´s tainted election in

´ tainted election´ means even with all the coercion, lies, and tricks, the union bosses didn´t win.

I have to ask myself if they´ve cut a deal with VW to impose a union on the workers. It is well-known that VW´s German unions are putting a lot of pressure on them.

Yes. VW did want the union to win. They helped the UAW every way they legally could. The workers did not want the union.

A second loss at the same plant would have devastated the union and nullified claims of a rigged election (something they know nothing about, I´m sure). Apparently Tennessee auto workers are smarter than their northern counterparts in Michigan.

#4, Back in my working days I went on a fact finding trip to many Bavarian companies. At one company, the management I was to meet with apologized for being late because they were in a Union meeting. Yes, management participated with union members in their meeting. It was my impression that German Unions wanted a win-win situation while American unions seem to want a we win-you lose relationship.

I live in chattanooga, and this stinks to high heaven. The UAW was prepared to wage a scorched earth campaign to get the vote annuled, even indicting the Governor and many other local politicians. Could this be a trick on the part of the UAW and VW. Remember, Hitler said he would be satisfied with the Sudentanland, so watch your step when negotiating with the VW folks as well as the UAW.

Not to worry. Barkie just agreed to give the thugs all the phone numbers and addresses of the workers . In that way , they can call up or stop by for a little chat about benefits of unions and the convenience of being able to walk unencumbered by knee injuries.

Yes, it was indeed tainted.
Big-Mouth Barry Soetero just had to make a comment to the press right before the election to say that he supported the unionization of VW.
So, tell me how an election can be "tainted" by what Corker said, but not by what Obama said?
The fact that this would come out during any NLRB court case, dragging Obama into it as a material witness, is why the UAW dropped the suit. Too many videos of Obama rooting for the UAW in an election year.

Of course: they didn´t have a case. First Amendment free speech and all.

Latest news report is that they will instead press their agenda in the Democrat controlled Senate committees.

Germany´s Mario Gotze scored with a brilliant finish to win the World Cup for Germany tonight, as his team beat Argentina 1-0 in the hotly-contested final.

Midfielder Gotze, 22, came on as a substitute to net the winner, controlling the ball with his chest before volleying it into the Argentine goal, making the Germans the first

Brian Reichle couldn´t have gotten a pepperoni pizza much faster. Needing to replenish his stash of pot one recent afternoon, the Burbank resident dialed Speed Weed. Within the hour, a driver arrived with a white paper bag carrying a gram of cannabis, 10 joints and a handful of pot-infused candies and cookies. "They come to my house, and they´re in and out," said Reichle, 39, a comedian who spends about $100 a week on medical marijuana. "I shouldn´t have to go to a store." Once a small, word-of-mouth phenomenon, mobile marijuana businesses now number in the hundreds across Southern California.

Border apprehensions reportedly decreased last week, but there aren’t any indications that the tide of Central Americans pouring across the border has ebbed. U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela said Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told him in a briefing July 8 that there was a decline in apprehensions ahead of his trip to Guatemala, one of the nations where the bulk of the immigrants are coming from. (Snip) but say they have heard the recent relief is due to train accidents along the most popular path across Mexico.

Paris- Clashes erupted in Paris on Sunday as thousands of people protested against Israel and in support of residents in the Gaza Strip, where a six-day conflict has left 168 Palestinians dead. Several thousand demonstrators walked calmly through the streets of Paris behind a large banner that read "Total Support for the Struggle of the Palestinian People". But clashes erupted at the end of the march on Bastille Square, with people throwing projectiles onto a cordon of police who responded with tear gas. The unrest continued early Sunday evening as police announced six arrests had been made. A small group tired

In a very underreported story, the Mexican government inked an agreement with Guatemala that would assist citizens from Guatemala in transiting Mexico to get to the US border. Jerome Corsi highlights the 5 areas of cooperation that will make the journey from Guatemala to the US safer: 1. Mexico established for the Central American migrants transiting through Mexico a new Mexican-government issued “Regional Visitor Card” that instructs the Mexican National Institute of Migration to recognize the holder as having been granted by the Mexican government the right to a “temporary stay” in Mexico.

On Saturday, President Obama interrupted his busy schedule of playing pool, drinking beer and jumping lines at BBQ joints to play golf an exclusive private country club in Maryland with ESPN host Michael Wilbon. Not like he has anything else to do, right? There’s nothing unusual about the president hitting the golf course – he’s done it at least a record-setting 177 times over his term. But it’s who he is playing golf with that’s interesting. As IJReview’s current Editor-at-Large Larry O’Connor reported for Breitbart in November 2013, Wilbon made the eyebrow-raising comment: “People can be upset with me if

The United Negro College Fund, whose famous motto is, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” recently accepted a $25 million grant from the Koch brothers. In case you don’t listen to the Democrat’s Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Koch brothers are the “infamous” billionaires who subvert democracy by funding numerous conservative causes and organizations. This has angered the largest government employee’s union in the country – AFSCME. In fact, AFSCME has pulled all of its funding from UNCF and said it will no longer work with them.

(Video) Sunday on ABC´s "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Attorney General Eric Holder blasted former Gov. Sarah Palin´s (R-AK) for her call to impeach President Barack Obama by saying, "She wasn´t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She´s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why." House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other senior Republicans have dismissed Palin´s calls and instead have opted to file a lawsuit against Obama´s executive overreach. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said earlier on the program, "We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment.

The record flood of Central American children crossing the U.S. border is stretching funds and setting off improvisation at public schools. While politicians spend the summer fighting over how to turn back the tide, school leaders across the country are struggling to absorb a new student population the size of Newark, New Jersey. More than 40,000 children, many of them fresh from violent, harrowing journeys, have been released since October to stateside relatives as courts process their cases. "These kids were homesick and heartbroken," said Robin Hamby, a family specialist for Fairfax County Public Schools in suburban Washington,

If you think Michelle´s Well-Toned Arms is a tired cliche, you´re not in delirious love like The Washington Post.

The headline was "Dinner with the first lady, at well-sculpted arm´s length: When a food critic is seated near Michelle Obama, more than the meal is reviewed." It´s a publicity coup for the new restaurant Barcelona in downtown Washington, now that the Post says "it´s already received Obama buzz."

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
