    UNION Brothers and Sisters!

    This morning I had to be on a picket line for 6:00am on an ongoing job that non-union glaziers doing my work. There were only 3 of us that could attend on surprise notice and that`s all we needed!

    EVERY UNION trade approached us at the gate, asked the proper questions, made contact with their supervisor and Agents and guaranteed our success by not crossing our line.

    various business Agents called and visited us to give a lending hand!

    I was amazed at the solidarity that I once knew still exsisted. We shut the job down!!!
    all union: Electricians, Fitters, Tin knockers, brickies, laborers, carpenters etc all Honored our line!...
    and all delivery trucks turned around and left, even a scheduled crane.

    That message that went sent to the GC was huge in so many way!...

    I was very proud to participate as I was in my proactive stance!...

    thought I`d share to some of you UNION brothers and sister out here!...

    US based corporations have single-handed brought back the need for unions with the outsourcing...

    Thank God we will be bailing out the foreign based banks soon.

    We have to wait a few days before we can do this again if they don`t comply with the regulations set forth by the counsel and the state of NJ.

    besides it has way better effect when there is a few days in between, kinda catches them off guard...
