Seattle's newest commie council member urges Boeing workers to seize factories
#1
Quote:Here’s the inevitable follow-up on the election of a Socialist to the Seattle City Council — although perhaps sooner than anyone would have thought.

Boeing has tried working for years with its unions in the state of Washington, but still cannot reach agreements on labor contracts for its manufacturing facilities.

The aerospace giant has looked for other regions in the US to build its planes, which has angered the unions and the Obama administration.

It’s also provided an opportunity for Seattle’s newest councilmember to launch her anti-capitalist agenda, and she’s wasted no time in doing so … even before officially taking office:

Seattle City Councilmember-elect Kshama Sawant told Boeing machinists her idea of a radical option, should their jobs be moved out of state

Quote:“The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” Sawant announced to a cheering crowd of union supporters in Seattle’s Westlake Park Monday night. …

Sawant is calling for machinists to literally take-possession of the Everett airplane-building factory, if Boeing moves out. She calls that “democratic ownership.”


So what wouldn’t be “economic terrorism”? Seizing the company’s property, of course:


Quote:“The only response we can have if Boeing executives do not agree to keep the plant here is for the machinists to say the machines are here, the workers are here, we will do the job, we don’t need the executives.

The executives don’t do the work, the machinists do,” she said.

Yeah like she's gonna have any huge backing and say as a district council member up in SEATTLE, when Boeing is all the way down south in Everett.

I applied for an apprenticeship with a well-known union in the Philadelphia area. I passed my written test, nailed the interview (I impressed the entire panel with what I had to say, and they were surprised to discover how I constantly got dicked over when it came time for a raise), but I didn't get in. Later I found out through a friend who has several members of his family in the union that I didn't get in because "too many of the other applicants had family members in the union." Screw them! I will vote for and fully support any politician who wants PA to become a right to work state (Assuming they aren't anti-2A).

I'm not really that familiar with Right to Work and what its purpose is. Does this have to do with a worker having the freedom of choice to pay dues and be part of the union or keep that money and not be in it?

Quote:A "right-to-work" law is a statute in the United States that prohibits union security agreements, or agreements between labor unions and employers, that govern the extent to which an established union can require employees' membership, payment of union dues, or fees as a condition of employment, either before or after hiring. "Right-to-work" laws do not, as the short phrase might suggest, aim to provide a general guarantee of employment to people seeking work, but rather are a government regulation of the contractual agreements between employers and labor unions that prevents them from excluding non-union workers, or requiring employees to pay a fee to unions that have negotiated the labor contract all the employees work under.

that's correct..... they can't force you to join the union to get the job.
In PA for example, is not a right to work state, if a company has employees represented by a union you must join the union to get be employed there
