Boeing Co. employees vote to disband union The Post and Courier - Charleston SC newspaper

Quote:
Boeing Co. workers in North Charleston voted overwhelmingly to disband their union in a move that could give the region an edge in landing an aircraft plant the company is looking to build.

Of the 267 ballots cast, 199 were in favor of decertifying the election that made them members of the International Association of Machinists. The company was pleased; the union was disappointed.
These are some very smart people.

Now, if this would spread around the country, it would be a great thing.

Hopefully this will serve as a model for other union members that they can think for themselves and don't need a parasitic union.

Now let's see management lower their unheard of levels of greed and false sense of entitlement.

Only in the obama age; profit = bad, bad, bad.

Who would want to invest in a company that doesn't make a profit?

Only with the hypocritical NeoConfused is unbounded corporate greed with management pillaging bleeding companies for every $ they can while the company goes down the tubes good while anything aimed at helping an average worker is SOCIALISM!

Try reading AND understanding sometime! I NEVER said anything about profit OR profit being bad. Apparently you develop that convenient NeoConused amnesia when mention is made of the management teams that have run companies into the ground while bleeding them dry.

Here we have 199 people who are not afraid to rely on their own abilities and not have a union force the employer to compensate them more than they are worth. Looks like there are still 68 people who believe they can't cut it on their own without the union covering for them.

This is very good news and we can only hope just the beginning to the downfall of gang of unions.

The folks the left the union have drilled the pilot holes for the screwing they are about to get. Their choice, their problem.

I do not disparage good managers but I would like them to take a reasonable salary and sent the rest to the stock holders or employee bonuses. INHO no manager is worth millions, none.

Wouldn't it be great if businesses were forced to pay managers more than they are worth?
