Outsourcing Picket Lines

I can't say that I am shocked, but these posts are interesting, none the less.

I have to give the whole UFCW local 5 theatrical scene yesterday a two thumbs down. First, they started late. The union's "rally" was supposed to commence at 5pm. Local 5 has to drive in from out of town so someone is always holding up the show because of bad traffic. Finally, their "rally" got started with a little over twenty people - executive board members, paid organizers, and the hourly non-UFCW folks you've seen in the parking lot who don't speak much English and don't really care what's happening. The manager of Pete's popped her head out the door and told them to take the freak show away from her store. The "rally" walked down the sidewalk and was left circling in front of the plywood of the soon to be opened La Farine French Bakery across from Joe's on Fruitvale Avenue. Their bullhorn broke.

I guess it was about that time I lost interest in the bad production. I walked back to Farmer Joe's entrance and talked to customers. Some were laughing. Some were rolling their eyes. Some wanted harassment forms.

Read it all.
