    One of the biggest obstacles organizers face in the south is ignorance. Most folks no nothing about unions other than what has been programmed into them by the anti union establishment.

    Early one morning years ago we were on a peaceful informational picket line at Overnite in Carteret NJ. Our cars we parked out of the way across on the Woodbridge side of Blair Rd. The Woodbridge cops (PBA union members) started writing tickets. The Carteret cops told us to move our cars onto their side of the street. They were also union members but they belonged to the Teamsters union.

    I think over 300 people were contractually allowed to follow their work to SC. The police watched my dad and his buddies from rooftops when they moved there. It took them 2 years or so to get the union in. 2 years minimum of being treated like dirt, working for half the pay and watched like criminals in public.

    You have now entered the Twilight Zone.

    Fast growing XPO Logistics, which is on track to earn $15 Billion in 2016, is now the biggest trucking company at the Port of Savannah. The company’s sketchy business model illegally classifying its employee drivers as “independent contractors” at U.S. ports and rail yards is fueling profits, but has XPO in hot water with the law. In So. California alone, XPO faces a potential liability due to driver misclassification as “independent contractors” of more than $200 million. So the last thing XPO wants is to have drivers in Georgia unionizing.

    And, it seems they want to remain ignorant. Years back, I spent a few weeks as IBT organizer in NC, (which really is not deep south), and made little progress.
    Most would refuse to talk , one woman jumped in front of her husband, gave me the evil eye,
    and said I was the devil.... but maybe that was because I was a yankee.

    A good freind and fellow steward (CabLizzard) that retired and moved to Louisiana has many stories to tell about the folks down there. The way he tells it is, "They know nothing about unions other than they don't need one and bitch about how poorly they're treated by their employers."
