    Default No Horses, But Detroit Water Department Employs 'Horseshoer'

    No Horses, But Detroit Water Department Employs 'Horseshoer'
    Yet even with a department so bloated that it has a horseshoer and no horses, the local union president said it is "not possible" to eliminate positions.

    I sure don't. But hey, that is just me. I am a Union man. I am a Steward. I do fight for each and every job we have at my barn. I did read the article and I can read between the lines. What are you missing?

    Please humor us all with a reply and let us see how much Union blood is coursing through your veins.

    The damage to any union's image has already be done by the right wing conservatives that smear real working men and women by telling others that some shouldn't have collective bargaining, contracts with protections, solid pensions and fair living wages.
    Should only some workers be entitled to a union contract ?
    As for the job title which seems to be an issue with the story, do you or anyone really know what the actual person with that job title does in his daily work duties?
    What's with a title.
    Afterall, aren't most of the unions drivers called "driver / salesman" ?

    Now why would you be apologizing for being an American Strappy? A freudian slip perhaps? Or are you apologizing for being an American in a Union? Maybe you conscience is getting the best of you for posting this union busting BS on this proud pro union site? I sure hope so.

    What I find really damaging is the fact that you are so blinded by the right wing BS that you have forgotten or never really cared or understood how one goes about protecting a particular job. Nor do you do anything to defend it in the manner a Union man would. Always looking to condemn. Educating the masses on how particular language is protected goes a long way to securing a Unions image. I sure don't see that in your posts.

    Take a better look there Strappy. I read it as "other duties as assigned" to keep a valuable and much needed job discription around. Since you took the anti Union position, what is it that can be seen through the eyes of a Union buster?

    The city pays $29,245 in salary and about $27,000 in benefits for the horseshoer position.
    This is what they are complaining about???Millions of dollars in back door deals and this is it.
