    Default 'We're Teamsters, we're Republican and we vote -- but not for anti-worker politicians

    Dozens of Pennsylvania Teamsters are standing with York County legislators to denounce H.B. 1507 as a bill that hurts all union members and working people.

    Fred Wilson, president of Teamsters Local 776, in Harrisburg, Pa., said the bill is nothing more than a flat-out attack on workers' rights. It would prevent employers from honoring employees' voluntary request to deduct dues automatically from their paychecks. Said Wilson:

    Attacking middle-class families should never be a partisan issue.

    Great Story , it does not matter if your a Republican or Democrat , it all comes down to Union vs. R.T.W.
    Remember the Teamsters endorsed Nixon , Reagan , and Bush sr. , all 3 played ball with the Unions , if the Republicans want a comeback , they better smarten up and start playing ball with the unions .

    I am not knocking my Republican friends because as I have said many times on this site, I do agree with some conservative ideas (tired of public education, I'm pro life) but current Republican politicians our so out to get and destroy unions. IMO it has become one of their primary focuses. I do say the too many Democrats are passive about it now, don't seem to care either way even though they say they do. But when it comes to labor issues, because of what I am seeing now, I don't think I could ever vote Republican.

    PA Teamsters Stand Against Paycheck Deception Bill
    Teamster members and leaders joined with York County legislators to denounce what has been termed the ‘Paycheck Deception Bill’ (House Bill 1507) at a press conference today.

    “This bill is nothing more than a flat-out attack on workers’ rights,” said Fred Wilson, President of Teamsters Local 776, in Harrisburg, Pa. “Attacking middle-class families should never be a partisan issue.

    “Paycheck Deception is the product of the Koch Brothers, the same guys who have been weakening workers’ rights throughout the country to hurt the struggling American middle-class and outsource our jobs overseas,” Wilson said.

    I think the Republican Party needs to STOP getting involved with ANYONE who is with the Tea Party , they are the downfall of the Republicans chance of ever winning .
