    California Borax Miners Locked Out

    by James Parks

    Some 540 workers were locked out of the giant Rio Tinto Borax mine in Boron, Calif., Jan. 31 after the workers, members of International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 30, unanimously rejected the company’s latest contract offer. The company shut off further contract talks and brought in replacement workers.

    This country is headed into the toilet. The best days of America are behind us, unless we can unite the workers in the country.

    If you figure a way let me know. Most people now adays find it easier to cry and whine than get involved and help themselves and others around them. Always seem to blame someone else for their problems.

    Sad to see what the citizens of this Great Country are willing to accept for themselves and those around them.

    I just got the book from that union busting 101 thread guy. He tore a mining town in Ohio apart in one of his union busting things...He acknowledges all the evils he did and admits that he had to write the book for reconciliation for the evils he has done.to help him recover from alcoholism..He wrote it in 1993. Point being....he knows we are the good and they are the evil and my opinion on that is good will prevail..eventually.

    I know of a Local in New York that was having a labor problem and when scabs and security went back to their hotel there was about 150 union members with fog horns and all kinds of noise makers, it was very funny and yes they were asked to leave and find another place to stay .After the second hotel no one would let them stay and yes no more labor problems.
