    Default “We have the right to educate you”: Workplace indoctrination caught on tape

    I would guess this is just about the way it is anywhere that workers are trying to organize. Glad someone caught this on tape!

    Both clips were recorded by Duluth, Ga., employees of Iron Mountain, a document storage company. Workers in a driving and shredding unit have petitioned to join the Teamsters union, triggering a government-supervised election scheduled for late November – and what organizers charge is a coercive campaign of surveillance, retaliation and anti-union lectures designed to keep the company 97 percent union free.
    In the first recording, a man identified by the Teamsters as Iron Mountain department manager Scott Krieg confronts employee Wayne Walker about his involvement in the union drive. Krieg says, “I know what you did, Wayne. It’s all out. There’s – there’s no secrets anymore. There’s no – I know about this meeting. I know about the card-signs.” Krieg also tells Walker, “I was a little disappointed at the fact that you went and did that without at least telling me upfront,” and “I am upset with you personally because of what I’ve done for you in the past.” Krieg closes by saying, “If that’s what you want to do, by means do it if you think that’s what’s best for your family, but just make sure you’re educated.” The week after the conversation, Walker was fired by Iron Mountain.

    Education by another name ... or as quoted, “We have the right to educate you, and we’re gonna exercise that right.”
    I believe it's called propaganda.
