    Default Setback for Scalia in Attempt to Curtail Labor Rights

    But in the cartoonish worldview of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, such agreements are merely an exercise in thuggish union intimidation. During the hearing for the recent case, UNITE HERE Local 355 v. Mulhall, Chief Justice John Roberts tried to paint a scenario of a union organizer who "comes up to you" and acts coercively, as Scalia rushed to add his own flourishes to the tale, interrupting to say: "And he's a big guy . . ."

    "[Scalia's] still working off this weird stereotype of union thugs, like On The Waterfront," says Moshe Marvit, a Pittsburgh labor lawyer who has written about the case extensively. "They've painted this as an antidemocratic civil rights issue where workers are losing their right to have a free and fair election."

    Great Story Mrs. New Mexico , All Federal Judges are appointed for life by a President , once again the unions need to stop giving money out to these politicians until they know there stand on Organized Labor , and if the response is not 100 percent in favor of Organized Labor , then the unions need to pull back on endorsing anyone and giving money to there campaign .
