    The union is left with no choice, they are going to have to kick the crap out of some boy scouts! Here's the story (freaken losers.....the SEIU that is)


    After layoffs, SEIU president complains about city's use of volunteers, contractors

    In pursuit of an Eagle Scout badge, Kevin Anderson, 17, has toiled for more than 200 hours hours over several weeks to clear a walking path in an east Allentown park.

    Little did the do-gooder know that his altruistic act would put him in the cross hairs of the city's largest municipal union.

    Nick Balzano, president of the local Service Employees International Union, told Allentown City Council Tuesday that the union is considering filing a grievance against the city for allowing Anderson to clear a 1,000-foot walking and biking path at Kimmets Lock Park.

    "We'll be looking into the Cub Scout or Boy Scout who did the trails," Balzano told the council.

    Balzano said Saturday he isn't targeting Boy Scouts. But given the city's decision in July to lay off 39 SEIU members, Balzano said "there's to be no volunteers." No one except union members may pick up a hoe or shovel, plant a flower or clear a walking path.

    "No one except union members may pick up a hoe"

    If they'd stop picking up hoes, they might still have jobs, lazy bassers :happy0001:

    This mentality is a perfect example of the failing auto industry, the union is telling the city what is allowed and not allowed? Excuse me but you work for the city it's not the other way around.

    It's also nice to know the thugs are going to look into the scout that did the trails.... what the hell does that even mean?

    Another good reason to live in Texas. They couldn't pull that crap here. Those Rust Belt states need to wise up.
