Union thugs. If unions don’t get their way they’ve got thugs. And they’ll use them.
Dyer Baptist Church in Dyer, Indiana – Fishers of Men – is expanding. They’re in the midst of a construction project and Iron Workers Local 395 got upset because the church didn’t hire union workers for their construction project.
Iron Workers Local 395 officials were adamantly opposed to Dyer Baptist Church using nonunion construction workers. Local 395 Business Agent Thomas Williamson Sr. demanded the project be turned over to his union, but the onsite workers and the church pastor refused. D5 Iron Works President Richard Lindner allegedly told Williamson on numerous occasions that he was trespassing and he should leave. After several failed attempts, the lawsuit alleges, Williamson arrived with some associates Jan. 7 and physically attacked the nonunion workers.
“Men associated with Local 395 appeared at the job site,” the lawsuit, which was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, stated. “After exiting the respective vehicles, the Local 395 Assault Team rushed the job site.”
The union thugs came into the site with clubs and attacked the workers. Here’s the result of their attack on one of the non-union workers.
The victims have filed a $3,000,000 lawsuit against Local 395 and we hope they put the union thugs out of business.
In other union related news, it’s looking like the U.S. Supreme Court will be putting unions – especially public sector unions – out of business in a few months. They’re following Governor Scott Walker’s lead in Wisconsin where, following the passage of Act 10, union membership has dropped by two-thirds and the Democratic Party in Wisconsin is out of money.
