Come on. You started a thread outside of the union thread with a title that only mentioned your "friend's" heart attack, and then devoted half the post to calling out a specific consulting firm and persuader that you've mentioned before. Just because you didn't say it doesn't mean you didn't say it. Just like the dolly cracks thread, where you pretend to hide an attack on the maintenance department behind your deep concern for our welfare. It's not the first time I've seen it, and not just from you, and I don't believe it's genuine. It's straight out of the union sales playbook- we love the workers, care deeply about your future, but that evil company is out to get you and, my goodness, we've got to do something about it because we care. It's dishonest and it's an insult to our intelligence. You and your new friends are out for you and your friends. On the other hand, you've got a bright future with the union once you get tired of waiting for that contract (that you'll never see). They always need more missionaries.
