What The Media Won’t Tell Us About The Union That Killed Hostess

Twinkies SC What the media won’t tell us about the union that killed Hostess

The fake “reporters and journalists” we are forced to put up with have destroyed our sacred freedom of the press. Their lies and half-truths lead trusting readers to only the conclusions they want Americans to reach. The truth about the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers & Grain Millers Union (BCTW&GMU) is a good example of the kind of information the fake media hides from us.

The leadership of the BCTW&GMU is a gang of greedy crooks who are only concerned with filling up the trough they push their snouts into. That trough is constantly refilled with the dues money of workers whose lives mean nothing to these people.

In perfect “Animal Farm” style, the upper leadership of this criminal gang pulls down from two to three times what the average worker they “represent” makes for actually working for a living. For instance, Frank Hurt (a name you couldn’t make up) makes $262,654.00 to “guard the interests” of his members who make about $85,000 a year, which itself is $35,000 more than the average salary for workers across America.

Since 2002, the membership of the BCTW&GMU has fallen by more than 32,000. This is not surprising because while there are no available data after 2009, during the period between 2002 and 2009, an average of more than one workplace a month decertified this monster by direct vote of the workers involved. There you have the reason the unions want “Card Check.”

Anyone familiar with this union would have no trouble spotting the problems that would compel their members to flee at such a rapid pace. In the last ten years, it has racked up 524 unfair labor practice complaints based on its refusal to live up to its “Duty of Fair Representation” (which is pretty much what it did to Hostess and certainly what it did to the members of other unions willing to work for Hostess under its latest offer.)

Given its basic criminal nature, it almost goes without saying that the BCTW&GMU’s recent political contributions have gone 99.73% to Democrats ($1,447,204.00) while it gave Republicans just .0027%, or $4,000.

Isn’t it obvious why we don’t ever hear and/or read figures like these?

  1. Let’s not forget the magnificient glass and steel buildings, the helicopters, the endless secretaries these corrupt men have, also, hiring friends, relatives, etc., and it all begins to sound like a mob operation siphoning “protection” money off of workers who they never really represent or even care for.

  2. The unions did it to themselves big time, we need to lose these arrogant a s s h o l e s!

  3. Unions have outlived their usefulness and now prey upon everyone to satisfy their greed and laziness. I filed a grievance about 20 years ago as a member of a large union. They passed the papers back and forth between management and representative. After several months of this, they both said they agreed that I should be paid for the greivance but "lost" the paperwork. I'm still waiting to be paid. Neither will take responsibility.( this was a govenment union) I quit and will never support unions again. I worked for a living the union rep only showed up to get paid.

      edc. I spent 51 years in industry,26 as a machinist and 25 as a shop supervisor. What a corrupt bunch of bastards. I have had union reps come to me and tell me to "slow down" I was doing too much and they would also threaten us. As a supervisor we had the same problem.After wed. production mtngs they would come around and tell everyone to take it easy and we could probably get a Sat. & maybe even a Sunday,(both days at premium pay) and you wonder why industry has moved off shore. If you would complain to the Co all they could say was we can't do anything about it because they will shut us down! They have ruined the country. Most of the leaders of these union's are Communist. Trumpka,Andy Stern,Hoffa to name a few, now all in bed with Commie Obamie.

    Unions were needed during the industrial revolution to help workers against companies but now they have gotten out of hand.When Hostess has to send 2 trucks out to the same place because bread can't be on the same truck with twinkies then you know some union leader is jerking himself off.Have you ever seen a union leader go with out a check while the worker is going without.Union leaders are like those idiot ragheads who get others to blow themselves up in the name of Allah.

    I started in a union shop in 1950 ,, At that time they had the interest of the worker,,When I retired on a medical which was forced on me by both company and Union and as after my first wife died , I remarried and had two sons in college ,, It did not mater to them ,get out, make way for youth, I was 64,, I had put the amount that i could in company stock , When I retired it was worth about $400,000 , Then it started dropping in value , soI called to move it ,, They said I had no stock , The union took up the fight , 5 years later they found half of it , when it is worth about a dollar ,, I was supposed to have sold it when I lived in Texas,, I never lived in Texasn ow they say 7 years have passed and just forget it'' ,not easy to do as some one stole it,

    • If this happened recently, take the union to court! Two people I know got screwed by the unions they worked for. Most people don't fight or think they can change things…then the union wins. My father-in-law ended up getting back retirement pay and payments; but would not have if there was not a threat to take the union to court. Good luck.

    I wish to comment as a guest: first about this new policy. Maybe I do not understand what it is about, but the first thing I think is I am being throttled from writing what I should be free to do in a public forum. I completely snowed by what all this yellow box is about. You want to explain in plain English what you are doing to my free and open internet?
