    Union members arrested while some cross picket lines!

    There have been reports all over the Verizon turf where picketers are being arrested for unlawful acts of sabotage, violent behavior and obstruction of government vehicles. There has also been reports of several dozen people crossing picket lines and some say that hundreds more plan to do so by the end of the week. Reasons cited were that union members realized that the union execs at the bargaining table bit off more than they could chew by saying that they will not give anything back and not make any concessions. These line crossers decided to go back to work now rather than lose anymore money for lies told to them by their leadership. Many arrests have been made of union members for sabotage, violence, destruction of private property and obstruction of government vehicles all across the area. Namely, several in NYC, Upstate NY and New Jersey. There has also been reports that arrests and citations were handed out for disorderly conduct and public drunkeness (on the picket line, no less).

    This is the union that wants to win public opinion?!?! What example are they setting that will win ANY kind of support?! They are vandalizing Verizon property...knocking out customers phone/DSL/FiOS services...and ruining what little public sympathy that they may have had!!
