If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

Teamsters Local 731 Loses Unfair Labor Practice

Reported by The National Right To Work Foundation Legal Defense Foundation May 29th:

Where did this occur? The Windy City, of course. Union bosses of Local 731 ordered the **seven off the job during a strike by UNITE HERE in July, 2006. The **seven, truck drivers for Lechner and Sons, continued to work (perhaps they needed to feed their families) and were ratted out by seven other brothers of Local 731. After the strike ended in June 2007, the local levied fines, totaling more than $200K, against the **seven.

The **seven, with legal assistance from The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation filed an Unfair Labor Practice against the local and eventually prevailed with the local dropping the fines and refunding part of their dues that were illegally withheld.

For my part, congrats to the members who fought and won! A round of applause to The National Right To Work Legal Defence Foundation. Boo Hiss to the seven I think of as union toady rats (although I'd suspect they were just the tools):

**Note - There are only six members named in the Local 731 Charge and Fine Notice
