Striking Jeffboat Workers Illegally Threatened

It has been revealed that striking Teamsters at Jeffboat were illegally threatened by the company 10 days ago in a letter mailed to their homes.  The letter, obtained by FOX41 News, states that workers would lose state unemployment benefits if they didn't return to work.  Sadly, this seems to be the operative ethic in American business these days.  There's no word on possible NLRB charges against American Commercial Lines, the operator of Jeffboat, for such an irresponsible and dirty move.

Talks between the company and the union will resume next week.  Stay out boys, until you win.  Some of us are behind you and your families 100%.  If you or someone you know is a Jeffboat worker on the picket line, please send me an email.  I'd like to speak with you. Just click my name above the Blogroll. Confidentiality is assured.
