Walter UpHoff has another view on this matter, and he critizies Petro’s views. Petro says the strike vote was 1105 to 148. He says the workers did not stay away from the polls as Petro suggests. Well how about this- were the votes actually counted?? Where’s the proof?
1983 strike was voted on at 4pm on a Sunday, by 5:30 pm the picketers were already blocking off the entrences at Kohler. Now this is a union of over 5000workers , don’t tell me all the votes were counted. Also free beer is served before and during the union meeting, and the leaders of the union read off some of the negotiation conflicts or dibuties with the company, and then recommend to agree or negate the contract. This is the groupthink part where they tell you what to do. Then after they decide to vote no, they lobby the exits of the company with their refreshments(beer) and lay down sawdust & nails for the non-union employees to drive over.
