NLRB calls out Target

It looks like the real thugs these days aren’t the unions as the right-wing would have you think. The real thuggery is from corporations like Target.

The Brooklyn body of the National Labor Relations Board has gathered more evidence that Target intimidated workers by threatening to close a store if a union was approved in a vote this summer.

The new charges could be enough evidence for an administrative law judge to recommend that the election results be overturned, Alvin Blyer of the regional NLRB told the Minnesota Independent.

Also, circulating on the Internet is an anti-union video that Target makes its employees watch. While Target is not as horrible as Wal-Mart they’re not too far behind.
