A few years ago, on a blog nobody reads, there was some stuff about a longshore union folks acting totally not thuggish.

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

 Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, he said….
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union


Helpfully illustrated.



So in today’s exciting episode, we see that the NLRB is accusing them of acting thuggish.

International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU)...

Local 4 members “threatened to rape the daughter of one of the employer’s managers” and implied threats to a manager’s children, chillingly telling the manager that they would “see his children at school” and asking, “Are your children okay today?”…

Hooks also charged union members with following through with physical harm against company workers. Local 4 picketers caused a security officer’s leg to be pinned under a moving vehicle; shone spotlights into vehicles coming in and out of United Grain’s terminal, comprising drivers’ vision and causing permanent eye injury to one security officer; and recklessly pursuing United Grain vans.

Gee, so they committed multiple felonies including kidnapping, destruction of property and threatening to beat people to a pulp and there was one arrest and a piddly $250 thousand fine (for a union with many $millions of assets) and now they’re acting surprised these violent assholes are still acting like violently thuggish assholes.

    That bat looks like brandishing a weapon to me. But what do I know. I know if I did that the police on the left would be telling me to freeze, the ones on the right would be telling me to get on the ground, the ones in the middle would be telling me to raise my hands and the ones in the back would be drawing their guns to shoot me…
