a few years after the lock-out, I started my own small, small business. been getting by ever since. here is my dilemma, I've gotten a call from Crystal Sugar to do some work for them. not a big deal, basically its just a normal job.
I know the Strike was "settled" and the union is "back to work". never the less, I'm still having this nauseous feeling at the thought of entering that place.
Should I do the job? or should I say I'm too busy? thanks for your help....

If you decide to not take the job offer, be upfront and tell them the truth. If you can not tell them the truth, do not return their calls, let them wonder. Crystal Sugar is a SCAB company.


Here are the issues: Do you do the work that was struck? The strike was resolved so there is no more issue, correct? Will your work keep someone from being recalled? Are you part of a union that was or is represented?

The Dilemma is this, You are questioning if it's okay to go work for this company because of past scabs and issues? If going to work for them is to make you feel like a scab then it would be the same for any striking worker to return to work for any company that did the same thing.

For example The big D work may not be the place to work then, since, everyone who works for them would be basically a scab. Even the Honorable returners would basically be in that bucket, logically a scab company supporter (just a logic statement).

Personally I would not work for the Big D but people are returning and doing so, working right along side of scabs...If you take a flight on the big D then same thing.

If there is still a fight going on at Crystal then I wouldn't do the work there. If there isn't, decide if the money is what you need. If you have no correlation between the strike and what you do, then you are free to go.

Enjoy either way

subject ~ I also moved on
message ~

One of the honorable asked for stories of those who have moved on. I pretty much knew that day in August 2005 that it was my last day as an Airline Mechanic . I worked day line on the old green concourse and loved my job .I was hired by the Rail Road in oct 2005. A rocky road to say the least but I have never regretted my decision to leave NWA. It ceased to exist as we knew it in August 2005. I could not have gone back in there on my knees and kissed ass for a job that was no longer the same and offered no respect for me .I will retire from the R/R this year with a R/R retirement. I worked very hard for ten years to get here but I've almost made it and am so pleased that I did not stay or go back. I promised myself that I would not let those bastards ruin my life and that I would persevere . It was tough. But I made it. My best thoughts go out to all the honorable. I think of all of you often and wish you all the best .

No one advocated tearing scabs up more than our boy Mary. He had to take pills to stay calm, on a regular day.

Then dumb dee dumb dumb THE STRIKE!!! I know of no one who fell apart more than Mary, Queen of Scabs. Mary left his long time buddies and joined the cruds who were right there coaching him about it being ok to cross. It didn't take much.

"I want my job back" "I want my job back" "I want my job back" got his job back

Jeez, what a blowhard! A disagreeable troublemaker before the strike, self serving in the extreme. Is it any surprise that most of the people we didn't particularly like, became scabs?


Good point there! Those co-workers that I liked and considered friends not just acquaintances stayed out to the man. There were those I was friendly with because it was just easier to keep an eye on them, but I knew they were out for themselves, well, many of them became scabs. Of course it wasn't their fault (LOL) it was always someone else's fault they crossed. Poor scab

When it came time for the scabs to show what they were made of, they abandoned guys like us and coalesced with fellow scum.

This ass took out a loan before the strike to carry him through, was interviewed at strike headquarters had his brothers, wife and other family members there and in front of everybody said they were in it for the long hall. That lasted about three months. Just another loud mouth.


Scab comstock did not make 3 months, at the most about 2 months, Scab comstock re financed his home every chance he could to pay for boats, vacations, cabin, and right before the strike. Arrogant piece of sh*t. Rot in hell you arrogant POS.

"How many people made bad career moves after northwest? It would be interesting to hear the good and the bad."

I did well. Finished with a high salary and now collecting an unbelievable generous pension. The thing that get's lost in this type of question, is everybody, meaning all employee's, had a career move. The airline all of us worked at ceased to operate in the manner we knew August 2005. It became a miserable employer. Delta has an active get the red out campaign to this day. Pity the ones that could not move on.

career moves


How many people made bad career moves after northwest? It would be interesting to hear the good and the bad.

I had 26 years seniority at NWA. I walked across the street and got a job working on another airplane. What I missed most was the vacation and sick leave I had accrued over the years.
I would have liked to have had a few more years and retired out under normal circumstances but it just didn't work out that way. To this day I do not regret for one minute NOT crossing my own picket line and begging to be taken back in. Self respect...



Ditto, lets hear more. Show the dirty scabs what real people do to support a family.

Scabs, for obvious reasons not one of you should see the movie, American Sniper.
Now, if you do see the movie, please remember this: YOU COULDN"T EVEN HOLD A F***ING SIGN. Chris Kyle had a family too. If he were made from the same material as you, the scab, he would have hauled ass, then given the excuse, "hey guys I have a family back home to support" (Get what I mean here scab boy?) See the analogy???

You scab scum have no business desecrating a movie theater to view such a movie. His life was on the line (yours wasn't) He didn't run (you did)

Aside from our family of Honorable who didn't for one reason or another, make it back inside, no one really gives a sh*t. We care because we were there and we still feel what it was like to get f**ked by those we trusted to hold the line with us. But aside from us, no one really cares anymore. (very few cared then) I still hate the despicable scabs not for what they did so much, but they couldn't even bring themselves to admit they just didn't have the balls to stay out on strike. (I guess that goes with being a scab)

Last night the country tuned in to watch The State of The Union. So Why are unions thought of as a bad thing? Without the idea of standing united this country never would of been. And now because of the hatred for unions this country is divided. As GW said... you are either with us or agan us. That's blue blood Texan for against us.

Scab of the day list Chris Jorgenson or "I had a family to support Jorgenson" Yes you did scab prick, so did a thousand other men. You slipped into a cushy airline job, most likely the first job you ever had. You voted to authorize the strike then you got cold feet and came up with the old "I had a family to support" excuse. Thousands of men one hellava lot better than you paid the price for trusting cock***kers like you and your POS scab buddies. The company has my respect for hiring pricks like you. When things heated up they knew they could count on bastards like you to cut and run. When you look at that baby face in the morning, try to remember how many other real men had families to support just like you. POS white trash!

Did any of you read the "Daily Mail" ? They state 800,000 Muslims in Chechnya, Russia, staged a march Praising the Murders Of the Charlie Hebdo office.
What? Muslims even in Russia? Read on Protests in Pakistan, Iran, and in Niger, they even set fire to 45 Christian churches, killing 5, injuring 128.
What is going on?? I like to wear a cross necklaces, but now I am afraid. I am Catholic.
People, Women, in Iran, were protesting, Frances law that they couldn't wear full headdress, the kind that shows only their eyes, to apply for their French Visas. Hello! Then why don't they just stay in their own countries?!
I think we might all be as dumb as the original native Americans were, in welcoming the pilgrims for the first Thanksgiving. (By letting all these immigrants infiltrate us all over the place.) Thanks for what? What did the American Indians ever gain from that? Invading them, slowly taking over their culture, their resources, their land. Will we learn anything from history, our will just continue to be "Politically correct, and Cultural acceptant." Turn a blind eye, do what they, have and are doing to us.
Yeah, well they said on CNN today, it says in the Koran, if your country isn't doing well, you should go out and establish footholds in other more prosperous countries.
Really?
What is going on? Even Parts of Russia are extremists Muslims now?
You talk about scabs. What is more scabbier then pretending to immigrate to a country, for poverty, for war like conditions, in your own country, then trying to spread that hostility and back stab, and terrorize your adopting country. That is scabbier , than scabby.

Really, Id like to wear my cross tomorrow, around my neck, not my scarf around my head, but I can't say, I won't be for the first time in my life, to be afraid to wear a Christian cross.

If you are afraid to wear your cross, then they have won.

Thanks to the Scabs the union is gone. What's left is At Will Employment. This is what you get with At Will... I was offered a job, the job paid better than the job I was working, but not enough to say yes. So the new employer offered to give the lost vacation time up front. Meaning I'd make more and suffer no loss. So I took them up on their offer. A year later they simply up and fired me. So... I made an appointment with a lawyer to find out how much their employee handbook meant when it comes to terminations. As it turns out the handbook means nothing when hired as an At Will employee. The handbook is used as an enticement to give you a false sense of having some sort of avenue if something goes wrong. Enticement, by itself is against the law, but not when it comes to drawing you into an At Will employment job. The company can say and promise whatever it wants to get you on board, but owes you nothing when you are At Will. So if you want the job take it, but don't ever think their printed handbook has an once of meaning. You are At Will, and they have nothing to fear by enticing you to work for them. When we became a Human Resource we became less than human. And thanks to the Scabs and their assistance in killing unions, the only protection we have today is the integrity of the company you work for! And when all of the power is in their hands it is a fools bet too think you matter!

We went to France last summer, flew on our retirement benefits, yes we are retirees. But we gave our heart and soul to your/our cause, and the strike.
I couldn't believe Frances response to their terrorists attack last week. One and a half Million, marched, paraded down one of the broad avenues, of Paris.
We did nothing like that after our 911. We cowered in our houses.
I am soo proud of them! I have family living in Paris, so I couldn't help but watch all the events, unfolding s like a hawk.
If we had that kind of spirit here, in Minnesota, Wed still have our own airline. We would still have our jobs. Still have a sense of pride, about about our regional area. Yeah, now the Northwest, has been overtaken, by the Southerners. Few feel the loss, except us.
I say Hats off to the French ! They know how to unite! They are the ones who gave us the statue of Liberty, after all. They know how to march in the streets!! They have historically, always been very rebellious, defiant, they do border 7 other countries. Can any other country claim that? Yes unity, has always been very important to them.
Unfortunately, not to Americans. We just think we will live off of our riches forever. We have little sense of protecting and defending each other. We just want to get as rich as we can, have no feeling, for paying back to our country, or protecting our fellow countrymen.
The French, on the other hand, refer to themselves all as "Children of their country", Les Enfants de la Payee. Could you imagine, how much farther our warnings about outsourcing, would have gone down, differently, if this country, had a sense of nationality still?
If we cared about our neighbors, If it bothered us, to see them forced to sell their homes?
Things could have been so different.

We are not the great "Melting Pot", of the 1950s anymore. We have become the "Great Grabbing Pot" ; Grab all you can for yourselves, f**k everyone else around you.
No , I am not proud to be American anymore, but I am very proud of my family members in France.

So what good did marching do for France? It may have made them feel better.


You are no longer proud to be an American and claim we stand for nothing yet you tell us in the same breath that you flew scabair to France? It appears that what's good for the goose doesn't apply to the gander. Not every American is strictly out for themselves. Right this minute millions of men and women are serving in the U.S. military all over the world (the same one that saved your family from Hitler). They do this willingly so you and the Mrs. have the freedom to take little trips with your retirement passes. The vast majority of Americans would gladly join the fight against Muslim extremists if given the chance. Who the enemy is and what there objectives are will never be told by today's liberal media. This enemy has no regard for life, not even there own or those of their children. It is a culture of death and misery. What France needs to do is round up every friend and family member of the terrorists responsible and guillotine them in front of the Eiffel Tower. That would send a clear message to anyone else interested in becoming a martyr for the cause of a global caliphate.
