Misc. Mondays: UnionBook the New Facebook?

Unions started “UnionBook” which is designed solely for trade unions around the world.  Why was UnionBook created?  Because Union members were being blocked from spamming others on more traditional social media platforms.  No joke!  Here’s an excerpt from the AFL-CIO’s blog:

“Union activists are, well, active.  Sometimes that’s a problem on social network sites like FaceBook, MySpace and others that tend to limit an individual’s activity if it exceeds their arbitrary limits. . . If you’re too active doing the kind of networking that we trade unionists do all the time – recruiting friends, sending out messages, and so on – FaceBook can blacklist you and close your account.  This has already happened to a number of union activists.”

Reading between the lines, it is clear that the likes of EFCANOW and the others that litter anything on the Internet that remotely pertains to labor with spam and propaganda have suffered the penalties described above from Facebook.  So now, the union activists all preach to the choir on UnionBook – doesn’t that defeat the purpose of trying to spread their message to the masses?

  1. For all you anti-unionists out there, you should check out the International Union-busters of the World Group on Unionbook. It is a union (a union is really just a group of people, kind of like a family–you aren’t against families are you?) for you to bond with other people and make the transition from anti-labor lawyers to people who actually care about the well-being of every person on the face of the earth, and want to raise the quality of life of humanity. It is a step-by-step process.

    While one person starves in this world, you (we, everyone) are part of the problem.

    Enjoy your veil cutlet while I have my cup of rice.

  2. We are talking “contractual agreement.” We (unions) have a collective bargaining agreement, in a State that honors the right to form a union and make such an agreement. We also have the right to admit anyone of our choosing, based on the criteria of our choosing. Chances that we will vote to admit an anti-unionist are nil.

  4. If it were not for all the Capitalists out there risking their own wealth there would be far fewer jobs for the average man. You expect the government to give you and every person out there a job making how much money doing what? Googled your “International Union-busters of the World Group on Unionbook” and it turns out to be nothing but your own personal rants. You need to chill out some, get out in the sun and enjoy life.

    The Capitalists were here before you and will be here after you are gone.
