Rubashkin Loses NLRB Case: Failed Messiah reports

As usual, Failed Messiah has scooped an interesting tidbit on Rubashkin. Seems that a few days ago, NLRB heard an appeal from Rubashkin and found against them that if one’s employees vote to unionize, one cannot claim that undocumented aliens are prohibited from unionizing because they do not qualify as “employees” protected by the National Labor Relations Act, and thus refuse to bargain with them or recognize the vote.
Since the NLRB under the recent administrations has acted more and more partisanly – i.e. finding almost uniformly against labor, or handing out slaps on the wrists so light the companies have to scratch after because the contact tickles, I can only say, the case must have been unbelievably chutzpadik, which a few words from Circuit Judge Tatel seems to confirm, “Because the company’s argument ignores both the Act’s plain language and binding Supreme Court precedent, we deny its petition for review.…”
See FM for more: good work, dude!
Every day in every way, Rubashkin finds new ways to improve! Congrats on your award for Worst Ongoing Scandal; it’s nothing if not well deserved!

  1. Wow. You really hate these guys. Why must you feel the need to be FM’s puppet?
    Let me just remind you ….
    “I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God.” —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
    You abuse your place on this blog to give a wider audience to someone who has made it his life’s mission to speak only hate and loshan hora about Chabad and any people who are Chabad.

  2. Correction — it appears that what happened on 1/4/08 was not a decision of the NLRB, but a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit affirming a 2006 decision of the NLRB.
    A quick read of the D.C. Circuit decision suggests that the company’s argument was not really hutzpadik. The decision was 2-1, and the concurring opinion indicates that the second judge in the majority thought it a pretty close case.

  3. Go Cee ! The uni-focused hate bloggers are so boring. I read jewschool for its out of the box thinking. For the most part I’ve felt that the regime change at jewschool has spared us of the anti-chabad anti kiruv rants “warning” us of the evil that lurks. For that I am thankful.
    Funny,hip,alterative- YES

  4. Isn’t it a bit futile to organize a union while at the same time illegal aliens are entering the country and the job market thus driving wages down?
    Doesn’t this undermine the negotiating power of the union?
    It is ofcourse possible to pay your workers a high wage while hiring less of them which will lead to more unemployment or employ more of them while paying them less.
    The union should have done itself a favor and kicked the illegals out themselves.
