Cong. Carnahan Supports Miners’ Right to Organize, While He Votes to Destroy Their Industry!

July 6th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

From Justice at Peabody (union website)

U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) today pledged his support for coal miners employed at Peabody Energy Corp. who are trying to form a union, and urged the company to remain neutral in the miners’ struggle for unionization. Peabody is headquartered in St. Louis near Carnahan’s congressional district.

“I support the rights of all Americans to organize in their workplaces,” said Carnahan. “Today I stand with coal miners from Peabody Energy and encourage them in their efforts to organize with the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA), and I urge Peabody Energy to remain neutral when it comes to its employees’ choice to form a union.” Read more…

What sense does this make? How are you going to organize a workplace – that if “Cap & Trade” Carnahan and the green Nazis had their way – wouldn’t exist? We know of one industry the Congressman is fighting to advance. What’s that old saying: “blood is thicker than water?”
