and guess what there Boudreaux…just because HGIM FUCKED their guys like this doesn’t make ECO suddenly the shining castle in the swamp. Had HGIM (or any other of the bayoo companies) had a collective bargaining agreement with their mariners, such criminal actions wouldn’t be permitted to happen. There would be a contract which the mariners could use to file suit against the company but you loathe collective bargaining don’t you, even though it protects you.
WHY DON’T YOU GoM PEEBRAINS GET IT THROUGH YOUR UNBELIEVABLY THICK SKULLS THAT THE SINGLE BIGGEST BENEFIT TO BEING PART OF AN ORGANIZED WORKERS COLLECTIVE (ie A UNION) IS THAT YOU WORK WITH A LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT. WITHOUT ONE ALL YOU HAVE IS STATE AND FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT LAW TO PROTECT YOU AGAINST THE BOSS WHICH IN LOUISIANA IS NOTHING. JEAUX HAS THE DECK ENTIRELY IN HIS HANDS TO PLAY AND YOU DON’T EVEN HOLD A SINGLE LOUSY DEUCE…MAYBE A JOKER BUT THAT’S IT!
but who am I to say any of this except the guy who was saying it over and over before it actually happened and y’all suddenly lost so much of what you thought you had “earned”. Back then, there were very, very few here who agreed with my warnings and you went about whistling while you worked until the day Joe’s goons showed up on the dock. Well you got the shiv for no other reason but you turned your back and allowed it to be thrust in between your own shoulder blades…congratulations
