I’ve Never Been a Big Fan of Fire-Based EMS…

… but this just stinks to high heaven.

Come to think of it, I have a lot of misgivings about union shops, as well. But these medics paid their dues, and were apparently happy with their union representation. Now the city of Filthydelphia, in an apparent move to weaken the firefighter’s union in future collective bargaining agreements, has used the apparently tame Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board as their Halligan tool to engage in a little union-busting.

That’s the kind of shady politics that would be right at home in Louisiana… during the Huey P. Long administration.
