Controller Union

June 21, 1987

I see where the air controllers have formed a union.

Isn't it a bit ironic that this group of people feel the need for the protection of a union.

This is the same group that rushed in behind the picket lines of Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, the former union and committed the vilest of all union sins. They went to work behind a picket line during a labor dispute.

Andrew Fureseth of the Sailors Union of the Pacific was quoted as saying, "There is no life lower than a scab or a fink."

That fact still holds true today.

If they can't find a good name for their union, perhaps they could call it the "Scabs and Finks Air Controllers Union."
