: Remember when the UPS people went on strike last year? Because they went on strike, Americans were forced to use thier competitors ( The US postal service and Fedex)Even after the strike was resolved, many former loyal customers were so upset at the greedy teamsters that they refused to do business with UPS.

Management should have given in before so much damage was done...

:As a result, UPS lost 10% of thier business and they had to lay off many of the people who striked against them. So I bet those 10% of the workers who were layed off really kicked themselves in the ass for supporting thier strike.

hmmm had to layoff or was it just a pretext to get revenge and lay them off? Its been known. I also doubt if the strike alone caused that sort of permenant loss of profit, but then, intercapitalist competition is one way of keeping the wokers subservient I suppose...
