I had one try and card me in Chicago. Im non union and the job was non union just me on site, I was tarping a load of debris when he walked up. No proper introduction to his name just that he was with the union and asked if I was union and if so to see my card. I said no im sorry im not part of any union so cant help you with that. He asked for my name and I said Im sorry I did not catch your name?  He again did not give a name just a union name.. So I politely said ok I think were done here, The company name is on the door, if you have any more questions they can help you. I dont just give out my name to random people just as you dont feel the need to either but Im sure we both understand.  I pulled the truck out to the street and walked back and asked again that he please leave the site. He ignored and continued to talk on his cell phone. He again refused my polite but 3rd order to leave.  So with him ranting on the phone. I said im closing and and locking the gate.  As I started walking back to the truck he started to talk with a different tune.  I Said have a great day, I will be notifying the company owner of your refusal to leave the site when asked continually. I will contact the owner of the property as well and I suggest he leave before the building owner gets involved and puts trespassing charges on him.  boss later found out who he was and thru connections made sure he did no come back to bother us.... its not what you know its who you know here in the city...

Hilariously crazy union nut 41! As a United Steel Workers member I commend your restraint and recommend non lethal pistol whips to his forehead and likewise mine if I ever get that “union stupidified”.

What a piece of sh*t! And people wonder why WORKING Americans hate the unions (yes SOME working Americans work for unions I understand ya got to do what ya got to do) so much and how unions are chasing jobs out of country for cheap labor. You should've just backed your truck over his ride.

Trespassing and the trooper asked if I wanted to accuse him of attempted car jacking. Trespassing in my area of Va is only a $250 fine.   First time I ever pulled my Calico Liberty pistol , I think the trooper fell in lust with it.

Got a big load of river rock in my M920 this morning to back fill my bridge piers. Open the gates at the Rte 15 end of my road, pull in and before i pushed the button to close the gates my phone rang.  As I'm answering the phone a white SUV pulls in behind me and a man  gets out with a clip board. Now I'm over loaded by 12 tons so I think it's VA DOT. The man asks me if I'm union and demands to see my card. Now I'm on private property and working on my own project with a load of my own stone, so I told him no F.n way. My property, my materials and no outside company doing anything.  now he goes to open my door, So I tell him if he opens my door and attempts to climb up ,I'll shoot him. Called 911, put the phone on speaker and informed the  operator that I had a person attempting to enter my truck for my side and I have the phone on speaker and I am armed and will shoot if he enters my cab. He asked where I was, gave him my address and informed him I was 1/4 mile up my driveway inside my gate.  Mean while Hoffa wanna be is on his phone it is legal for him as a union rep to stop at any site and card me. Va State police showed up, after he told the officer it was legal to enter my property in a 1945 court ruling he was informed it is a private residence and if I wish to press charges he'll be arrested and how he's lucky because  had every right to shoot him. As he was escorted off my property he informed me he'll be back as the union has every legal right to enter my property.   Sure made an interesting morning, would have been even more so if I used my Calico

 

Should've shot the f$&@er problem solved.

"Carding" is pretty rare and a waste of time, a Teamster official can just check the Titan database to see who is a member. Usually no need for that, just industry knowledge and a little common sense will tell you if a worker should be paying dues or not. Actually, it's more important to make sure all the members get to participate in union elections and contract negotiations. Got carded all of once myself in a half century of trucking, was temping for a couple days for a contractor serving 3M while laid off from another Teamster represented job. Steward asked nicely if I had a card, I showed him my card from a different local and we had a laugh.

About 3or 4 years ago we was haul asphalt toa new bank building here in Town.I was first truck to the lay down machine and the operator told me if some one ask you tell them you work direct for our company.I unload and start around the building to leave and a manwalks out and stops me.He ask what local i belong to.I say something and dont remember what but he said you need to not come back and by that time he was in my face.Some one else came out and said something and he leaves.So that was all that was said and we worked their maybe 3 days but they were all out of town contractors and he is going to thow me out of my town.I carry a can of wasp and hornet spray i have been wanting to try out.And if they like that i have something else i know he will like better.After that that leaves a brown taste in my mouth.I belonged to the teamsters for 6 years when i work at the old dealer and i never seen things like i see now.
