I Fucking Hate Unions!

As we all know, the postal workers are currently on strike for 48 hours, just as they were last week.

I REALLY hate unions. Firstly, they are all run by idiots with overly loud shouty working class voices which makes me think of all that 'power to the people' shit from the 70's. The only thing any of them say when I hear them on Radio 4 is what a bad lot they have and how the management of which ever company they 'work' for are screwing them over. You will never hear anything constructive said. They never have any real arguments.

I don't know about you but if I am not happy in my job I look for another. I don't decide to stop work until I get more pay/longer tea breaks/more overtime. If I did I would be sacked! Are all these postal workers so thick that they need their idiot union bosses to speak for them? Can they not look for a job? They can't all be that pathetic!

Do the postal workers think they are fighting for a worthy cause? The Royal Mail (which I agree is total shit these days) is trying to modernise as they are losing 10% of their business every year. Since the postal strikes started the list of companies changing delivery company is huge, including M & S, Argos, Play.com, Amazon, John Lewis.....I could go on. These companies are NEVER coming back. That is lost business forever. These union retards are killing the company they work for.

Unions were once a good thing. When people were sent down unsafe mines or under looms to clear out stray cotton they had a purpose. Stop people dying or we won't work. Now, in 2009 they do not. They are redundant. I think the union leaders call strikes just to make sure they keep their jobs!

Talking about union leaders, how much do we think the leader of the CWU is on? While the postal workers are losing money while they strike this wanker is on £97,000!! They all pay their union dues to keep this prick in luxury? Maybe they are all a bit thick after all.

Unlike Maggie Thatcher with the Miners strike, Gordon Brown has already given in once to these twats and I am sure he will do it again, ruining the postal service even more than it already is and leaving an even bigger mess when he gets booted out of office next year. I personally think we should lynch the twat.

Anyway, rant over. Just don't ever ask me to join a union as a kick in the balls really hurts.

To be fair, not all posties are on strike. Ours was delivering last week and when Victoria said 'I thought you were on strike' he replied with 'I want to work, it's nearly Christmas'. Good lad!!!

You and I have never seen eye to eye when it comes to politics. If we all thought the same it would be a dull world.
It's interesting though most people see either the unions as being to blame, or the Royal Mail as being to blame. Nobody ever stops to consider that maybe they're both to blame for the current situation.
All I know is this - I want a Royal Mail run as a public service, and for it to be a strong healthy company that respects both its work force and its customers.
This is what's under threat, and this is what the union are fighting for. Jobs and Services. Our services.

I agree that it is more fun with everyone having different opinions. :-)

I also agree that it is both the Royal Mail's fault as well as the unions.

I also want the Royal Mail to be a public service but let's face it, the service has been going downhill for some time and as we all know they are losing 10% of their business a year. Their modernisation ideas seem to be scuppered by union action so they don't really have a change to try their ideas out.

Maybe a private company would do a better job. My god I can't believe I am saying that as we all know that when something goes private it turns even shitter but something needs to be done and a private company would have no union issues.

What I really mean is something needs to be done and strikes are not helping anyone, especially the future of the royal mail.
