I can't wait for all the mechanic vandalism stories in this thread.

Poor manager probably has not much to do with this. He probably isn't involved in the negotiations, and is only going in because he doesn't have union protection and would lose his job if he didn't.

The Oregonian seems to have become quite invested in carrying water for terminal operators these days. I guess it's a refreshing change of pace from biatching about PERS constantly.

Oh, and whoever is picking their derpy editorial cartoons needs a swift kick in the junk.

Is elk urine something you can just GET, or did the guy have to go out and collect it from a herd of elks?

Hunters use it to disguise their scent. You can buy it.

I've been getting mine the old fashioned way.

Who knew Elks liked microbrews?

I thought they just sat around at the BPOE and drank draft.

Now hold on early judgement. It might be a warranted measure. Is the labor dispute about WHO has to collect the elk urine?

If that elk wanted to trash the manager, why didn't he man up and piss on him?  What kind of candyass uses a middleman?

You know how I know you didn't read the article?  I'm actually suspicious this might be an attempt for management to say the union isn't negotiating in good faith. I could be wrong, but this whole thing smells fishy, or more accurately like elk urine.

You can buy elk urine; it's elk semen that you have to vigorously collect.

Amateur, stuff a banana in the tailpipe, or a few rocks in the hub caps. Get the car open, and jam a catfish under the back seat. If you can get the hood open, switch all the spark plugs around out of order, or , if they have a old car with a carburetor, jam about 5 lbs of sand down it. Great fun when he tries to start it. But the best of all...take off the gas cap, and stuff about 15 cotton balls into the hole. They will semi melt, and travel into the fuel system and gum up the fuel pump, and he will not know what happened, until he spends thousands of dollars on tow trucks and cabs. A nice gallon of diesel fuel works good too. Or, if you are feeling quite bold, you could empty some eggs, and fill them with various substances that don't get along with car paint well. Throw eggs, and in the morning, he gets a big surprise. Hit the house too, if you feel daring enough. Turd in the mailbox, jack rocks in the driveway, just use your imagination.

/not condoning this type of behavior ..i ..umm..heard about such things happening.

Saw a union worker get back at a corporate dick sucking manager once. (and yes, the manager was an asshole). Anyway, it was at a iron foundry, where they made engine blocks. After the pour,and breaking the block out of the sand, the sand would become a fine fine talcum - like texture, very smooth, very tiny. And black, black as a well diggers asshole in a 60 foot well during midnight with no moon, and cloudy. Anyway, the manager had a tool box (one of those giant craftsman wheeled ones with 100 + drawers) and he waited until the manger went home, and rolled this tool box right under the opening in the floor where all that black talcum shiat got dumped. But, he opened all the drawers first. He waited until only the top of the tool chest was showing, and then closed the hopper, and put a little rotating red light on top like a cherry. Needless to say, the manager wasn't happy that someone did this to him, and nobody would fess up. So, he went to call HIS boss...to whine like a little biatch, and found out that someone had put industrial bluing on the ear piece of his phone. So his ear was blue for like 2 weeks. That shiat didnt wanna come off. And..when he tried to clean out his tool chest, he was wondering how to get all that shiat out of all the drawers, and thought...(a air gun...yes!!) Needless to say, once he used it...the piles of black talcum blew back into his face and clothes turning him into a instant tar baby, with a blue ear, much to the delight of his union workers. He left that job soon after..i cant imagine why.

I have been a victim of this from labor before. Funny thing was, there was no particular problem I was aware of besides the regular concerns and grievances. After the third time, I went to the union leaders and just asked them a simple question: "Look, I am not sure who is doing this, it may not be your membership, but it is happening in the parking lot, so I assume it is an employee. If it is one of your fellas, I would love to know exactly what the underlying issue is. Quite frankly, acts like these have no purpose unless the person(s) identify themselves, at least by classification, and stipulate what they are trying to change."

Majorly funny thing is that I was one of the few labor relations fellas that actually tried to help resolve complaints in a relatively stable system. For the record, public employees, no strike rules in place, no lay offs pending, no closures.... not really sure what was up with it.

Response, four weeks later: "not sure, they were just mad at management".

My response, "ok, could they please file a grievance on it instead of messing with my car?"

Why file a grievance when they can act like babies?  They couldn't even explain why they were mad?  What toolbags.

We once loaded a co-workers tool box on a trailer full of barrels of wire  and shiped it to Mexico, boy was the company pissed when they had to ship it back to Ohio
 
2014-03-18 08:26:11 PM  
This is why you only pour in a little bottle, maybe two. That guy looks like he's pouring in a quart of it, which will be noticeable immediately as vandalism. The key is to annoy them in small ways, so the madness builds over time.
 
2014-03-18 08:33:15 PM  
Doing it openly instead of secretly is the proper method of handling a labor dispute.

If your side of the dispute devolves into committing such activities, you've already lost; get over it and move on.
