Union Thuggery Letters: Support Us Or Suffer The Consequences

Not bad enough that Union thugs and their supporters would threaten anybody that supports Governor Walker and the Wisconsin GOP's budget repair bill, but now they are even threatening people that take no stand, that do not publicly support either side.

~~~~With that we'd ask that you reconsider taking a sign and stance to support public employees in this community. Failure to do so will leave us no choice but do [sic] a public boycott of your business. And sorry, neutral means 'no' to those who work for the largest employer in the area and are union members." ----- Portion of letter sent to business owners from Union thugs.

Wisconsin business owners are fighting back against Union thuggery and letters being sent out by unions which threaten to target business owners with boycotts if they do not publicly join the the battle between unions and state government over the budget repair bill that the state has passed that would limit collective bargaining by unions for public employees.

You can read the letter in whole that is shown in the video below, here-PDF)

This is not the first threat the Unions have made against Wisconsin business as letters sent previously to business owners have been reported on as well.

PDF of a letter sent out on March 10, 2011 found here.

The ending is a clear threat to those business owners that received the letter:

The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor Walker’s efforts to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public employees in Wisconsin. While we appreciate that you may need some time to consider this request, we ask for your response by March 17. In the event that you do not respond to this request by that date, we will assume that you stand with Governor Walker and against the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, and other dedicated public employees who serve our communities.

In the event that you cannot support this effort to save collective bargaining, please be advised that the undersigned will publicly and formally boycott the goods and services provided by your company. However, if you join us, we will do everything in our power to publicly celebrate your partnership in the fight to preserve the right of public employees to be heard at the bargaining table.

Dawn Bobo, pictured at the top of this post, is one of those business owners that are fighting back and she tells Fox News that people are coming from miles away to show support to her plight and that she has done a weeks worth of business in just one day. (H/T Jim Hoft)
