FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Company Condemns Teamsters Officials Calling Vietnam Vet “Baby Killer”

CANTON, Mass., June 24, 2005—Northeast Electrical Distributors/Eagle Electric is calling on the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 25 to publicly apologize to Vietnam Veterans employed by the Company for using the term “baby killer” in reference to one of the Company’s supervisors, a decorated Viet Nam veteran.
“For Local 25 union officers to call anyone who has proudly served his country a ‘baby killer’ has brought Local 25 to a new low,” states Lou Brady, Vice President of Operations who himself served during the Viet Nam era.
The Company, an electrical distributor with 17 locations in New England, is engaged in a labor dispute with infamous Teamsters Local 25. Teamsters Local 25 is the same union local that was under federal investigation for several years for shaking down movie producers in the Boston area, as well as allegedly having a woman beaten for refusing to turn her concession stand over to the Teamsters.

Amid union strike threats, Company locked out 30 drivers
On June 1st, after Local 25 officials threatened to call the Company’s 30 unionized drivers out on strike, the company was forced to lock out its drivers to protect its customer service and the livelihoods of the Company’s 345 other employees.
Immediately following the lock out, working employees, customers, and vendors were besieged with threats, physical intimidation, and vulgar name calling by union picketers and officers of the Teamsters Local 25.

Teamsters call Vietnam Vet “Baby Killer”
On Friday, June 3, 2005, Teamster officers and picketers began calling one of the Company’s supervisors “baby killer” from the picket line. Upon begin called this derogatory term, the supervisor (a man who proudly served his country during the Viet Nam War) took an immediate leave of absence. Upon leaving, the supervisor went home, donned his old military uniform, gathered two family members, his American and Marine Corps flags, and returned to confront the union officers and picketers with his patriotism.
“Although we shouldn’t be surprised by anything this local does,” stated Brady, “to denigrate those of us who served our country during the Viet Nam War is unconscionable. Many of us lost good friends and many of us still carry scars—physical and emotional from that war.”

Company asks for help in denouncing Teamsters’ use of the term “Baby Killer”
“We are not asking for anyone to choose sides in this labor dispute,” states Lou Brady. “However, we are asking for our military brethren to either call or write a letter to the Teamsters Local 25 leadership and demand a public apology for disparaging our men and women who proudly served during Viet Nam.”

Please demand a public apology by faxing or writing to:

ATTN: Ritchie Reardon, President
Teamsters Union Local 25
544 Main Street
Boston, MA 02129

Local 25 Fax number: 617-242-4284

Does anyone think Nixon will run for reelection next year?

Have you heard that new song by Don McLean? It's called American Pie. Really long, but a fun song.

Do you think The French Connection will win the best movie Oscar?

Do you think The Brady Bunch will get another season?

Have you seen that new Levis commercial? "Good mornin' world. Good mornin' to you, woo hoo hoo hoo HOO hoo. Well, I'm wearin' my Levis. Lee Hee Hee HeeHeeHee Vies. AWW AWWW Lee Hee Hee HeeHeeHee Vies. AWW AWWW Lee Hee Hee HeeHeeHee hee heehee hee hee hee vies."

Uh... Jimmy Hoffa is still the president of the Teamster's Union. Maybe being "late" just doesn't mean the same thing it used to...

("Jr." I believe ;) )

let us all get really bent out of shape based on a press release by the company's PR organ. Good strategy for removing some of the power/authority of the union power structure.

No link to an actual news source? Seems to me if a company official showed up at the picket lines in his military uniform taunting the picketers the local news sources would have been all over it.
