SEIU Thugs Disrupt Labor Conference

Just another reason why I dislike unions, 2-300 members of the Service Employees International Union cause havoc and injuries as they disrupt a conference.

About 15 conference participants were acting as security at the banquet hall doors. When the chanting protesters entered, waving noisemakers, they and others quickly formed a double line in front of the doors, linking arms to block the way. Some participants were thrown to the ground by larger SEIUers. One protestor broke through the first line and, finding himself trapped between the two lines, flailed wildly. Former Labor Notes office manager Dianne Feeley, a retiree from American Axle, was pushed and fell, cutting her head, and was treated at an emergency room. Protesters continued to try to advance toward the doors, some nonviolently and others more aggressively.

I also detest unions, but in your profession don't you have to be a member of one? I thought I read another post where you said you were, but of course I could be wrong.
