You dont understand what's going on? Really? It a picket line, they are trying to make people too uncomfortable to cross it. I'm sure they'd love to negotiate, I'm also pretty sure the hotels won't listen.Are you going to answer the question...what has the drum banging accomplished? Why not go to the table and civilly negotiate. What are the residents at Flats on D going to do about their issue? They have to listen to that 12 hours per day.
Can't confirm whether there were drums involved in their simultaneous Detroit protests, but it was just revealed they were effective:As for "accomplishment" that remains to be seen.

...There's now this:...what has the drum banging accomplished? Why not go to the table and civilly negotiate.
The attitude of your above post is why everyone loves unions..........The flats on d are right across the damn street from the bcec. I wouldn't call that a residential neighborhood I'd call it the city. Obviously you are bothered by the picket lines, I can sympathize with that as I'm sure it's annoying.... but suck it up I dont know what whining on a message board does to relieve that. Misery does love company I guess
I do agree that unions are fucked. They are getting gakked politically, financially and via worker apathy. I disagree that they are unneeded. All the rights, wage and safety protections that were fought for over the years WILL be clawed back as soon as unions are out of the way. It's going to get ugly.
You have no idea how a strike or protest work do you. If you're not loud or not creating a disturbance, how do you get notice? :rollseyes:Again...they could have litigated outside of the public side walks and in a board room. Stop blocking the side walk. I also have heard from a few residents at Flats on D that say they are woken up at 6am by this nonsense. Its a residential neighborhood, why should residents have to listen to this. Sure everyone would love to go complain about their job but not in a residential neighborhood.
