A few malicious union members at The Blade

Apparently, things are heating up in The Blade's newsroom as the union feels the pressure.

On Friday, August 25th Blade worker Paul Hem, a systems analyst, posted a notice informing other employees in the newsroom and prepress area that Blade employees had a choice whether or not to be unionized. Minutes later, his notices were ripped down by a union member. Mr. Hem claims that while he did not personally observe the activity, people who requested anonymity informed him of the details of the offense. Mr. Hem also claims that he knows who the person(s) was(were), but hopes that they will "come to their senses" and allow employees a choice as to whether or not they wish to be represented by a union.

Let's see what heppens next.
