street and included a provision that management could search any vehicle on their property. They found the gun in the trunk and presto this guy was gone after 22 years.

They did. They filed a grievance and took it all the way to arbitration where they lost. Which isn't surprising since the latest stats I saw showed the companies win 85 per cent of arbitration cases.

Yep. When I was in high school in the '70's, nearly every pickup had a Winchester or Marlin in the back window. These were students trucks, the teachers had them also. It wasn't unusual for folks to compare their various rifles either (teachers and students). THAT was normal.

No that's not what I am saying. When I say good union man I mean abiding by the contract.

Roy, when you say "good union man", you are saying "anti-anything management". If he was a good employee, he would not have been in the sights of the management team. i have the job I have now because I got screwed by being a union employee, and am now a proud non-union, open-shop, loyal employee making more take-home pay than if I was still a union stooge. Good employee, and good union man never belong in the same sentence. They mix like oil and water.

When he returned with his weapon, he was able to scare the robber away, thereby saving his manager’s life and the company $2,000. How was McClean rewarded for carrying out such a heroic act? Because he violated company policy by bringing a personal weapon into the store-- he was fired. The Blaze has more:
