We're talking about crane operators (a months training) and forklift drivers (2 days training) for god's sake just replace em. Make sure the replacement (scabs according to unions) are concealed carry licensed and if somebody wants to get jiggy, cap the bstard. so simple a caveman can understand.

Are you ready for a fiscal cliff? The union bosses of an estimated 14,500 workers at 15 ports are preparing to send the economy plunging back into recession over productivity and efficiency rules changes. You read that right. Much more on that in a moment. But first, here's what's at stake.
