Well, it's about time.
Interesting point of view.
About 4th thread today on it
mafia guys muscling in on other mafia crew's turf?
So someone else wants to make money off of fighters, and this is news.
Teamsters? Is this a good thing or?
The fertittas are obviously doing business outside of the regulation of the teamsters, and they are most likely not getting a cut, so it's time to sabotage the ufcs plans.
Expect a few dead fighters to turn up on the fifty foot line of the octagon.
Teamsters and unions are the scum of the world. Workers absolutely deserve fair wages and rights, but these guys take it overboard by a long shot. Whatever good they were initially intended to do has long since disappeared.
Evil vs. Evil. This is the way to go to fight for fighter's rights in the UFC. Say what you want about the culinary union, but they have the financial pockets and political muscle to shake things up. Even if their true goal is to get back at the Fertittas and Station Casino, the process can still generate a lot of positive things for the fighters.
UFC needs more corruption.
All workers deserve a $15 minimum wage, anything else is deplorable and you can't live off it.
*Disclaimer: Any business that joins the union will not have to pay said wage and can keep the wage the same as long as our union gets a cut.
Teamsters? Stay the fuck out of mma. Unionizing is NOT the fucking answer.
The Teamsters will never sign enough UFC fighters to have any leverage. No way.
If a fighter's union emerges, it will be home-grown. Not an offshoot of one of the most corrupt unions in history.
The UFC shills already making this look bad. The lesser of 2 evils imo. Dana is a greedy scumbag that doesn't give a [email protected] about the fighters. The fact that he implemented this stupid reebok deal proves that. Why would you cut off another source of income for fighters when they are already getting paid peanuts???
Fight fire with fire.
True. My dad was a Teamster in Rhode Island during the 70's and 80's. He was making like $60K back then as a glorified janitor with wicked benefits on top of the cash. That was a lot of money for that kind of work. I went to a bunch of Teamster picnics and barbecues. The events were full of uneducated, lazy, entitled slobs and their equally uneducated, lazy, entitled families.
His local Teamster "rep" literally sold jobs to several people I knew including a few of my friends who chose not to go to college.
In the end, the Teamsters pushed for even more from his employers and literally shut down a 100 year old business full of blue collar workers.
Teamsters get things done, yo.
