TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MAYOR "SCAB" JAMES?!?! CRITICS CHARGE MAYOR WORKING WITH NON-UNION CONTRACTORS IN HIS RECENT KANSAS CITY DANGEROUS BUILDING DEMOLITION STUNT!!!
A recent press conference from Mayor Sly James has elicited controversy among Kansas City's union advocates and insiders close to local labor.
To wit . . .
LOCAL LABOR INSIDERS KNOW THAT THERE'S NO WAY UNION CONTRACTORS WOULD LET MAYOR SLY AT THE CONTROLS OF A BULLDOZER AND CHARGE THE MAYOR WITH AN INSULT TO KANSAS CITY'S UNIONS BECAUSE OF HIS RECENT PUBLICITY STUNT!!!
The issue didn't come up at the presser because Kansas City's media and political elite have become disconnected with local labor according to sources close to union interests.
Even better, there's confirmation of Mayor Sly's non-union collabo from a Kansas City political insider:
"There's no way that was a union contractor. Not so long ago there was another local politician who wanted to try the same type of stunt and the Unions absolutely shut them down. NOBODY can get behind Union equipment without the proper qualifications and a Union card."
An even more in-depth analysis . . .
"What this means is Mayor Sly James is so out of touch with local labor and there's nobody connected to labor that is advising him. This move is an insult to City Engineering and other labor interests. If he didn't know better, there should have been somebody working in his office who did."
At the time of this posting there hasn't been a response from the Mayor's office on this controversy. We'll post anything they offer.
In the meantime, certain interests in Kansas City Labor seems especially annoyed that there has been a discounnect between Union interest and The Mayor's office.
