Skip to comments.Tierney and the Teamsters? God Help Us

Websters defines greed as a selfish and excessive desire for more of something than is needed.
But there should be another entry: Teamsters Local 628.
You see, these are the guys who destroyed months of work by those trying to resurrect the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News papers. The Teamsters were the ONLY union out of 16 who chose not to negotiate in good faith (READ: common sense) with the papers prospective new owners.
In doing so, they have jeopardized thousands of jobs.
The deal is off, and the papers are going back on the auction block.
Worse still, former publisher Brian Tierney, whom the Teamsters unabashedly supported, is not out of the newspaper business yet.
In fact, Tierney allies Raymond Perelman, a billionaire who bid with the Tierney group during the last auction, and the Carpenters Union , who lost every penny of its original pension fund investment but mysteriously keeps throwing more money on the table --- have once again submitted a bid.
God help us.

Unions and DemWits are IMHO the WORST kind of greedy... not only do they ALWAYS, ALWAYS want more... They want you to have LESS!
See Chris’s write-up - most of the Inky ‘news’ is recast of Appalling Propaganda (AP) so who needs it?
(Debt Holders Group have bid $105 million; Perelman group has bid $85 million.)
