Nearly two-dozen members of the Culinary Union were arrested Thursday night, for blocking an entrance to the Palace Station .  The “Review-Journal” says hundreds of union workers protested outside the hotel and casino on West Sahara Avenue, demanding that Station Casinos allow unions at Palace Station and its other properties.  Metro Police Captain Larry Burns says most of the protesters complied with orders to clear the street, but 22 of them blocked the Palace Station entrance, and were arrested on a misdemeanor count of failure to clear the streets.  The Culinary is hoping to unionize Station Casinos’ 13-thousand employees at its 18 Southern Nevada properties.  Station spokeswoman Lori Nelson says the company recognizes the right of workers to be represented by the Culinary “if they so choose.”  The National Labor Relations Board will resume a hearing February 28th on allegations Station Casinos used threats and other illegal activities against workers engaged in union activities.

    Ifss Union Leaders kept illegals out instead of knowingly allowing almost fifty percent of their membership to be illegal thereby encouraging people to invade our Nation and steal jobs from citizens then I would be happier than I am because as a Union member of a different Union we have the same problem in our Union. The disrespect of Morals and Virtue and the rule of law began with the Serpent and Eve and will continue until only G-d knows by people that have no fear of the Creator of the Universe and choose to encourage everyone to join in and ignor virtue and embrase immorality as they have. They lie and say that same sex unions and marriage is only Love and that God is Love and so do not judge them. God has already judged their acts as not acceptable and I have accepted his judgement and will not turn against him to side with the other side.
    Thank you,
    Ronald Frank
