“The Irishman” to screen this fall

“The Irishman” – a movie about Teamster corruption and the murder of Jimmy Hoffa – will open this fall. It’s bound to be noticed, because it stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and is directed by Martin Scorsese.

"I heard you paint houses." Those are the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank Sheeran, who would become a top Teamster official in the 1960s and '70s as well as a hired killer for Hoffa and the mob. The words refer to the splatter of blood when the deed is done.

    We come full circle with this Partisan biased CONSENT ORDER..
    The IBT is back to colluding with a Degenerate GOP.(that is closing in on impeachment again)
    Income inequality is forged into 2 DECADES of CONCESSIONARY Contracts.
    Contracts that are carefully constructed to weaken & destroy the working class .
    Labor agreements with enough toxic ’ multi tier ’ pay levels & lessened benefits to insure this.

    The timing of the movie release could not have been more poorly planned———union participation and public perception of unions are at all time lows.
