BRAVO

 The old saying is that the show must go on. The Teamsters Local 25 got upset that the Bravo channel show Top Chef came to town with non-union employees. The show was to film at Boston’s Steel and Rye. Since the show was using production assistants and drivers who did not have to give their hard earned wages to anyone but themselves and the IRS, the Teamsters picketed and got ugly. Show host Padma Lakshmi and Bravo senior vice president of production Jenn Levy were threatened and called names not suitable for kids to hear or read.

The attack on Top Chef

From this article on Deadline.com, is how the staff of the show described the picketing.

“As any employee of our show walked on or off set, the picketers verbally attacked us, calling the gays ‘fags,’ the blacks ‘niggers’ and most of the women ‘sluts and whores,’ ” the crewmember said. “It got worse as the day went on. They chased us down the sidewalk when we had to run from one end of the location to the next in the middle of our busy work day. They threatened to kill us, beat us, and said that they would find us and force us out of the city. Needless to say, we were terrified. I’m a strong person, but being called names and yelled at and harassed for 12 hours while working, I started to crumble. I was scared and worried for my safety.

“Meanwhile, the executive producers, the representatives from the network, the production management, and the line producers stood by and did nothing,” the crewmember continued. “They never addressed the problem with the staff, or apologized for putting us in such a bad situation. They never called a meeting with us, or sent the employees an email acknowledging what a terrible situation they put us all in.” The local labor board told this member there was nothing they could do.  So for two more weeks, “the picketers continued to subject us to threats of violence, sexual and racist harassment,” the crew member said. “I was scared to go to work. We had to face this nightmare daily until we wrapped the show.”

Unions and politics

It is well known that all unions are part of the Democrat Party. The members of organized labor donate to and vote for the party. All of this started during the progressive era and the rise of the socialist party. As the unions saw no viable political action done by a party that could barely get anyone elected, they turned to the party that was most open to the Marxist ideals. Organized labor believes it is ok to threaten anyone they want, unless they are paid the ransom of dues. Unions have a rich history with organized crime, as well. It would seem that the Teamsters still want to keep to their violent ways.
