‘Labor’ group goes after Trump Winery despite no complaints from workers

This is nothing but more Left-wing economic terrorism of industry

(NationalSentinel) It’s going to be this way for the next four-to-eight years of the Trump presidency, so we may as well get used to it: Bogus claims of injustice aimed at harassing, disrupting and maligning the Trump business dynasty while its headmaster is away in the White House.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, this latest effort at harassment comes from a “labor” organization claiming to represent mistreated workers at the Trump Winery, though no actual Trump Winery workers have come forth to lodge any complaints.

The WFB noted:

The Committee to Preserve the Religious Right to Organize, a coalition of California unions and labor activists that sees union activities as a religious freedom issue, filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Dec. 30, news that was first reported by Politico Pro. The coalition alleged that Trump Winery’s rules for workers violates federal labor laws.

The complaint takes aim at four work rules for foreign, temporary workers. These rules require workers to seek permission from supervisors before leaving the field. At company-provided housing, rules prohibit workers from making long-distance phone calls or having guests over past a 10:30 p.m. curfew. These practices can interfere with workers’ ability to strike or contact union organizers, according to coalition attorney David Rosenfeld. The complaint says that such rules “interfere with the religious right of employees to help their sister or brother worker in violation of religious beliefs.”

Rosenfeld said the purpose of the complaint is to address working conditions for employees and raise awareness about Trump’s business practices. Trump’s companies have faced dozens of NLRB complaints over the past three decades.

“I would like to see Trump post notices about his illegal labor practices in the White House,” Rosenfeld said in a telephone interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “Ultimately, he won’t care about these rules unless it [the case] becomes an annoyance to him.”

First of all, this showmanship is nothing but that. There has yet to be any legal ruling that Trump’s winery business actually is breaking labor laws. Secondly, as evidenced by the outsized number of complaints and the fact that these effort involves Left-wing activists, that should tell you all you really need to know about their motivations.

As for that lack of winery workers actually complaining, Rosenfeld had a ready ‘explanation’ for it.

“No workers did reach out because if they did or complained about it they could be subject to a lawsuit. He’s notorious for suing people,” Rosenfeld said. “You can’t stop workers from having conversations about work conditions.”

So it’s okay to libel someone and offer baseless speculation, apparently, if you’re a member of a Left-wing harassment group.

If anything, given his record before spending a single moment as president, Trump has shown an acumen for helping American workers by saving their jobs while convincing American companies to keep them in the United States.

To that point, however, it should be noted that one reason why American companies have favored relocation to Mexico and other places is to avoid the very same economic terrorism groups like the Committee to Preserve the Religious Right to Organize regularly commit.
