Typical union trade

Frit notes that German trade union bounder Bsirske, boss of the Verdi trade union, has flown with his wife on holiday to Los Angeles, first class, for free, on a Lufthansa airliner whilst in the process of organising a strike at Lufthansa. Exposed, he has now considerately agreed to repay the money to the company (some 20,000 Euros) and is not going to resign any offices. The mainstream media appears to find this more a question of “poor judgement”, “lack of foresight” etc., and never a matter of criminal deceit. Nor does it find anything contradictory in a trade union man having 20,000 Euros in small change lying around to pay back just like that.
