Good Lord.

I don't know that Jesus would have been a union organizer, but I'm pretty sure how he would exhort his flock to treat workers. This ain't it.

The short version is that a black megachurch in Inglewood, CA owns the LA Forum which is (or had been staffed) by union stagehands and electricians. The managing company has moved to lockout workers, give them a shitty contract, the usual. The union agreed not to picket the church on Easter in return for some leverage on the managing company. The union honored its end of the deal but the church did not.

Nice. Stay classy.
