The theater is especially interesting (i.e. like watching a train wreck - you know it is going to be bad, but cannot turn away) in light of a lull in contest action for me, but the tellers union at the Meadowlands continues to give the organized labor movement a black eye, in light of reported shenanigan's of leaders of Local 137 of the Laborers International Union of North America, as reported by Record writer John Brennan.
THE only person interested in saving racing at the Meadowlands. It is obvious that, outside of the blatant attempt to sabotage any hopes of salvaging a racing business at the Meadowlands, that either these individuals could care less about working again, or have such utter disrespect for the sole lifeline to a dying New Jersey-based harness racing program, but to the patrons of the sport who have subsidized their jobs for decades. These parties are deserving of much better treatment.
Check out this quote from Mr. Gural: "I'm busting my ass to try to save the track, and they don't even have the decency to show up for a meeting that they themselves scheduled. You have a small group of hard-line idiots here. It's ridiculous. The rank-and-file have to understand that a small group of people want to sabotage the deal."
Welcome to Governor Christie's nightmare and doing business in the State of New Jersey!
