The Las Vegas based Culinary Workers Union, Local 226, has been in a long struggle with the Station Casino chain over unionizing their workers. Station Casinos is owned by brothers Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, who also own the UFC.
In a bizarre attempt at revenge, the union is believed to be supporting efforts to keep MMA out of New York state, the last significant holdout nationwide. In an even weirder undertaking, the union has set up a website accusing UFC President Dana White's liberal use of curse words of being bad for children.
If the union is concerned about the harmful effects of swearing on the republic, it might behoove them to start with Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa who recently called President Republican members of Congress “sons of bitches” and said union workers are ready to “go to war” with the tea party next year and “take out” Republicans at the ballot box. The union leadership might also join a knitting circle.
