Google Backed Net Coalition’s Anti-Union Dirty Tricks Campaign

Google’s Attack on Unions Means the United Message is Working

This flyer was circulated by the Net Coalition lobby shop in Washington recently.  As you will see it clearly refers to a “host of union thugs” who had the temerity to oppose Net Coalition backer Google and other giant consumer electronics companies.  Who is in the “host of union thugs”?  The American Federation of Musicians, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the Directors Guild of America, the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees and the Screen Actors Guild.  (Net Coalition is the astroturf lobby group managed by well-known Washington lobbyist  Markham Erickson. Net Coalition includes Google and Wikipedia, and a big sponsor of Politico, home to many Google apologists.  To be complete, when they were caught with this flyer, Net Coalition blamed someone who worked for them instead of manning up.)
