FOX41 interviewed Greg Fischer, a candidate for mayor, and asked him about being a union buster:
He says the future of Louisville depends on its main manufacturing companies like Ford and General Electric. While he’s received several labor endorsements from the United Auto Workers and firefighters, some have criticized Fischer for being anti-union.
He responds, “Oh, nothing could be further from the truth. Those are from my competitors that wish they had my support. So I’ve received endorsements from the United Auto Workers, the Plumbers and Pipe Fitters, The electricians, the laborers, SCIU, all but one of the labor endorsements I’ve received. So they are trying to knock my credibility there.”
Greg says he’s not anti-union. But his actions speak louder than words. Like working against collective bargaining agreements. Allowing major union busters to play large roles in his campaign. Letting his sister, Lynn, who plays a major role in his campaign, to work against organized labor re: the downtown arena (I hear the C-J’s got a story coming on that.
Fischer went on to say he wants to steer clear of mudslinging:
While political TV ads have begun to air, Fischer says he hopes the race will avoid any mudslinging.
Guess that means he regrets getting nasty in his race against Bruce Lunsford, which he lost.
