As is the case when I’m up to my eyeballs in working on a specific issue or issues, I sometimes miss some great stories.

As an Eagle Scout, I have a soft spot in my heart for young men who go through the difficult process of earning their Eagle, the culmination of which is managing an “Eagle project” that is volunteer in nature and has a minimum requirement of 200 man hours to qualify.

A 17 year-old Scout in Allentown, PA arranged a project to clean up a local hiking trail. As a thank you, the local union thugs of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) threatened to sue because the work done on the trail was done by volunteers – not paid union members.

After major outrage in the community, SEIU quickly distanced itself from the union member (there is still a question as to what position he holds in the local union – having been first reported to be the President of the local) and run quickly out of the fire zone.

Michelle Malkin had great coverage of the issue here.

There is no low to which some unions will stoop to try to push their agenda and flex their muscle. Shame on them.

    The unions never cease to amaze me. Can’t wait until card check is back as a hot topic (rolling eyes and shuddering).

    No wonder I keep wanting to pronounce SEIU as “Sue”.
