53. My two cents...
But first, an answer to your question: Yes, it is. :grr:

If it looks like you will lose the election and lose the union, then it's time for Plan B.

Get a hold of the IWW in Cincinnati and organize your fellow workers anyway.

2,5,10, whatever you can get; it's a start.

IOW, to hell with the NLRB and their stacked deck and their collaborators.

You and your fellow workers stand together as one, regardless of what the "rules" have to say about it.
