Markwayne Mullen Sounds Pretty Anti-Union to Me
Updated On: Mar 09, 2023
Mar. 9, 2023 | COMMENTARY | For someone who claims not to be anti-union, Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) certainly seems to have it out for the president of the Teamsters. On Wednesday, at a Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing, Mullin prefaced a diatribe by averring: “I want to make it very clear, I’m not against unions. I’m not at all. Some of my very good friends work for unions. They work hard and do a good job.” But it didn’t take long for Mullin, who owns a plumbing company, to begin complaining about how union organizers (presumably none of his “very good friends”) had harmed him, personally.“Back in 2009, you guys tried to unionize me,” he said, addressing Teamsters president Sean O’Brien.
