Video: Union Intimidation in Action 

As the National Institute for Labor Relations Research documents, every year there are hundreds of incidents of union violence, and countless more go unreported. However, since only a tiny percentage of them end up in arrests or convictions, people often have trouble grasping the scope of the problem.

This video (about a campaign of union violence and intimidation surrounding a strike in Westminster, VA) demonstrates how emotionally damaging such intimidation is to rank-and-file workers who refuse to toe the union line. The retaliation in this case took the form of Godfather-esque bullying. If only union violence was Hollywood fiction.
