    Union officials "condone and endorse" attacks on member's internet free speech - By Matt Noyes, Union Democracy Review
    Since the first member forum caught their attention, some union leaders have tried to put a lid on member free speech online. They haven't had much success. Internet free speech has spread like a weed, with independent member-run websites, blogs, and forums popping up in all the unions. Many union leaders probably share the frustration expressed by IBEW International Vice President Phil Flemming, 'while we do not condone or endorse the use of independently operated websites...as places for members to express their opinions, there is little we can do to stop them.'
