A song Arnold Ordman used to recall. he was very much in favor
of collective bargaining, and generalkly very much a fan of
David Dubinsky and Norman Thomas among others. So I never
quite understood some of the words of this song condemning
"company unions".

                 The Cloak Maker's Union

The Cloak Maker's Union
Is a no good union
It's a company union
By the bosses.

Cause the no good cloakmakers
And the Socialist fakers
Are making by the workers
Double Crosses.

The Hillquits, the Dubinsky's,
And the Thomases,
Is preaching by the workers
False promises.

Cause they preach socialism
But they practice fascism
To preserve capitalism
By the bosses.
