MISSOURI: Union Violence Lectures Grab Attention. “Videos showing two University of Missouri instructors advocating for union violence are making the rounds online. . . . The course, Labor in Society & Politics, is offered as part of the labor studies certificate. It’s team-taught by Don Giljum of Operating Engineers 148, and Dave Robertson, a UM-St. Louis instructor. It’s unclear whether those in the class are adult workers or college students. The UM System declined to comment, and Ancel was not available Monday afternoon.” Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Reader Jonathon Burns writes: “Quick correction: The two profs are Don Giljum (UMSL – university of missouri saint louis) and Judy ANCEL (UMKC – university of missouri kansas city). Whoever Dave Robertson is, he must have been a previous instructor. Also, new video here.”
