I thought this was The Onion at first

To Protest Hiring of Nonunion Help, Union Hires Nonunion Pickets

Some key quotes:

Mr. Raye says he's grateful for the work, even though he's not sure why he's doing it. "I could care less," he says. "I am being paid to march around and sound off."

That actually makes him indistinguishable from an actual union member. Now all he needs are an expansive health plan, immunity from termination and guaranteed wage increases every year.

The union's Mr. Garcia sees no conflict in a union that insists on union labor hiring nonunion people to protest the hiring of nonunion labor.

Of course not.
