I do not know where we would be without OUR Union!
Topic: New Union Business
I work in 802 for about 6 months now.
At best I would say your leadership ability is in question and at worst most people I talked to seem to think you are a "NUT" with a personal agenda.
I look at your website and the words from a country song come to mind "Let's talk about me." You offer no direction or plan, just "I hate our current Union if you hate them to, let's talk."
As far as our union goes I worked in non-union warehouse before and this is far better. I have seen a couple different Union People, they always ask me how I am doing. I am planing on attending some Union rallies and events (like Kings Island for $20.00, what a deal!). Do you attend rallies and get involved?
Many thanks for the original posting. All personal attacks will be deleted from this web page. Idea's will be allowed to stand "as is".
Here's the plan; join REAL Union and you'll be offered the choice to vote for one of three options; 1) Bring in Real Union as the new Bargaining Unit Representation, 2)Keep UFCW-1099, or 3) Opt for No Union Representation at all.
If you don't join you'll be supporting UFCW-1099 by default and they'll ride you (us) all the way to the bank every payday from now on and you'll never get the chance to vote on the three options listed above. Clear on that?
I couldn't care less what you think of me personally or my leadership abilities. As far as I'm concerned, I am spearheading an effort that may put you in as the new Union President chief!
I do not get involved in anything affiliated with UFCW-1099. Mr. Bill O'Reilly has had a hand in that. You see I read his latest book "Who's Looking Out For You?". In this book his advice is to end your affiliation with people or groups who clearly do not have your best interests at heart. For me, UFCW-1099 fits in that category. I also happen to think that this is true for anyone with a brain. Besides that, I do not have the political disposition to get "appointed" as steward for this bunch of left leaning socialists.
So let's re-cap shall we?
You've worked here for 6 months so you didn't vote 1099 into existence now did you(I suspect that you are one of the guys sucking up my Union Dues from Monroe, Ohio)? Neither did I so why are we paying for the priviledge of supporting their (your?)attempt to organize Wal-Mart, an historically un-orgaizable retailer? And how much longer would you like to continue paying, for this cause, with absolutely no positive results in sight after five failed years of trying? When someone shows they are not about your best interests who is the shame on when you keep going to them and asking them to be fair with you this time (fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on ME)?
And what exactly do you have against hard working women anyway? They have every right to be employed just the same as you do. You might try sending me an e-mail with a name I recognize in the subject line if you aren't too chicken to hide behind your alias. But then, you are the super-Boob-joke now aren't you sonny boy.
ps: Wal-Mart Distribution Center in Washington Court House starts people out at $12.15 an hour. You are being paid $8.10. You realy like this union job huh? It's much better than a non-union job right?
psps: Target D.C. is starting folks out at $12.75 hourly (West Jefferson?)
