    We just passed by laws changes today by a huge margin. Everything united action talked about in the 2013 local election has been accomplished. When has a politician actually come through on their promises?
    In 251, our leaders have.

    That is what leaders do. They lead. What are the changes?

    Elected shop stewards. Elected negotiating committees. Member vote on officer and agent raises. Setting up a local strike fund. Lower dues for low wage members.

    What kind of formula for the low wage members? That sounds interesting.

    We've been at 3 times the hourly rate since 2002. If you make $11/hr or less, dues are 2.5 times.
    The changes will make it so $15/hr or less pay the 2.5 times.

    That .5 more than the Constitution sets as minimums. I know lots of locals that operate with lower dues structure. And here I thought your new guys were financial wizards.
     
  12. When your support consists of a bunch of retires from the 70's and 80's did anyone with two brain cells expect anything less.

    The changes passed by more than 10-1 vote of active members.
    The delegate election was more than 2-1.
    I would say our leaders have support from members here.
     
  15. Not sure if you are getting it. Look at the Joker who was beaten (old guard) and the person that won(new guard). Math can be simple ;)
     
  16. The members sent a loud and clear message to JB just in case his pea brain can't register it. We are not going back , and pay outrageous salaries for you. MT put a stop on that one. What's even more embarrassing KR could have managed more votes than you. What's that saying.

  19. And when they take care of the Bad bad Leroy Brown song, that fat slimy blonde might realize she hasn't got the potential to be a Wal-Mart greeter.
