    Is a scab just a name for a non union employee OR an employee of either form (non union or union and/or non union that crosses a picket line) ?

    I know the answer , but for shyts and giggles , some of my coworkers don't . Just seeking unbiased clarification from outside source's .


    And judging by some of the headers I see posted , alot of folks need educating on everything from :What is a Union to Cardinal sins . Reading some of the headers are just entertaining to say the least .

    I guess it's open to interpretation.

    "YES I AM"

    It just amazes me that no matter what , a scab is a scab .
    My definition is , and with a hint of sarcastic humor . In my book if I am paying dues and your not for longer than the 30 days it took you to gain seniority : YOUR A SCAB .

    I always thought the union should have there own pre-pcm's-PCM at least once a week. Have the steward or someone good with public speaking deliver it.

    Our shop steward shows up 1 minute before start unless he is asked to come in earlier to discuss grievances or for training. He could come in a bit earlier and have an informal meeting to address any concerns or relay any information from the BA. I like this idea.

    Ours works everyday. I never nor would I ever question his work ethic. All I said was he could in a little earlier to be available to address any concerns we have and pass along info from the local.

    I'm not a Stewart, but people know I know the contract and go to meetings, so I make myself available to anyone and speak with the Stewart frequently.

    Been mentioned in circles. I'm a short timer. I worry about being able to walk , when I finally walk out the door. Complainers don't lead. Just blame others.

    So you like to talk the talk but are worried you may be unable to walk the walk.
