    I received yet another Teamster approved mailing from a business looking to solicit business simply because I am a member of the Teamsters union. I did not join the union nor do I like to receive these kinds of mailings. I take all of the contents of the mailing, including the envelope that they were sent in, tuck them neatly back in to the postage paid return envelope and send them back to the company.

    What are your opinions on receiving Teamster approved mailings?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Shred it as soon as I get it takes 5 seconds. Small price I pay for my wage and benefits.

    You should quit your job so you don't have to deal with the mailings.

    I would rather quit Brown Cafe so as not to deal with morons such as yourself.

    Actually the mailings are another way the union is selling us out...... selling our names and addresses with out our consent.

    That's the point that I was trying to make. Our local does this and I always give our BA a hard time about it whenever I see him. It is my right as a consumer to pick and choose whom I wish to do business with. I don't recall anything in the union membership paperwork about forced solicitation.

    Move to a right to work state. Get out of the union. I don't want to work with someone who isn't proud to be a Teamster.

    GET OUT!!!!:angry:

    It doesn't count unless you post a poll first.

    Yawn.

    Is yawning like some kind of nervous self defense for you?:sad-little:

    Yawning is my response when I am bored with either the post or the poster. In your case it was both.

    Some pee themselves. Some ejaculate. Some yawn.

    BC affects different people in different ways.
