    Ups drivers make an average of 85 To 90 grands year. Plus about 40 k in benefits. Do me a favor and tell all your customers this. Ask them how they feel about that.

    In any sort of elected position.

    As a new member, may I ask a question?

    How does an elected board (Hoffa Slate) attract new members and/or deter retired, current, and future members from following the new movement?

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    I guess only people that are in leadership positions are allowed to complain about the direction of our union......according to BUG.

    Through ridicule, intimidation, labeling, and by trying to make them feel selfish for wanting to maintain or further their position with their employers.
    By pretending that all that is wrong was unavoidable.
    It's all about disguising the "status quo" as the only option, when change is desperately needed.

    The same thing is going on in governmental politics.
    The masses are waking up though, and the establishment is "circling the wagons".
    Vote them out, get involved and rebuild.
    It's the only viable option.

    There is indeed a movement. There are those with strong locals and memberships. There are some with weak locals and memberships. And then, there are those that fall somewhere in between.

    I'm in between. I'm not sure who to believe. I could show blind allegiance the Hoffa slate or, I could be :censored2: off that IBT, ignored the membership's blatant non-acceptance of our current cba and follow a path to new leadership.


    Maybe, this is a chance to set the record straight. Maybe, someone of your caliber could shed light and lead the uncertain to redemption.

    Maybe, we're just bull:censored2:ting on the BrownCafe.

    It sounds like a small dissident group.

    My local voted to send a small group of dissidents to the convention.


    I imagine, they won't be the only small group of dissidents in attendance.

    What do these brothers and sisters need to hear to rebuke such an uprising?

    I doubt that he's even a real "BigUnionGuy" at all.

    I do respect and consider much of what he says, when he actually says something.
     
  18. Too stupid*:P You always add an extra o when using to describing the quantity of something.

    You were describing the quantity of his stupid.

    I too, respect what he says. Which is why I posed the question.

    How do we convince the membership that, isn't persuaded with a handsome hourly wage that, Hoffa/hall leads us into the future?

    If I say "Hoffa" does the forum automatically censor me and replace "Hoffa" with the letter "h?
