Why do you keep changing screen names ?
You are like on number 4 or 5.
The General President has the right to interpret the constitution.
He does so with the advice of the GEB and the IBT attorneys.
Only 22% of the UPS members voted in the strike authorization vote.
They sealed their own fate.... and proved they weren't willing to walk.
No- just slobs.
I get it....you hate UPSers but love their money.
Union dues (not just UPS) pays the bills.
Fact of life.
What do you think gives the Union the ability to negotiate your wages and benefits ?
Yeah- no kidding Sherlock. Point is- you continually run down UPSers but I'm sure have no problem taking their money. (If you even are an "elected official). Lol.
Would it be legal to force a member to participate in the strike vote in order to receive a ratification ballot?
It sucks to have members cast a majority vote only to be disregarded.
That's the problem. The majority didn't vote.
The strike vote was a "feeler gauge" in ascertaining the support of a strike.
It wasn't there. Even in "97" when member support was high, people still crossed.
Do you think, the drivers that park their $70k truck and $50k bass boat at work
are voting no.... Or, are voting voting at all ?
Any "ride" by a supervisor, is an "exploratory" mission.
People run their mouth.
They know who they are dealing with....
'What was the percentage that voted for authorization?
Exactly what happened here. We met the parameters set and still had it forced on us.
I see the problem as the majority who did vote had their votes disregarded.
From what you've written in this post it's obvious the union thinks it will never strike again, and if we do, so many will cross that the strike will be over quickly. Add the negotiating skills of someone like D Taylor and we are absolutely hosed.
I think the votes cast should count. Let the dips who aren't involved be forced to suck it up or cross the picket line. If they cross I hope the members never forget and make their jobs so miserable they end up quitting. One contract being forced on non-voters would solve low turnout for a very long time, IMO.
If you want to believe.... that UPS people are badass.... have at it.
Well, we can at least say that without doubt, Hoffa and his cronies aren't "badass".
Answer the questions.
Walk for what reason? We walked for Carey because he wasnt a company man. You figure it out.
they can badass a buffet
Out of 185,000 members what percentage crossed the line?.
It was minuscule at best.
Because UPS owns him now.
They kicked Sean O'Brien off the negotiating team because he was talking "strike and how to prepare for it". @BigUnionGuy knows this and yet goads us for not passing a strike vote.
Cant have it both ways bud. You look femininanious.
