    The IAM 698 vote was even more pathetic
    About 90% yes to 10% no.
    Too many Janitors making $36 an hour and tradesman that have worked at UPS so long they can't think for themselves anymore.

    Did you expect any better? Once you get to this point you have weeded out the posers and followers who were only voting because it was convenient not because they cared about the issues.

    I agree 100% but again a lot of folks just aren't involved and just don't care. Part time employees are simply uninvolved and don't care. Not blaming they completely but let's be honest where the issues lies. I wish they would negotiate their own contract so they can work for pennies and nothing more. It also falls on stewards who are not making sure members are as involved as they should be. My steward is a perfect example of that. I learn more on here than I could ever hope to from him. It's a sad state that we find our union in.
  11. The unoun officials rarely come to the buildings anymore. I bet have of the people don't even know who their BA is.

    And whatever happened to getting sworn into the the union once you made your 30 days?

    Now once you make your 30 days they just start taking out initiation fees.

    I guess they succeeded in drive the vote participation down. Dont know why they bothered. Worst kept secret in the world that it was going to be forced

  17. That's why they made you vote in person. Even if if got voted down they knew they wouldn't have over 50% voter participation
