    Preloading 4+ years now. Seeing things steadily going downhill. Harrassment, favoritism, nepotism, drivers working off the clock helping everyone load. Everyone's afraid to file grievances. Admittedly, I wouldn't file a grievance on my grandfather either but damn. I ain't got nothin' to lose. This ain't my main gig anyway. Do I need to be the one who steps up and snatches a steward up by the scruff of his neck and demand a pile of grievance forms? First one being filed against him for not spreading the word in a Right-To-Work state. These kids out here ain't payin' diddly in dues because they don't know what a union is, much less what one does. They're "the guys who have to save our jobs when we come back from benders", according to proven legend. What needs to happen here, folks? Do I need to become a steward? Wouldn't bug me a bit...spending an extra hour or so on paperwork to stick it to these fools.

    Maybe they know you won’t file a grievance. If they say good morning to me I file one

    You definitely shouldn't if you feel it necessary to come onto BC and ask idiots like me questions that have obvious answers.

    Yes , you do need to become a steward . However you also need to know the language of the contract , and past practices. If these young folks will truly listen to your voice , by all means preach to them . Go see your business agent at your local union hall and start the process of becoming a steward .

    Become a steward then you can sign your own grievances.

    A Wallation:

    Please understand, my posting is indeed serious in nature, and by no means is it an attempt at jocular pursuits.

    My goal is to get my Union brothers and sisters on the same page in terms of our struggle with mangement. Continued subservient behavior towards management is not a long term answer.

    Please reflect on the above issues.

    Thank you.

    LMGMFAO!!! If you say so. But it's like I told my triflin' Uncle Tom :censored2: supe Friday, "Don't push me, 'cause I'm close to the edge. I'm tryin' not to lose my head".

    It's like a jungle sometimes. Makes me how I keep from goin' under.

    I'm just "fine and dandy , than you."

    anyway , it took me awhile to learn that if you stick up for yourself , act professional and do your best , for the most part they ( stupes ) will leave you alone.

    good luck
