You weren't listening, Local. This is a misrepresentation of what Skillman said. Please use some thought when attempting to discredit Skillman and Eason. What he said was, the membership fee, if your membership application is submitted prior to certification
of APWA as the collective bargaining agent, is $150
. This is a one time fee. Should your membership application be submitted AFTER
the vote, then the fee will be $250
. Also a one time fee. This initiation fee amount is similar to what Teamster locals currently charge
. Obviously this is to encourage membership applications and financial support during the campaign.
I'm not an officer; so this is not my decision to make. I suggest that you contact the officers and make this request. Seems like a reasonable request to me.
And your'e comment about being a gentlemen in a debate with Teamsters.....obviously you haven't watched the Leedham/Keegel debate. It was a pure smeer session seeing who could tear down the character of the other candidate. There were several times where I thought Keegel needed to pop a couple nitro pills to calm himself down.
