    First of all the costs are different at different places. There hasn't been an election at 542 is over 15 years and I doubt th incompetent Hoffa puppets in office know. The Hoffa puppets will always claim reformers don't know how to read an LM-2.

    Not only is there issues at UPS, it appears like First Transit also have a issues with their representation. And there's a video interview to prove it.


    Should we bring up the horrible Costco contract negotiated by suspended VP - Rome A?

    Actually Dereck doesn't know how to read a LM2. The video he made about our locals financials were wrong in a few ways. This was all read for us in a general membership meeting. His claim that the BAs make too much. Was him adding their salaries and travel expenses together and telling everyone that it was their salary. His claim that the local spent 394k on office furniture and equipment was him adding the amount they spent along with the depreciation of everything the local owns. These are just a few examples.

    Finding one member in El Centro that's upset with his BA hardly proves anything especially as the interview was obviously scripted. but if he is upset he can vote for MFM.

    You're honestly not worth talking to about this. You had a side picked before this thing even started. You would support the reformers even if they were all child molesters. Me I'll go through all the information and facts and make my decision this week.

    It's clear you're an old guard supporter. You probably thought the imposition of the contract and the 22.4s were a good move. You remind me of all the blind Andy M followers.

    I forgot to mention 542 has the lowest paid sanitation members in the nation, even below the substandard contracts negotiated by RH at 396.

    And how about that substandard contract at Costco?

    Why don't you tell us why i is substandard? As compared to what and who? The video you have, is it the people running against the present officers? I mean, video is never wrong if it is on the internet.

    My Dude, this member has worked for First Transit on and off for 6 years? Why so many gaps in employment? Sounds like this member has more issues than the BA can help. Oh and I'm sure VERY SURE the Local has monthly Memberships meetings. Try attending meetings. That way you can see your BA and fellow officers

    $1.31 in pension per hour is a disgrace.

    When more then 8% of the costco member vote they will probably get more.

    ....or maybe they will decertify first?

    Seems like the Teamster SOP is too often to blame the members for lack of participation, rather than looking at the leadership?

    Do you have any idea what Western Fund does compared to other funds? They are 100% from what I hear and have a better return than most others which means that $1.31 there might be the same monthly payment as $5 somewhere else. Do you know what proposals came from the people in the group? If someone says I want to keep r increase my 401k instead of increasing a pension, that is what the negotiator should do. You don't get to decide for other companies.

    Western is 92% funded.

    From what I was told their proposals were more about pay raises then anything. The problem is most Costco employees are in there 20s. None of them care about a pension. Hard to fight for something the members don't want.

    Unless its 22.4s. ;)

    It is the "leaders" job to mobilize, engage, organize. If you can't or won't do that, it's clear who is to blame.

    Yeah. When you look at a unit, if they are young they always want money. Middle aged usually worry about benefits for kids and raises. Older guys want pension and healthcare. Bottom line, the guys get to decide their priority and it isn't right for others to question their decisions. It's their lives.

    Again your information is wrong.

    MFM wanted everyone's address and was told they can not have it. Then they wanted to use a Mailer that wasn't a union shop and couldn't get certified by the IBT.

    But don't worry they got their mailer out.
