    [​IMG]By Michael A. Savwoir, UPS Feeder Driver, Local 41, Kansas City

    If it is so boring why are you bothering to respond? The nicest thing I can say is If your bored your probably boring. Whats more important than educating yourself? Its the first step that is needed to better your condition. But lets cut to the chase. People who don't do jack, whether they are company sucks or do nothing bureaucrats try to nock down somebody who is actually trying to do something. Not to mention straw bosses who are undercover as members. If you have any constructive criticism feel free to offer it. If you dont take a long walk....TDU is the real deal. Study what we won. The right to vote got us Ron Carey & the 97 victory. I give props to 804 then & now!
