I need some help on how to explain this to new employee's that the Union is here to help. I've been the union for about 5 years (ups 1yr and 5mo.) I file greivences for violations that the company does. The new members tell me to stop because they are afraid they will get in trouble also. (juinor members below me) When i see the company doing stuff done to them, I speak up against this, and at which time the co. stops doing it. I tell these new guys that they need to speak up and file if needed. They come back with well... I don't want to be targeted by the company as a trouble maker.. I tell them as long as they do there job they have nothing to worry about, and that it's also against the law to fire or repermand them just for filling, that it's our right at a union member to file. I'm tired of beating my head against the wall with these people. To some i say go work for a non-union company because you are afraid you use your rights that you have.
