The labor agent that has been visiting our center and pushing hard for the yes vote....had a conversation with me.
I asked him "what are your qualifications to negotiate a multi-billion dollar contract with professional business people?"
His answer...…"I was driver....I was a union steward"

WOW.

My thoughts...."you sure have a high opinion of yourself"

Many, many people are part of the negotiations including lawyers. You want local officials in the negotiations because they are closer to us and know the issues better. I'm not saying they are all qualified but trust me your BA is not personally negotiating this contract.

The BA would have served the OP better by taking two minutes to explain the process.

IOW they admit to failing at life and falling back on working for the union. I don't think that is a high opinion. :D

"I was elected into office.... And you weren't."
Lol. Thank you for explaining the qualifications someone has to negotiating cbas.
It's always touted and asked here:

"So what makes you qualified to negotiate a contract?".

Now we have it. That explains a lot.

"Professional Business People" is absurd.

The company negotiators are UPS labor managers. The same ones that used to be

hub supervisors, center mangers, feeder managers, etc.... that were just promoted

to work in the labor dept. All their names are listed in the back of the contract.

The negotiating team did very little. Some of them were kicked out when they tried to inform the members of major changes in wages and working conditions.

It was Taylor and UPS. The concession stand was open and Taylor used our money to pay for concessions. Taylor has us a voting for a paycut.

Many are less than professional.
Pompous liars at times and over bearing.
They're not there to bring justice but to protect the (glass) shield.

So how is being a driver and a steward "failing at life". Or are you saying getting elected (by ones peers) to represent others interests is "failing"?

But then again pardon me for questioning your experience with failure, it seems a subject you've mastered.

There is nothing "cool" about living either one.
