    I have been getting numerous reports from co-workers about the IBT conducting a cell phone text blitz, encouraging us to vote in tomorrow's mid-term elections.

    I wonder how many of tomorrow's races will be subject to an unadvertised two-thirds/50% rule....or even an "executive order" trapdoor clause.

    Seriously, why would the IBT think that any UPSer gives two shakes about how they want us to vote....after they once again took a giant crap on our own democratic process???

    I have been getting bombarded by republican text messages on my cell phone. I have no idea how they got my number but receive half a dozen a day. I text back to "Impeach now and make America safe again". They still send me more messages.

    I got a text early evening (calling me a name I dont know) and telling me my voting record is public info, noting that "I" voted in the last 4 general elections so make sure that I vote.

    2/3 has been the rule since the 91 convention. Have you been under a rock? lol

    "The 2/3 Rule" actually long predates the 1991 National Convention, where do get your information?

    Prior to the 1991 Convention, when the rule was watered down with the 50% provision, it didn't matter if every single member voted, two thirds was required to reject a final offer.

    Do you find it odd that it apparently wasn't "a rule" in 2013, when 18 supplements failed, many with less than 50% voting???
    Nope, since 1991 when I was a 5 year part time hub employee, I have matriculated to a package car driver position in 1994 where I still reside on an 18 year bid route.

    In January of 2005 I was elected as Steward of a large hub with 3 package car centers and presently represent approximately 230 drivers.

    So no, I have hardly been "under a rock" and feel 100% validated in my feelings and opinions....but thanks for asking.:wink2:

    I asked the guy who messaged me if we were going to remove Hoffa from office since he didn’t meet the 50% participation threshold. He never got back to me.

    Maybe he didn’t respond because you mispelled his name.

    Looks like a screen shot that was sent to @Bubblehead from one of the numerous co-workers who reported the texts.

    I was in St Louis last weekend, but from the looks of the pictures, it was like Philadelphia West.

    Those people seem very desperate for a leader since Jumbo hasn't been in the picture.
