Over the years I've been here I've heard many people talk about the attendance of union meetings. Most union meetings seem to happen on a Saturday morning, and for the drivers and preloaders the only issue there is how far away the union hall is. I've gotta ask though, for those that say people should attend meetings, not just the contract meetings which I agree are more important, but the general monthly meetings. How likely would you be to attend a meeting that was at midnight Saturday? Cause that's pretty much how most union meetings are scheduled when you take into account the hours someone who works a midnight shift, pt 22.3 or feeder, would have to deal with. I'm not saying the meetings aren't important, but I'm just a bit tired of the blanket animosity over people who don't attend meetings without the consideration that they work a schedule that is completely discordant with their sleep schedule because of their shift.
