    The old slate @ 804 are the ones responsible for the missing monies and mismanagement. They took out language that helps the members and added language that hurts the members. Give the new slate a chance. They have a few things up their sleeves cooking. I see them every week at 43rd st building. I voted for them, but lately I've been having mixed feeling , so i just hope whats going on at 43rd st gets taken care of soon, because they are starting to look weak to the members here. I still support them, but bosses like falco are disrespecting them and testing them. They will have to start doing something soon. I still have faith that they will do what has to be done....

    SUP WORKING UPDATE

    BA "Sammy the Bull Sh**" was approached by drivers last week asking him to stop the sup's from working up on the belt. So Sammy the BS goes up on the belt gives the Sup. a big hug and askes him to please stop working. NO THIS IS NOT A JOKE. Is this what they meant by building raids. Hahahaha

    We cannot stop sups from working, we can file on them doing it but do not think that anyone of us has the right to force them to stop. You never did answer any of my questions? Pretty soon I will have to call you dodge boy.

    Thank God the word is starting to go around about this bunch. All I hear in my building is, what a mistake we made, 3 years of this bs. I tell them brothers sometimes you get what you ask for AND THEN SOME. This new e-board is a joke. The company is pissing on them in every building. 804 say anything you want you know it's true. It's easy to throw stones when your on the other side of the fence. And the **** they just pulled with the health fund the old board would never f--k the member or the retiree on a fixed income like this bunch just did. I don't want to hear the crap about what happened to the money IT WAS SPENT ON OUR FAMILY'S HEALTH CARE. As we all know unless you have your head up your ass like the new e-board the cost of health care is rising over 10% every year in ny thats what happened to the money. I'm telling you now the membership knows they made a mistake and it has only been 5 months. And RED with all do respect mind your business worry about your own local .You think you know some of them because you had a beer with them THINK AGAIN if they were running your local you would run them out of town. And agitator 2 thanks for starting to get the word out.

    Outlaw,
    I have posted actual reports submitted to the dept of labor showing you what happened to the health care fund in the past 5 years during the Howie era. It really dont take a rocket scientist to see there was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode and that time was right now. Howie had the health care in arbitration when the new board took over and that isnt a good thing for the members if he/she had to make a decision. 25 and out would have been the first thing we would have lost and I could bet out next raise would have been in that package .Do I agree with everything the new board does, Hell No! and if they cant get the job done within the next few years I will be the first one rooting to get them out. You have to give them some time and support. The company is a cut throat operation and having the new board fight with them and the opposition is way too much to handle. Like I said to the other poster, blame legit crap on them not something they had no control over.

    Not too sure if this would be any different then the old VP Billy and DM Jim hunting/ fishing now would it? Ask Billy in the feeder dept if its true and you will get the same answer "What I do on my personal time is my business"
    He is correct, it is his business but it is also a conflict of interest.
    Just out of curiosity, did Mr supervisor stop working? Did you file a grievance and get paid for his hard work? Put it on paper and hand it to your friend Sammy instead of having him do our work.

    In all due respect Mr Outlaw, your post is not entirely true. Some of the contributations was put into the pension fund to save that from going under. Did you see when I posted that info for you? I know your going to say 15 years ago Ron Carey did it also but the only difference is we had a BOATLOAD of money in both funds. It was a move to get us to 25 and out and was a good one.

    But they did have control, they took from us what the company has been trying to get for the last 4 years, if they don't take on the company on every issue we my brother are in trouble. I must admit they talked a good game on how they were going to take on the company but they have no clue. Now I hear they are changing lawyers to some TDU guy OMG we are in trouble.
    Don't Believe the bs about the 25 and out the company played poker with them and they ( the new board) lost their shirts. If you can please repost the dol stuff.

    No we already had the 25 and out. By doing what he did he front loaded the contributions to the pension fund to raise the amount of our pension, without putting money into the health fund
    If we had a boatload of money WHY did RC take money from our annuity contribution and put it into out health fund during the same time period.

    Don't lose faith upsman. I hear that you have Steve ** and Dave *******l. I heard that when they first meet the dm *****.. He told Steve and ******* that when the company and union have problems.. It is like a sandwich and the meat in the middle is the membership and they will get eaten.. Meaning that he will start firing people.. So ******* told him that since he is a big guy he likes to eat... but when he eats his sandwich he likes a whole lot of mustard on it.... and to him mustard is MANAGEMENT>>>>LOL.. ***** flipped out and damn near had a break down.. LOL.. Also as I hear it the shop stewards are loyal to the old slate and they are going around up underminding the new board.. Which is ****ed up... Why you ask.. 4 guys from the old board came back to their old ups jobs in hopes to run against them in 3 years... And these guy of old promised a lot of people jobs and so on.. So stay strong and rally the membership not the stewards.. Most of them are of the old board ideas... Go along get along.. That is why it looks like they are weak.. Also ******* is from that building, He did all his years there from preload to feeder driver... ******* is also dealing with a race problem.. He is black, mean looking, and intelligent and most stewards are white like ***** and others and hate the fact that he is also the Recording Sec . Remember that is a powerful position. I pray for you guys in 804 stay strong and reach the membership and show unity.... Support them..

    If what you say is true then the new slate will have problems without the stewards support?
