Well look like they pushed this one through with a 46% turnout.
What was the vote turn out? How many yes vs no?
65+% no votes
Amazing! 65% no vote and they force it through! What a bunch of ing BS
Total YES votes: 642
Percentage YES: 34.78%
Total NO votes: 1204
Total Votes: 1846
Turnout %: 46.39%
I continue to be disturbed by the 2/3 majority required if there is less than a 50% turnout.
The disturbing part is that we continue to fall short of the 50% turnout threshold.
At all levels we NEED to get more involvement from our membership.
Was this their first vote?
2nd, at least.
Unbelievably. A second vote, and you have less vote. We wil NEVER get a fair shake with the 2/3 rule. I know Carey put it in, blah blah blah. Still unfair to people who care about the future
It is my understanding that they aren't required to even use the 2/3 rule, but the union can if they want?
Did you actually think the Teamsters cared about you?
Pathetic voting turn out screws up the democratic process.
Perfectly fair IMO.
How is it fair to screw over the member who care enough to vote? 65% of the people who actually care voted NO, yet they get screwed over because of the lazy POS who couldn't even bother to vote? I would call that less than fair.
What’d you stop signing your posts with “I”???
Better get in character pal, you seem like someone else....
Members who don't vote should get out.
Make room for people who appreciate Unionism and what and who it stands for and vote.
Vote no if they want, just vote.
All of these supplements will be crushed out, just like last time. Better to focus your energy on the next contract and any elections that come along in between.
Or do away with the stupid rule.
Stopped that long ago.
The majority said no How is that fair?
Any time I see the words upstate and New York on the same line, I freak out.
Believe or not, I believe they do.
Solidarity will improve the Union. Not selfishness and infighting.
