    Believe or not, I believe they do.

    Solidarity will improve the Union. Not selfishness and infighting.

    A simple majority yes but when voter turnout is poor, less than 50%, a 2/3 majority is common for parliamentary proceedings.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    So the minority is rewarded because the majority don’t care?

    Get out the vote should be the biggest concern among Teamsters who care.
     
  5. Most state and local elections would be thrown out in that case.

    I am sorry that your rank and file are so weak. You should be mad about the nonvoters not at the Teamsters Organization.

    Our Leadership is pathetic. At this point they don't even mention that it's imposed from low voter turnout, they simply state 4 more supplements remain outstanding. This should illegal, that they have an opinion on our contract, they are supposed to be representing us with our employer.

    They should be encouraging people to vote, that is, unless it benefits them not to. They wouldn’t do that would they? /s

    I am sorry to have to say this to all that read but anyone with 2 eyes to see and even a little time under their belt know that Teamster Leadership is not perfect but if compared with the apathetic rank and file, general membership the Leadership is light years stronger than a large major of those on the floor.

    Most should be ashamed to even call themselves Teamsters.

    Sorry.

    I don't get it. Vote the original offer down then spend 6 months fighting for a better offer ---then only 46% of eligible voters vote? Must be a lot of brain dead people out there.

    No. The vote carries by a 2/3 majority.
     
  14. They should have used that 2/3 rule to send Hoffa out of office. He didn't win be 2/3 and we had way less than a 50% turnout.

    See how he likes it.

    That's the kinda of talent they one gets when pay is :censored2:. I see it all around, the ones that look bright, ones you could actually hold a conversation with, they realise very quickly it's not worth $10.xx busting their back when they can work any other job for same or more pay and not have to bust their backs.

    Just the other day I was talking with a part timer who said others were telling him to become a supervisor because "I stand up against the higher ups" and the way he wat talking sounds like he is actually considering it...

    They did exactly what I knew they would. That just ended any reason to vote. Democracy is now a thing of the past. Here is your contract. It's close enough. But, hey ya got a raise.
     
  17. I just can't understand the low voter turnout.
     
  18. You was so close on the 2/3

    You are kidding.

    If anything is learned it is the importance of voting, everyone voting. Everyone who doesn't vote should get out and find another job.

    They are at fault here.

    You’re on an island here. Per usual.
