Western Pennsylvania April 6th VOTE

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by Jonathon Freeloader, Apr 1, 2019.

  1. Figured I'd start a thread on it.
    Since electronic ballots we're sliced out this time, will anyone who is affected by this supplement post the deets on here?

    Really wanna know what a 3rd swing supplement looks like, and if it's going down as a yes or no this time

    Are the Pennsylvania supplements that got turned down already voting again on the 6th? I was thinking it was going to take another 2 months because they needed to renegotiate and 804 is voting.

    Don't know but maybe it's because it was their last best and final offer
  4. As far as I understand, Central Pennsylvania was imposed.

    Western is voting on April 6th by paper ballots. In person, miles away from the related hubs.

    804 is voting on April 9th.

    And 243 is the only one I don't know much about yet.

    So my question is why do paper ballots down at the hall and not keep the online or phone votes going? Maybe @BigUnionGuy has an answer on this subject that can shed some light to the situation?

    Hey lads and lass's,
    Voting will be conducted 30 minutes away from the hub on a Saturday, near some community college. I haven't any bloody idea why this is happening 5 years ago this supplement turned down the contract, (they showed up, voted, had the numbers vote it down... AND IT STILL PASSED!!!!). Fact of the matter is your vote does not count. So don't bring your sorry rear end to the rendevous, come Saturday, stay inside and wallow in pity at this run down union.

    All the best,
    Chap who isn't showing up

    Is this rhetorical?

    This is done to make the numbers less. Us Union UPSERS have places to be and go on a weekend, outside of the hub, families to take out and about. It's Spring, little league games are starting.

    The vote is being held on Paper, on a Saturday, 30 minutes from the workplace, to deter union workers from voting.

    Clear enough?

    The old saying applies: "We have meet the enemy and it is us".

    It would be interesting to see if there are any improvements in your supplement, or will be more in line with the first offer or the second?

    Wow @BigUnionGuy didn't know you had a new username? Or are you to stupid to read when I asked another member to comment?

    Yes I was aware of why they decided to hold a paper ballot vote at the hall, the reason I called on @BigUnionGuy was to hold him to this shameful technique the union is using to force the contract through with little care to the members.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Maybe you're too stupid to realize this is a public forum.

    What are you babbling about ?

    I've had the same screen name since 2006.

    It wasn't my decision to make and I don't speak for the IBT.

    But, I guess this where "the rubber meets the road". We'll see how serious the

    members are about their supplement and if they show up to vote.

    Nervous ?


    What's going to be your excuse.... if people don't show up to vote ?

    So in school if a teacher called on another student you responded? Keep stepping!

    You may not speak for the union but you sure like to give them the benefit of doubt at every turn and sugar coat any shady tactics, like now. I dont have or need any excuses for this supplement we all knew the ibt and company would somehow get their way in the end.

    The members are being provided an opportunity to have their voices heard.

    If they choose not to exercise their right.... it's on them. Period.

    It sounds like you just made a concession speech ?

    Is spring break a good enough excuse not to show?
