    I think it would be funny if it’s tied up for three years.

    Maybe because it isn’t our job to inform the whole group about someone’s personal business?

    but it is to promote 3rd party organizations and allowing solicitation inside the property? heck on my building the other day a couple of sups had a big table at the entrance selling cupcakes.

    Selling cupcakes for a United Way fundraiser is a lot different than us announcing to 100 drivers that someone’s spouse/parent/child is undergoing some kind of treatment.

    I guarantee you’re the type of guy who complains that we don’t tell everyone about what’s going on with someone and then would turn around and file on a supervisor for doing the same damn thing if something significant happened in your life. Mind your own damn business.

    Three preloaders who voted yes thought they'd get it within the month "because it's already way late".

    Honestly, I kind of agree with you. It's sad that of all the people that actually need the pay rate to increase, who need the catch-up raises, who live paycheck to paycheck, didn't vote. I'm not one of those people. I could give two :censored2:s when I get my backpay check, as long as it's correct. It really started to piss me off when the most common question I got as a steward wasn't regarding voting, but "When am I gonna get my pay raise?" or "When am I gonna get my backpay check?"

    You know that the sad thing is that it won't be as long a wait as before. Hoffa won't even hesitate to jam the supplemental agreements up everyone's asses after they all vote them down in GREATER numbers simply to protest the imposition of the master agreement. He just has to invoke Article XII, Section 6 again...and at least this time he won't be lying about the motivation behind the members voting down their supplemental agreements.

    Lost all respect for united way when they never even showed up once on the picket line in 97. A heartfelt how you holding up would of been really nice to hear
