Who Will Own The Room At The Two Man Meeting???

    With Sean O and Fred Z already declaring their candidacy for General President and Secretary Treasurer of the IBT in the next General Election, and with consensus predicting that they will win handily, coupled by their disdain for the Master, it will be interesting to see how many locals and their aspiring politicians jump on the bandwagon.

    Is there a chance, since the tentative Master agreement has been out for weeks, that enough locals are listening to the membership, that it doesn't make it out of that room???
    How many opportunistic officers will see this as an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the OZ movement?

    Either way, it's setting up to be a hell of a show.
    I would love to be a fly on the wall at this meeting on August 9th...

    Cliff"s Notes version:

    Each Local in the country that represents UPS employees will be tasked to send two representatives to this "Two Man Meeting", where the contract offer will be presented by the IBT Negotiators.

    At the conclusion of the presentation there should be an opportunity for questions, answers, and political grandstanding or subservience.

    Then at some point, a goon from the back row will make a motion to take this contract to the membership that will certainly be seconded by someone in attendance.

    This is when the Chairman of the meeting will put the motion to a vote, where the "I's" will either have it....or they wont.

    That’s a lie. A new by with 3 months seniority would have more working days than total meetings held for 20 yrs. #sarcasm
     
  17. I'll stick that bingo chip right up your left coast ass...

    We were lucky to get 2 meetings a year for a while. Now we seem to be getting them monthly. But you missed the sarcasm
