August 21st Union Election ~ VOTE YES!

  VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES VOTE YES 

                                                                         (Brothers Dave Rascon and Jack Strickler)

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

You are once again being forced into an election that a majority of you don’t want to begin with. How do I know this, because the petitioner struggled to obtain the 30% of signatures necessary to be granted an election by the NLRB? How were those signatures obtained? Lies? YES, LIES! How many of you were told that management would change things for the better if the Union were voted out? How many of you were solicited during working hours, in the work areas? Or, were you one of the apprentices that were told how it would look good if management were to see your signature on his illegal petition?

You may have been one of the people that got tired of being relentlessly hounded for your signature that led you to realize that the only way for the badgering to stop was to sign, even though you have no intention of voting to give up anything management hasn’t already stolen from us! You should all know by now that the petitioner and management have conspired together from the very beginning, all the way back to our Organizing Campaign in 2006 and it continues to this day. 

The petitioner and other company supporters have chosen to side with the company and do their dirty work from the inside because the company CANNOT file for elections to decertify your union representation, only employees can make such a request of the NLRB.

FOR THE RECORD: THE PETITIONER HAS FAILED IN HIS 4 ATTEMPTS, YES 4, FAILED ATTEMPTS TO HAVE YOU VOTE IN FAVOR OF A COMPANY THAT HAS DONE NOTHING BUT CRAP ON YOU AND DISRESPECT YOUR RIGHTS FOR YOUR DECISION TO LEGALLY FORM A UNION OVER 6 YEARS AGO!

Why anyone would sign these petitions after all that has transpired still leaves me bewildered! The petitioner and others have self-serving ulterior motives and they are continually rewarded for their loyalty. They also avoid the tyrannical treatment and scrutiny all of you face on a daily basis. Would they get fired for transposing plates like Brother Timothy Robinson did? If they were to become ill or injured, would they have a job after 6 months or drown in the so called “JOB POOL” like so many of our colleagues have since unionizing? If the Union were to be voted out, who do you think will be the first to benefit from such a disastrous decision? And more importantly, who would suffer?

Why do these Company Supporters do these things that work against everything positive we attempt to accomplish on behalf of the membership? We all know the answer, because they have no dignity, no shame and have absolutely no concern for any of you or your families. How many of you have seen the petitioner camped out in the front office with their anti-union leader? They won’t admit what they are talking about because it is illegal for management to be involved in the upcoming election, BUT THEY ARE! With all the time the petitioner spends in the front office, would you believe they aren’t involved?

Don’t allow these anti-union puppets to remove your voice from the bargaining table! Let’s show management that we are serious about the changes we are proposing in Collective Bargaining and strengthen your committee by overwhelming winning this upcoming election in landslide fashion!


In Solidarity!
Ronnie

who else cares ?


now who's being unreasonable?

The union has been accused of being unreasonable a large amount of supposedly frivolous grievances. Now the company says they will not extend the contract during negotiations.I was taught a picture paints 1000 words what I see here is a lack of cooperation to provide some kind of harmonious relationship between the company and the union.

lets do this


Today we learned top TPP officials got big bonuses from banks. We also learned more polls are showing American voters overwhelmingly blame trade deals like the TPP for the loss of good manufacturing jobs. Do we need any more reasons to participate in tomorrow's Teamster Day of Action? Teamsters are calling members of Congress to tell them to oppose a Fast Track bill that will make it easy to pass job-killing deals like the TPP. Remember to go to teamster.org tomorrow, where a screen will pop up and tell you how to make the call.

More Cameras installed in Pressroom

I was made aware of the fact that an additional 18 cameras were installed in the reelroom and they are all supposedly facing benches where pressroom employees sit during production. Be aware that whenever in the shop,  management is watching.  Believe me,  they aren't watching to see if you're doing a good job,  your being watched so that footage can be used against you. 
Big Brother lives in our shop!
