Just a reminder for everyone to attend one of the upcoming meetings. All of you should have received a letter from GCC/IBT Attorney Ira Gottlieb informing you of current N.L.R.B. related issues. Ira gives alot more information on those issues than the memo that was posted by management. You should have also received a questionaire for our attorney with the meeting information at the bottom . If you have not mailed it back using the self addressed, stamped envelope, then bring it with you to the meeting, and have Attorney Ira (Buddy) Gottlieb and Organizer Marty Keegan answer your all of your questions, and address all of your concerns.
The meetings are at the usual locations. In O.C. the meeting will be Monday June 4th, 11:00 am at The Round Table Pizza in Fountain Valley. 11095 Warner Ave. (Map)
The Meeting for Los Angeles will be held at Shakey's Pizza, 2023 Cesar Chavez Ave In East Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 5th at 11:00 am (map)
I have heard again that meetings are being held with employees in departments other than the pressroom and that they are being encouraged to rebuke the Union. I am challenging each and everyone of you to bring someone from another department so they can hear the truth from the other side. Step up, and don't come alone.
I know that meetings are best on Thurdays and Fridays, simply because the majority of us work those days. These particular meetings were scheduled to coincide with Buddy's schedule and these were days that he would be available for back to back meeting dates.
These meetings are important and we try to make arrangements to accommodate times and places that are convenient to everyone, if it is not, I apologize.
See you all then and there!
