This type of election effects only the Union Security language of our CBA
This is the final avenue that the freeriders have at their disposal to avoid their obligation to pay their fair share. Let's show them that this is a big mistake and plays into managements hands by crippling our Local financially.
Plain and simple, if we do not have the finances to fight management, hire Legal representation or pay our monthly obligations, we cease to exist. That is exactly what management and a former Supervisor hope for.
That would serve both of their interests and ignore your interests completely by placing your future back in the hands of a management team that has proven to be concerned only with discipline of the workforce for being a Union Shop.
We are awaiting a very important Arbitration decision and it would be foolish to throw away all the hard work and time that went into the Operator Seniority grievance especially when we feel very strongly about the potential outcome and it's potential application on future grievances regarding seniority.
Now is not the time to allow this certain individual, with ulterior motives to rob you of your voice just so he can continue to avoid paying his dues. The Executive Board is very aware of the fact that the membership wants the Union Security language to be enforced as stated in the CBA, and it will be.
Please make every possible effort to attend, it is your future!
