So tell us, what the hell are we supposed to do at the union meeting?
Stand there and complain or bitch(as you retired old heads call it)
about situations that the LCs,vice LC's already know about? They are

what is going on. They are living through what is going on. So do we
sit there in our chairs and go over the same things with them over and
over again. Enlighten us with your wisdom as to what we can do at a
meeting to make the union use our money more wisely to go after the
company and their hostile work practices? If they got a petition to
sign then I havent seen one offered at work. Never get anything in the
mail. So what do I do at this meeting.? I personally would like to see
the union take the money that they are forcing us to pay and get a
group of lawyers with some more balls and quit buckling to the company.
Make them honor the agreement! They take our money and offer a service.
They are expected to do it. Thats what we have LC,viseLc and general
chairman for. We shouldnt have to babysit them! They know what is going
