Turning in claims for violations of our written and signed on the
dotted line agreement doesn't do a thing now unless you add something
to it that is worth reading. Get the POINT!
We have a system we have to follow since it is a Union agreement and
not a signed contract that they can be sued for breaching. They know
all they have to do is act like they don't agree with the language or
turn around like they always do and claim the language they agreed on
is not the way the union is interpreting it. They play these turn coat
and unethical games with all agreements. Then you got the paid off reps
who blow under the table and push side letters in that no one knows
about. Hell, half the Local chairman get blind sided and have to come
back with the usual...THEY CAN DO THAT NOW! They leave their own damn
reps in the dark so they cant side with us or raise hell. The unions for
the railroads today are corrupt and a total embarrassment to unions
across the nation.
Again, you got a claim to put in, MAKE IT GOOD. Put all the articles
that you can think of. Put in any article that even remotely sounds
like it covers the crime they have committed. AND DONT LEAVE ANYTHING
OUT. ALL INCIDENTS THAT CAN BE USED TO PROVE YOU DID THE JOB YOU
CLAIMED! No more MR. NICE GUY!
