Let's Get Organized And Talk About A Meeting
People have been asking to discuss having a meeting. With EVERYBODY there. I will start the discussion:
First of all I would like to welcome all of the management people reading this. Just so you know, it doesn't matter if you know any of this. In fact, used in the wrong manner it would violate Federal Labor law for you to get involved in it in ANY way.
I think that we need to have a meeting with everyone invited and really look at what the group as a whole wants and expects. We need to have questions asked and questions answered so EVERYONE understands the great opportunity in front of each and every one of you.
The meeting is important and if it needs to be at night or day - we are ready to help it happen. The group needs it to see the power they have TOGETHER. And you can ask us anything you would like and all hear the answers at the same time.
So here is an idea:
LOCATION: The IBEW Local 363 Building location is a perfect place for the meeting. It is located just south of Woodbury Commons at the same exit. From the NYS Thruway Newburgh toll booth it is just 20 minutes to the building going south.
The address is: 67 Commerce Drive South, Harriman, NY 10926
We have a meeting hall that can hold over 500 people and also a lecture room that is available to us ANYTIME. Parking is available for that same amount of people. It would be great for everyone to see what 363 is all about.
Commerce Drive South has only three businesses on it - we are at the end of that road. Actual directions to follow if we choose to meet there.
DATE: We can make the date any day including a Saturday or Sunday if that works out best.
Would meeting on Sunday evening be a time that EVERYONE could meet at the same time? That would be the best way to meet - if it is even possible.
SHIFTS: We will set the meetings at a time that allows everyone no matter what shift they work to attend.
NOTICE: We will post it here loud and clear what day and time it will be.
POLICE: On the night or day of the meeting I will notify the Harriman police that we are having a meeting I will ask them to keep an eye on our road for any "management looking" people. The police don't like people hanging around, parking around and loitering on their streets here either.
Managers: Remember it is a Federal Offense to spy on a union meeting. Our construction apprentices will be outside and on the street looking for you and they would love to catch you breaking the law. They might even get a reward for helping out and snapping your picture.
So let's discuss having a meeting right here. WHAT IS YOUR IDEA? DO YOU HAVE A BETTER PLACE TO MEET? LETS TALK.
