Let's get educated about what happens when employees want to organize to protect themselves. Let's talk about how a company will try to scare the workers out of wanting a union. This usually happens more after the election is filed for. You will see that anything goes. Fear, promises, threats whatever it takes to keep you from getting that contract.
IBEW Local 363 wants you to be educated so that YOU CAN RECOGNIZE what is going on when the company, the supervisors or any firm or "consultant" that is hired tells you that the union is not the right choice for the Newburgh plant.
It is all for the company benefit and none of it is for your benefit. In fact, it is all to help convince you to turn on your fellow workers and yourself.
They pay these people a lot of money to EDUCATE THE SUPERVISORS and SCARE THE PEOPLE OUT OF TRYING TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THEMELVES.
You guys are WAY too smart for that. Some of you have actually been through this already right here at the can plant in Newburgh.
Remember the COMPANY PAID courier delivering last minute reasons to not vote for the union last time? Big mistake on the workers part - look where we are now.
SADLY, IT SEEMS THEY WILL SPARE NO EXPENSE TO KEEP YOU WITHOUT A CONTRACT AND IN A WEAK POSITION.
We say they should spend that money on positive things for the workers and NOT spend the money to fight against them. All they want is a fair chance and a say in their job - to fight that is ridiculous and unneccessary.
With IBEW Local 363 we can all be on the same page! Union workers and the company! There is no reason for it to be anyway else.
When we have our union here we will make this company a better place to work and the employees will be more productive KNOWING THEY HAVE SOME SECURITY.
