We have these questions - there is still no response. I was wondering if you could give your answers to the people in the next meeting?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company promise to let us keep what we have?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company promise to never cut our benefits?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company promise to never cut our wages?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company promise not to eliminate positions?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company promise we won't ever lose anything we have from now on ?
If we don't choose IBEW Local 363 will the company ever change any working conditions we have now such a breaks and breaktimes, lunch times and other work rules without our input?
THE FACT IS THAT THE COMPANY WON'T TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT ANY OF THESE THINGS. .........whyyyyyyy???
Because they want to be able to change them and or take them away at their will.
That is why you need a contract. With a contract, they will still want to change things BUT the difference is that....
WITH A CONTRACT - you are at the table helping to devise the changes.
WITHOUT A CONTRACT - you have no input and if the change hurts - so be it.
NOTHING THE COMPANY CAN SAY CAN CHANGE THE FACT THAT HAVING A CONTRACT IS THE MOST INTELLIGENT CHOICE.
This is really not the HUGE complicated issue the company makes it out to be in their anti-union meetings.
It's not about what I get paid either. That's a smokescreen just showing that they think you are ALL idiots. DO THEY THINK YOU ARE SO SHALLOW MINDED THAT YOU WOULD GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING BECAUSE I MAKE TOO MUCH? - GOOD TACTIC DAN. Although I will be PSSd if Dan makes more than I do. I know I work 100 times harder than him. If I was Britto he would be fired right now for playing around with this and not blowing production off the charts.
This is going to turnout to be great for everybody! Even Dan, if he is still here. We will help finetune this plant and make it better than ever!
We will just do it as a union plant, that's all.
STAY STRONG, STAY SOLID, LISTEN AND BE POLITE, TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR AND THEN JUST VOTE YES FOR IBEW LOCAL 363.
