I will dedicate only one paragraph to this. Dan - you cannot hide from the truth - even if you don't want to face it. So much for your fake statement that you want to help the people decide. You should have come to these meetings and given me a good thrashing. You didn't because you can't - you can't make a half truth fly when I am in the room - so BECAUSE OF YOU the people will not get the opportunity to "grill" us together. I was ready and I still am - anytime -just call me Dan.
More important than that is to now make a statement to all of the people.
In order to preserve the community of interest that the workers have with each other and to avoid alienating ANY WORKER - I will not put through ANY comment that mentions ANY other worker.
Dan, Britto, Warren, Dave, any manager and even Sam are ALL FAIR GAME.
Last night I put through every comment as a group without even reading them because an obviously "troubled man" at the late Wednesday meeting complained and said I was censoring the site. So I needed to show the entire group that just blasting comments through isn't what should happen in SOME CASES. But after being accused I had to make the point that a certain amount of discretion is really needed. I hope that troubled mans tape at least came out good enough to give to Dan. It really was some of my best sessions ya' know.
So I will exercise that for the benefit of all of the workers in the plant from here on in. It is something that will help us all jell better later as a unified group.
So feel free to hack away at anyone NOT in our bargaining unit.
I would like to take that a step further and ask every worker who considers themselves a "YES VOTE" to not bother, aggravate or pick on someone who is a suspected "No" vote. Leave them be. They will have to come to grips with things sooner or later on their own. Some people just think different - we will accept them anytime they want to be part of us.
Great meetings today and tonight. Alot of great questions and most importantly ALOT OF GREAT DISUSSIONS.
Just want to make the statement so no one thinks they were too "slick". I believe this meeting was taped right from the front row. I can smell 'em a mile away - I have been doing this a long time. The good thing is that I AM PROUD OF AND BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING THAT I SAID.
So have at it - play it loud.
Just wish Dan could have heard it with his own ears - but he is afraid to debate me.
It's tough to keep the people from figuring out you're lying about things when your competition is right there to expose you.
.......hmmmmmmmm THEN I GUESS I REALLY DON'T BLAME YOU FOR NOT SHOWING DANNY.
STAY SOLID, STAY STRONG, BE POLITE AND LISTEN (read that part good Dan ok?)
TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR AND VOTE YES FOR IBEW LOCAL 363.
