Let me give some advice to EVERY WORKER who gets called into any ONE ON ONE MEETINGS or any other group meetings. Tell them what they want to hear. Or just say nothing at all. Calling people in for a one on one meeting is where the company is using intimidation as a persuader against the employees having a union and a contract. Know this - and we said it at the meetings -You do not have to speak out to defend the union or to stick up for it in any meeting with the company. We don't want you to. You don't need to. We will do the work.
What you should do is notice their FACES when they are talking to you. Remember those "caring" and "concerned about your well being faces" of your management crew. Because it is those SAME FACES - the ones that confided in you when they thought you were alone - that will bite you later if this just becomes a "close call".
The fact remains that nothing can stop the people from getting their contract if every person here marks their ballot for IBEW Local 363 when the election does come.
Wait until they bring in the "consultants" who will "educate" you about unions, Local 363 and how terrible of a mistake you will be making to do what the American Colonists did hundreds of years ago - band together to stand up for your rights. You have a right to have a contract.
Don't get caught up in any of it. If managers want to talk, let them talk. YOU can be non-committal or even openly against the union - it won't matter. Don't waste your time listening to the professional union drive stoppers they will bring in. They get paid PERSONALLY to stop your organizing drive - but they can't do it without YOU.
THE SIMPLE FACT IS THAT IT'S NONE OF MANAGEMENTS BUSINESS OR THEIR BUSINESS. THE PEOPLE HERE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT ALREADY.
IBEW Local 363.
