We have invited Dan to come to the meetings we are holding this Wednesday and Thursday so that we can debate the following issue:
"Should the employees vote to have IBEW Local 363 represent them so they can get a written contract?"
The problem is that the majority of people in the plant have already answered that. YOU KNOW THAT DAN - YOU REALLY DO.
We are at a point where you should try to finish what you started Dan.
You started by saying that the people need to make their choice - well, they have done that - bigtime. They want IBEW Local 363. You need to accept that and respect that now.
Don't agree? Want proof? We can provide that throught the Labor Board. Let's call the Board Agent and ask him TO VERIFY if the cards signed are 50% plus one of 164.
If it is - we start bargaining - whadaya say Dan? We can turn out to be great friends - we will HAVE to be for the good of the plant and the people.
Dan - I will be the first to extend my hand to you when this is all concluded.
The best thing for everyone involved is to get us all on the same page RIGHT NOW. Why cause hard feelings? Let's work together. We can do it. Working toward making this facility the best it can be with the people working under A WRITTEN CONTRACT is a win-win for ABINBEV and THE PEOPLE.
So here is my offer and request: Call me on Tuesday July 27, 2010 and we will call the Labor Board Agent and ask him to confirm whether we have a majority of supporters who requested to be represented by IBEW Local 363.
If he says yes - Dan and Sam show at each meeting on Wednesday and Thursday and announce to the people that we will begin bargaining asap. We will pledge to strive to have a GREAT RELATIONSHIP where we WORK TOGETHER and LISTEN to each others concerns. Everything we do will be for the EQUAL BENEFIT OF EVERYONE involved in the making of this product AND for the company.
Call Corporate Dan - let's change direction. I'm in.
If this isn't an option - at least show up to our meetings and debate me face to face on the issues.
