Happy August everybody! This is going to be the best month of your lives! This is going to be the month that YOU DECIDED to become IBEW Local 363 members and get yourself a contract.
Ya' know - without a contract you have NO RIGHTS. Every decision and every change that effects you in that plant is put in place WITHOUT YOUR INPUT.
WE ARE ADULTS. WE WANT INPUT, REAL INPUT IN THE DECISIONS MADE IN THIS PLANT FROM NOW ON!
Well, the good news is that it is NOW AUGUST! And AUGUST is a new beginning.
Strangely enough - August is the month that the company will turn up the engines to FULL SPEED to "talk you out of it". They will tell you that you don't need the union. They will tell you how bad it will be, how it will hurt you.
THEY ARE NOT BEING TRUTHFUL TO YOU ABOUT THE UNION. They are NOT holding these meetings with your best interest in mind - THEY ARE TRYING TO CONFUSE YOU.
In fact, they are PETRIFIED THAT THE 164 HOURLY EMPLOYEES OF THE PLANT ARE FINALLY GOING TO HAVE A VOICE AND SOME RIGHTS IN THAT PLANT.
Ever since we were kids we have heard these famous old sayings. Kids today still hear them from their own Mothers - STAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS - THERE IS SAFETY IN NUMBERS.
The company is using FEAR to get you to move away from sticking together and bargaining as a unified workforce in the Newburgh Plant. And it's not working, is it? In fact - IT IS BACKFIRING ON THEM.
DAN, TONY AND BRITTO WANT TO SCARE YOU INTO VOTING AGAINST YOUR SELF AND YOUR FELLOW WORKERS. THEY ARE USING FEAR TO SCARE YOU INTO MAKING A BAD DECISION AND TO KEEP YOU WEAK AND POWERLESS TO HELP YOURSELVES.
That is what the roundtable meetings are all about - Fear.
Momma was right then and she is still right today.
Stay with your friends and vote YES on August 27 and 28.
OHHHHHHH, You - can't - scare me - I'm Stickin' with the union!
STAY STRONG, STAY SOLID, LISTEN AND BE POLITE, TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR AND VOTE YES FOR IBEW LOCAL 363.
This is OUR MONTH!
