THE HARDER THEY COME, THE HARDER THEY FALL.
Ok folks. For the next act here at the MCC Newburgh Captive Audience Theater we have a talented young man flying in from St. Louis - KEN THE NEGOTIATOR!
NEWSFLASH------ATTENTION ALL WORKERS: KENS FIRST LIE - He told you all that there is an $800 INITIATION FEE for IBEW LOCAL 363 new members.
The FACT IS THERE IS NO INITIATION FEE - THE COST TO YOU IS ZERO.
Really, what is it with these guys from corporate REPEATEDLY LYING LIKE THIS? It's all of them! Everyone so far.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN INITIATION FEE AND THAT IS WHAT MAKES IBEW 363 DIFFERENT THAN MOST UNIONS - WE HAVE NO FEES - JUST $1 DOLLAR FOR EVERY HUNDRED YOU MAKE (UP TO ONLY 40 HOURS STRAIGHT TIME TOO - NO OT!) - AND THAT IS IT- NOTHING ELSE.
NICE JOB KEN - MADE MY JOB EASY - LYING IN YOUR FIRST FIVE MINUTES WAS A GOOD STRATEGY. WAY TO LEAD WITH YOUR GOOD HAND. THERE GOES YOUR STREET CRED KENNY BOY.
KEN THE NEGOTIATOR will be the star of your next CAPTIVE meetings. HIS JOB (BESIDES STARTING RIGHT OUT WITH BIGTIME LYING ALREADY )is to convince you that negotiating is a losing proposal for you. KEN THE NEGOTIATOR IS GOING TO EXPLAIN THAT negotiating a fair contract is really just IMPOSSIBLE.
In fact, KEN THE NEGOTIATOR WILL ALSO EXPLAIN THAT YOU WILL ACTUALLY LOSE MUCH MORE THAN YOU GAIN BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT NEGOTIATIONS ARE. THAT IS WHY PEOPLE NEGOTIATE CONTRACTS - SO THEY CAN LOSE EVERYTHING.
You see guys, it isn't what it all appears to be out there in the big world. KEN THE NEGOTIATOR WILL MAKE SURE TO CLEAR THIS ALL UP FOR YOU.
DOES EVERYONE FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY READING THIS UNDERSTAND THAT SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO NOT NEGOTIATE. SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE GET IN THE CORNER, SHUT THEIR MOUTHS AND TAKE WHAT THEY GET. IF THAT IS NOTHING, THEN THAT IS NOTHING. THIS WAY THEY CAN NEVER LOSE.
KEN THE NEGOTIATOR IS GOING TO EXPLAIN THAT.
Remember the CARLOS BRITO video that was up a few days ago and how he was SMILING and HAPPY and EXCITED because he NEGOTIATED and CAME TO AN AGREEMENT with AB. Did you see how PROUD HE WAS OF THE RESULT? HOW EXCITED HE WAS? Did you hear him brag how they got to the table and "worked together and came to a fair agreement"?
Well, that is all fake. Carlos doesn't really like negotiations. Actually, negotiations are bad, not good - the video you all watched of a happy smiling Carlos bragging about what great negotiations they had with AB and how they all worked together - didn't really happen. You eyes and ears were mistaken. Negotiations just don't work. In fact, when you negotiate - you just lose.
There is NO WINNING when you negotiate - just ask KEN THE NEGOTIATOR - he will tell you.
In retrospect - Carlos would probably have liked it better if AB JUST DICTATED THE TERMS OF THEIR AGREEMENT TO HIM.
IN FACT, I HEAR CARLOS IS CALLING AB AND OFFERING A "DO OVER".
Yessssssssssssssssssss! and that is why Carlos sent KEN THE NEGOTIATOR here.
KEN THE NEGOTIATOR IS GOING TO CONVINCE YOU THAT HAVING DAN, TONY, CARLOS, DAVE AND WARREN DICTATE EVERYTHING TO YOU IS THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY FOR YOU TO GET AHEAD IN LIFE.
In fact, those AB great and FAIR negotiations never even happened.
Like they said in the Wizard of OZ movie - PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!!!!!!
Another STRONG POINT AGAINST NEGOTIATIONS - Management is so good at dictating that they will NEVER even have to ask you your OPINION on anything concerning your job or what they decide to do with your job - or even your paycheck! Wow! Cool! I'm all taken care of now! How silly we all were to want to have an opinion and a voice at work.
Let's all go home and teach our kids from the very beginning of life that:
wanting to have a voice at work is bad.
wanting the terms and conditions of any agreements they make in life written down on paper is UNNECESSARY and bad.
wanting to stick together with your friends for the benefit of all is bad.
wanting to negotiate anything that has to do with your own paycheck is bad.
Here is the real scoop: KEN THE NEGOTIATOR IS GOING TO LIE TO YOU GUYS. HE IS GOING TO TRY TO SCARE YOU, MAKE YOU AFRAID TO WANT A WRITTEN CONTRACT. KEN WILL TELL YOU ABOUT ALL YOU WILL LOSE.
You don't need to DEFEND ANYTHING because we have the VOTES. Ken can say whatever he wants and lie how ever much he wants TO LIE.
Here is what KEN THE NEGOTIATOR WON"T TELL YOU - if there is ANY kind of threat to ANYTHING YOU GUYS HAVE - it won't come from the union at the bargaining table......
ANYTHING NEGATIVE IN REGARD TO YOU GUYS AND NEGOTIATIONS CAN ONLY COME FROM ONE PLACE:
KEN THE NEGOTIATOR!
KEN THE NEGOTIATOR "EDUCATING YOU" IS LIKE THE WOLF WARNING THE THREE LITTLE PIGS THAT THERE IS DANGER AHEAD.
IT IS ALSO LIKE A BIG KID TRADING A LITTLE KID THE BIGGER NICKEL FOR THE SMALLER DIME. IF THE LITTLE KID IS STUPID - HE'LL LISTEN TO THE BS LOGIC OF WHY THE BIGGER ONE IS BETTER.
YOU CAN'T LOSE WITH A WRITTEN CONTRACT NO MATTER HOW MANY STIFFS THEY MARCH OUT HERE TO TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT.
STAY SOLID, STAY STRONG, DON'T DEFEND ME OR THE UNION, LISTEN AND BE POLITE , TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR AND JUST VOTE FOR IBEW LOCAL 363 ON AUGUST 27 / 28
REMEMBER - The harder they come - the harder they fall.
WOW KEN! WOW! DAN 36,000 HITS!
