......somebody better put you back into your place.....
Thanks for all of your calls and emails. I am trying to answer all of you and keep up on here too. I will answer everybody that contacts me - promise.
Stay TIGHT EVERYBODY - WE HAVE A DECISIVE MAJORITY.
To the few who are second guessing themselves........
Don't be fooled you guys.........TONY IS NOT BEING TRUTHFUL (What a surprise from these guys.)
Tony is making his rounds and I have a problem with what he is saying to you. He is threatening you with the SAME EXACT WEAPON HE HAS BEEN BEATING YOU WITH AS A NON-UNION WORKER AND NOW HE CLAIMS THAT WEAPON CAN ONLY HIT YOU IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF IBEW 363.
That's Bull Tony. You already sliced THE PEOPLE and FROM NOW ON we want to NEGOTIATE.
He purposely paints you all a blurry picture, so let me clear it up a little.
First Let's talk about what Tony DOES NOT AND CANNOT SAY:
"WITH NO UNION YOU WON'T LOSE ANYTHING EVER AGAIN."
"WITH NO UNION YOUR HEALTH BENEFIT CONTRIBUTION WILL BE LOWERED OR STAY THE SAME."
"WITH NO UNION WE PROMISE NOT TO COMPARE YOUR WAGES TO JACKSONVILLE."
"WITH NO UNION WE WILL NOT MAKE CHANGES THAT WILL COST YOU ANY MORE MONEY."
"WITH NO UNION OR CONTRACT YOU HAVE MORE RIGHTS."
"WITHOUT THE UNION YOU WILL GET RAISES."
"WITHOUT THE UNION I WILL CONTINUE TO PAY THIS MUCH ATTENTION TO YOUR NEEDS."
Tony cannot make those statements because they ARE NOT TRUE!
THE TRUTH IS THAT THEY ARE PLANNING to ATTACK WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE - AND WITH IBEW LOCAL 363 THERE AS YOUR REPRESENTATIVE - Tony won't have the CAKEWALK that he WILL have IF he can keep you without a contract.
It's really very simple. Enslaved people have jobs but have no rights. How much do you really want to have in common with that? I would have to say PROBABLY NOTHING, WOULDN'T YOU?
TONY WANTS YOU TO VOTE "NO" FOR HIM - NOT YOU:
Don't forget there is a REWARD FOR TONY if he keeps you NON UNION.
Maybe Tony gets a cool Million.......must be WORTH A HECK OF A LOT! HUH GUYS?
VOTE NO and YOU will INSTANTLY become insignificant once again - right where you shouldn't be - to allow Tony, Brito or anybody else to reach into your pocket and TAKE WHAT THEY WANT - ANYTIME. AND YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT.
...VOTE NO AND YOU WILL ALSO HAVE NOTHING standing in the way of THEM tripling your health coverage contribution or DROPPING YOUR WAGES. THAT IS WHEN YOU WILL BE IN TROUBLE. When you have no say in any of it. THAT IS WHEN YOU CAN FEAR TONY!
LET'S CHANGE THAT TOGETHER. Let's stand together and make sure THAT FROM NOW ON we get what we should and that we are not to be kept like their children and fed like their pet birds.
DON'T FORGET AB IS GONE EVERYBODY. PROTECT YOURSELF! DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR FUTURE.
Tony says that you can get less if you vote the union in.
Why is that Tony? YOU ALWAYS seem to leave that part out, why? Tell us all Tony - Who will it BE to propose lower or freezing wages?
Not the IBEW Tony. We only propose what the people want. I can assure YOU Tony that THEY will never PROPOSE to make less money.
SO THAT ONLY LEAVES - YOU TONY - AS THE CAUSE OF ANY WORKER MAKING ANYTHING LESS IF THAT EVER HAPPENS. THAT'S ALL ON YOU - UNION OR NON-UNION - THAT CAN ONLY COME FROM YOUR OWN SWEET LIPS.
The difference FOLKS is that with the IBEW the people get to come to that table and bargain how EVERYTHING will effect them. AND Tony doesn't LIKE THAT.
TOO BAD THIS TIME TONY, TOO BAD. WE WILL MAKE IT WORK. YOU AND I.
What is Tony REALLY afraid of?? It's us Tony, it's your canners baby. We the people. The people whose hands you just shook all day today whispering sweet nothing in our ears.
IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE for you to double as the one who warns us of potential pain and TO ALSO BE THE CAUSE OF THAT PAIN.
That is ridiculous logic Tony. The true reason is that you are ONLY THREATENING THE PEOPLE.
EITHER THAT OR YOU THINK THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT EDUCATED ENOUGH TO REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND SAYING MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL.
Well, you are in for a shock because they are educated and they are smart. They want a seat at that table and they are going to get it. They understand fully what is at stake and THEY KNOW THAT a future with no contract is a DEATH SENTENCE.
STAY TIGHT GUYS, DON'T BE INTIMIDATED BY ANYBODY, DON'T BELIEVE THE LIES, THEY WANT YOU TO THROW AWAY YOUR BEST OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN SOME POWER AND SOME STRENGTH....
VOTE YES FOR IBEW LOCAL 363 FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AND GET THAT SEAT AND THAT VOICE!
