I was wrong!

Post  hotwiretamer on Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:59 am

The Bill the State of Arizona is trying to pass WILL affect REA's! In fact it will affect our local, and every local in Az. for that matter.
If the bill passes, it will be against the law to have dues deducted from your paycheck, there will be no bargaining for wage or benefits, to name a few.
We have members at SRP among others that will be affected! Evil or Very Mad

Arizona's Right to work bill, the first of the bills to take on union rights, declares that no state agency can recognize any union as a bargaining agent for any public officer or worker, collectively bargain with any union, or meet and confer with any union for the purpose of discussing bargaining.

While Wisconsin’s law bans public employees from bargaining over everything but very small wage increases, Arizona’s bill bans collective bargaining outright and refuses to recognize any union as a bargaining unit. Existing contracts with unions will be honored, but not be renewed if this bill passes.

The sad part is so many working class people believe that unions are root of all evil. The perfer to lick the boots of their corporate masters. Please sir may I have another.

The Union-buster’s Choice

After a union-buster’s fatal heart attack, the Angel of Death appears and tells him he has a choice about where he’ll spend eternity: Heaven or Hell. He’s allowed to visit both places before making his decision. Heaven turns out to be quite lovely, with St. Peter leading a tour showing blissed-out people floating on clouds as harps play softly around them. The tour of Hell, led by none other than the Devil himself in a custom-made three-piece suit, shows off a rocking nightclub, with an open bar, fancy buffet and everyone happily eating, drinking and making merry. Back with the angel, it’s time to make a decision. "Well," the union-buster says, "As nice as Heaven looks, I have to admit that Hell looks more like my kind of place, so I've decided to spend eternity down there." The union-buster is promptly sent down, where he’s unceremoniously thrown in a hot, smelly cave and chained to a wall. "Hey!” he yells, “When I came down here for the tour, I was shown a whole bunch of bars and parties and other great stuff! What happened?" The Devil just grins and replies, “That, my friend, is what you get for believing Management’s promises

It is getting evident that we all need to get very active in our own Unions. Tonight I stopped at a Luckys ( grocery store) to pick up a couple of items. The store was like being remodeled so I asked the check out clerk what was up. Get this anther food chain, Food Max- bought that property and are going to be opening up this Sunday . FYI the grocery stores here are union and I seen how the packing houses broke the unions in the Mid-west in the seventies. They would sell their property to a different met packer, so now the workers had no agreement with the new employer. So I asked the clerk if this was a union busting tactic and he shook his head yes. So only time will tell how far down the line this is going to roll. Be strong and supportive of each other and we will survive what the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is trying to do!
