It is time.
I'm still thinking that we need another organization to really represent us.
An organization not afraid to look at the Board and say "NO way".
An organization that will go to the edge for us.
An organization that is not afraid to go to jail for what is right.
An organization that is willing to say "This is NOT the best the county can offer and we recommend that you vote NO and send us to arbitration. We have a good case."
Some healthy competition is good. I 'm weary of "accepting" the status quo.
I'm looking for leadership. Are you?
I'm looking for guts. Are you?
I'm looking around. Are you?
Remember when unions would take out full page ads in order to win over public sentiment?
I never liked the idea of unions per se. I always seemed to do more than the teacher in the next room and yet still got paid the same. I always figured that my money could buy a lawyer if I needed one.
I still do.
BUT this is affecting my friends and colleagues like nothing else. I would join an organization that WANTED to represent me.
We are ripe for the picking.
If you are tired of the same old song, the same old tired responses from the same old tired representatives then click on the "blue" word and make your statement!
Maybe, just maybe, you too wanna be a teamster.
