On top of having to worry if today is your last day because some Fat Cat needs another house in the hamptons. Now management is writing up anyone and everyone when they can on some frivolous infractions the stress is through the roof and there looks like there is no end to this BS. but wait when the dust settles and the mantle ridge’s have jumped ship and the juice has been all squeezed out The upper and there henchmen will without a doubt blame the mess on us. Due to the fact that business is down and revenue’s are at a all time low You must accept drastic concession’s on your next contract negotiations. What do you think our union reps will say ?

Individual votes don't count. The union that you elect votes on behalf of the members. They may act like you get a vote, but honestly you have no say!
Sign me up for that !!!!!!!
We all need to stand together against the union. Make them remember who supports them. We need to band together, win a judgement that the national doesn't have our best interests in mind. All national dues need to be put into escrow and only turned over to the union brass when they satisfied the members who make their cushy 6 figure salaries possible.
Everyone must vote NO on the next contract they offer, if it's not better than the current contract. It does not matter if it takes them the next 5 years to finally hand us a contract that is better than our current contract. Remember under the Railway Labor Act, contracts only expire when the next contract is approved. If they continue to offer us bad contracts, vote NO and they have to continue to honor the previous contract. Everyone must vote NO or we'll continue to have bad contracts shoved down our throats. The only way we take our unions back, is for all union members of every craft to stand together and reject bad contracts.
