    THIS is my thought on our union it is only as strong as our members. We as members need to take a stand and 32000 of us need to have a rally in washington take our message to hoffa and the country.any feedback on how organize this?

    Very difficult to coordinate. But I like the way you think.

    Sounds terrific, but you can't even get good attendance at local union meetings much less at a rally in Washington.

    Besides the obvious draw of beer drinking. We couldn't get enough people for a bowling team.

    Depends on the Local, but overall, you're right.

    Gee, I would have thought that beer drinking would have been more than enough reason. How times have changed!

    For a sack of ten White Castles and a cold brew I'd even attend a woman's club meeting. I have no shame. :hysterical:

    If you provided transportation, food and comfy surroundings for the protest venue, about HALF the membership would participate.

    Do you care about the guys under you on the list? Really? Leave the number 1's alone then. They've earned it.

    When someone says "time to stand together" they usually mean "everyone agree with me".
    What are we standing for? Also (my opinion) I would say seniority is accrued and not earned.

    I wish I had the chance to introduce myself to you Lager, #1 man for many years and helped and fought for many junior men while I was a steward. 39 years now retired and still know what it is like to be a real teamster!

    If the doors close, my experience has been those top guys have real trouble at the BOTTOM of their new employers. Often they are below people they mistreated at the old company. Should be a wake-up call now for all to treat each other with respect. But it won't happen....
