"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

One further point, anonymity absolutey brings out the worst in some, being able to say things that one would never say face to face, either out of fear of a swift rebuke or a right hand. Cowards love this medium, cyber bullies are rampant over the interwebs lol

There is often more projection than a movie theater in here! Lots ok, this is a mild diversion for me and I sure don't take anything personally, but on that rare occasion one can actually have a reasoned discussion, rare as it is it's worth the wait

Another day above ground so how can it be bad, I agree with your sentiments about the typed word. Some come here to vent their anger and actually let this silly little forum upset them, even to the point of obsession. There is so little actual information that human nature is to fill in the the missing pieces with supposition and preconceived notions, additionally straw men are created that represent that which a person is angry at, leading to the obsession. That's my take and it's free so don't ask for a refund ;)

the really important question is how are you doing this fine day?...and i thank you for asking earlier of myself.

Stillhere...things are going well here and hope that you are doing even better. my participation in these forums and sometimes contentious discussions has taught me several things. one....even anonymity does not encourage one to be hosest, remorseful or even cordial when given the chance. i would argue that it actually does the opposite. two...the typed word looses its intent at times without having the additional visual support as in face to face meetings. 3...exchanging ideas, especially when people disagree is a good thing. accepting others in spite of those disagreements is the hardest thing. perhaps thats where some run off the rails when it comes to belief systems. many wrestle and have given up on the concept of loving each other but not loving what they do. somehow many feel that they can't be exclusive of each other without negating the love and appreciation for ones neighbor or forum poster.

Nah I won't give him the satisfaction, just pointing out the obvious once again, those sour grapes are still producing bitter whine ;)

So absolem how are things?

Posted 49 days ago.

Stillhere

And ultimately it really comes down to this ! Deflect all you want but the tiredbrain troll is a proven LIAR !!Whether stewards are appointed or elected has nothing to do with the fact that the tiredbrain troll/stillher cited local 99 as its own and when informed that that local was in Canada desperately tried to switch to local 1726 in New England ! So the lie was complete and ever since the troll has been deflecting because it was caught in its lie ! Sad, sad little troll !

Ohwiseone

First cited: IAMAW Local Lodge 99 ~~~~~~~~ Second cited once shown the first was in Canada~~~~~~~~~~~~~~2nd: IAM Local Lodge 1726

Representing Airline Workers in the New England Region I guess that being a "steward " means you cant remember where you local is !! How Ironic and prophetic tiredbrain ,You cannot hide from your words That's true isn't it ?? This in itself shows just how pitiful your lies are tiredbrain ! LOLOLOLOLLOOLL!! Why don't you just end this lie , because only a LIAR wouldn't know where its local is ! ?

No#1 wiki ~~A union representative, union steward, or shop steward is an employee of an organization or company who represents and defends the interests of her/his fellow employees but who is also a labor union official. Rank-and-file members of the union hold this position voluntarily (through democratic election by fellow workers or sometimes by APPOINTMENT of a higher union body)No#2~~~Because each Teamster local has its own set of bylaws, each local differs somewhat in the way stewards are selected and the duties they are given. Stewards can either be elected by the membership or APPOINTED by the local union.No#3~~~~In the construction industry on union project jobs ,a job steward is APPOINTED by the local area trade union business agent( BA).The union steward job is to uphold union work rules and protect the rights of the worker !

For not being a liar you certainly do go to great lengths to try to diffuse the truth ! Maybe the old line says it best " me thinks you protest too much" ! Do what ever makes you feel better but the lie will always be there and will be joined by others I'm sure ! It's only a matter of time doofus !

Ohwiseone

Ah yes the inevitable "bury em in bullsh^t" tactic, AGAIN,( for the third time) from the serial liar! We both know who the liar is and I can tell everyone , ITS NOT ME !!!

Stillhere
