While we all would prefer to keep as much work as possible in-house, we realize there is competition that has to be considered. As much as the Association would like to pretend they care about some guy who currently works nites, has a shot at day shift eventually, it's always gonna be more about maintaining dues payers in the future. Of all the guys I hear talking on the subject, most rate this low on their priority list. The Association is in business for themselves, and we are the pawns. Here is where the Association will start their shell game of attempting to reduce the company pay and benefits offer in exchange for an air tight guarantee of maintaining future headcount.SIC Next step, how to sell their wealth redistribution idea to the membership. Look, the company wants out maintaining a good portion of their buildings. The same thing happened with building cleaners. At least this would be done through attrition over years. Evidently the same for Stores and GSE. The union has never been successful at preventing the company from doing what they want one way or another - on contractual issues like this. So, as we sit and wait for the next economic downturn, and our window of opportunity closes for getting anything out of this whole convoluted process, we can thank our unfortunate union leadership for their personal greed. FFS, why not take care of your current dues payers, who are losing thousands of dollars in pay and benefits with each passing month?
