First off do YOU trust the Association? I don't trust the UNION at all. I would only ever go to them for help out of total desperation, which the OP may very well be at that point. You have to understand where I came from 2 UNION officers (the President and Fleet Service Chairman of 514) cut an under the table deal to push a concessionary contract to save their own asses from having to relocate or hit the street when they got rid of Fleet Service at TUL and TULE. TWU has already sold me down the river, in fact they did it to over 100 people. Maybe he does not trust them. Maybe he has just not approached them yet but intends to, or maybe he has but he is asking us to because he is casting a wide net. I don't know. At any rate it is irrelevant, I rather not deep dive this as I don't want to derail this thread any more than we already have.
