AT AA we wish we had that problem !!!And soon we will.
Thank You for your input Brian (<-ACTUAL AMFA Represented member). Shouldn't be long and Informer (<--Charter Member Never Been a Full Fledged Member) & Co. should be here throwing the "Liar" and "You Don't Know what You are talking about" Soon.As a current member I have to say THIS IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY!!!!
I'm not trying to take anything away from you TSH (ACTUAL former AMFA Represented Member). It just seems that everyone that has an opinion that does not fall into the AMFA Posiitive column gets ridiculed etc. That is why I point out what I do.
I offered my take on this because there are some posts here that are more outlandish than factual. Did we have recalls in AMFA? Yes. Were they happening everyday? No. Was there cases of politic based infighting Yes, but no more so than in the ibt or IAM. Just as example under the ibt here in SFO during the latest international election one of our Chief stewards reported on one of our BAs who later under investigation was found guilty of election violations.....does that mean its happening every day? No.
I have no problem with what you pointed out AC Tynker. I know there are those out there that will never see AMFA the way that I and others do. I accept that.
the BA inadvertently, unknowingly, or mistakenly left some campaign material for delegates to the national convention on the same table as the sign in sheet for a monthly meeting.
the person who turned in the BA (and did so for political purposes), I would like to point out that he did not act alone. There was also another person who was behind the scenes and trying to create an internal campaign of his own to overthrow some of the elected officers of the Local.
