Local 251 Officials Can't Rain on TDU Picnic

August 22, 2012: How paranoid of members coming together are the officials Local 251 in Providence?

The day before a picnic organized by members at UPS and Rhode Island Hospital, Local 251 officials posted flyers around the hospital that said, "TDU picnic cancelled for lack of interest."

But neither rain nor the shenanigans by Local 251 officials could dampen growing membership unity in Providence.

Despite bad weather, Local 251 members turned out to barbecue, talked union, listened to music, and made plans to build a stronger TDU.

 

If Local 251 officials spent more time standing up to management, and less time harassing members, we'd all be better off.
