    This ‘case’ is finally in the spring 2018 issue of ’ our’ IBT magazine..Just not the I DO’s final decision that was rendered at the end of December 2017,(due to press lag times.).
    This lack of general knowledge is CRUCIAL to making INFORMED DECISIONS. [elections-]
    Why I quickly became a member of TDU..,not being soley reliant on the carefully managed flow of what should be general KNOWLEDGE.
    Having the filter of a organization that is ‘Corrupt top down’., (to quote the IRO’s previous assertions) can have tremendous effects on the performance of OUR bargaining units.
    Color me impatient..but this was primarily over tickets to a after Super bowl (2013) elitists party the perp , was too corrupt to purchase with a income of $341,000 !!
    A extremely important election has come & gone with a preseved status quo ( incorrigible).
    Has any REAL PROGRESS been made in reforming the IBT?

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As the country honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember his often ignored contributions to the labor movement. Dr. King understood the ties between labor rights and civil rights. He gave his life while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He spoke firmly against right-to-work laws, saying that β€œin our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as β€˜right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.”
