July 17, 2008: Q. How do you know when a proposed contract is rotten?
A. When they use corporate sales tricks to try to get you to buy it.
Carhaulers are getting sales calls, and there will be more to come. Many are getting “polled” and asked directly how they intend to vote on the contract.
The callers are not Teamsters. They work for Contact America, Meyer Teleservice, or another nonunion tele-marketer.
By tomorrow you may be getting “robo-calls” from computers.
So you will get annoying sales calls, first from nonunion folks in cubicles, then from computers.
The bad news is that you paid for this crap with your dues.
The good news is your vote counts.
If you want to send them back to the table, mark it No and mail it in. And encourage your co-workers to do the same.
Get a big turnout from your board. Help make it happen.
