It's Time for Our UFCW Union Leader's to Share in Our Pain Resulting from Concessionary Contracts They Negotiate

    1. Petition by

      S. Sigurdur

      Canada

A decade of UFCW Concessionary Bargaining has seen Member Wages, Benefits, Contract Language and Job Security in a continuous decline. UFCW Active Members and Retirees, throughout the United States and Canada, can no longer sustain the financial hardship on ourselves and our families resulting from concessionary contracts negotiated by our UFCW Leadership.

As our living standard continues to back slide, our union dues continue to skyrocket and the UFCW (Local and International) Leadership continue to take more for themselves to maintain their lifestyle of the rich and famous.

PLEDGE:
1. Any and All Contract Concession's, including any Retiree Claw-Backs will automatically trigger an immediate Reduction in UFCW Member's Weekly / Monthly Dues Structure including Initiation Fees within their respective Local Union.

2. Any and All Contract Concession's, including any Retiree Claw / Backs will automatically trigger an immediate Reduction in Leadership and Union Representative Salaries within the respective UFCW Local Union's, including the UFCW International Staff.

3. Any and All Contract Concessions, including any Retiree Claw / Backs will trigger an immediate Reduction in the Monthly Per Capita Tax required to be paid by the Local Union to our UFCW International Union

      We no longer have a "Union" we have a dictatorship where unelected employees of the Union make whatever damned call they want, so why bother voting.

      If Union wages and benefits drop so should those who "bargained" for us. Maybe give up that private jet and private Kings boxes, and oh, yeah ,TAKE A DAMNED PAY CUT!!!!!!!!!

      Since coming to this area the Lovell's have raped a and ruined our Union. Other than strike votes, when was the last time there was an actual Union meeting?

      It's hard to negotiate a fair contract when your own pay and perks are already assured. Solidarity Works! Our union "Leaders" should give it a try.
