Now our members are smart enough not to do that but the fact remains it is within our power and WE decide we decide within the law what health coverage we will have , what our retirement will look like and whatever way our money will be spent ,not some fat ass corporate lackey who's only concern is his chicken shit little job and making a bunch of greedy stockholders rich on the backs of the people who get the job done
Our contractors LIKE this system our union works and it has worked well for over a hundred years . That is simply the fact , and no amount of arguing over minutiae of how much we control a few nickels and dimes is going to change that
OJFC. Who do you think you're fucking shitting here with this lame attempt at an ad hoc rescue? Here's what you said:
The total wage package is just under $100 no benefits are provided by our employers . The distribution of these monies are determined by the membership . No money is distributed in any manner that has not been decided upon and voted on in an election open to all members . If the members decided to take every penny of that $ < 100 home on a paycheck that is of no concern to our employers.
Your employers would sure as shit give a fuck when they got slapped with a penalty on the entire payroll as you dumb fucks "decided" to take 100% of that figure home in the form of a pay cheque.
We done yet or you want to embarrass yourself more? Even your fucking framing is wrong as it's not " minutiae of how much we control a few nickels and dimes" but rather over $17 an hour per your own fucking document!
