"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

You can clearly see by the reaction to the moron Munster/Ohdumbone that he cannot accept that fact. He thinks every union member former or current should walk in lock step with the socialist left, SORRY CHUMP just aint so

Its still painfully obvious that neither of you have ever been in a union despite somes claims ! You just spout that republican garbage because you feel the need to ! Considering that union labor makes up just 11% of the workforce I cant understand why you republiduds are so focused on them !Its all out of proportion !Oh that's right , its your republidud indoctrination !

Munster....you said correctly that you "can't understand". That may be an understatement. Proportionality does not even begin to support your indoctrinated thought process. Please advise if it is a thought process or conditioning that causes you to interact in your peculiar manner.

READ VERY CAREFULLY !And it STILL really comes down to this !!Whether stewards are appointed or elected has nothing to do with the fact that the tiredbrain troll/stillher cited local 99 as its own and when informed that that local was in Canada desperately tried to switch to local 1726 in New England ! So the lie was complete and ever since the troll has been deflecting because it was caught in its lie ! Sad, sad little troll ! And only a liar wouldn't know where its local is !

Steward Policy - WFSE/AFSCME~~~ Local President recommends a steward appointment ~~~National Association of Letter Carriers~~~ Appointment of Stewards~~~~NTEU Chief Steward Appointment~~~~ There are many more but I think the point has been made ! The tiredbrain troll don't know sheet !

»Report Abuse~No#1 wiki ~~A union representative, union steward, or shop steward is an employee of an organization or company who represents and defends the interests of her/his fellow employees but who is also a labor union official. Rank-and-file members of the union hold this position voluntarily (through democratic election by fellow workers or sometimes by APPOINTMENT of a higher union body)No#2~~~Because each Teamster local has its own set of bylaws, each local differs somewhat in the way stewards are selected and the duties they are given. Stewards can either be elected by the membership or APPOINTED by the local union.No#3~~~~In the construction industry on union project jobs ,a job steward is APPOINTED by the local area trade union business agent( BA).The union steward job is to uphold union work rules and protect the rights of the worker !

And they make donations to both parties ! And that's why their salaries are about 1/50th the salary of even a small companies CEO !

Yep BERIGHT, Back in my IAM days we watched as our Union dues went to support Clinton and his cronies against the will of the rank and file,, NAFTA is what he gave us.

Corporations pay there Officers from profits. Unions pay their fat cats from Union Dues. They make political donations from Dues. And what about the UAW Golf course in Michigan? It was a good idea until someone found out about it.
