"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.

»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 !

There is no one who is forced to join a union ! That is just more of the republican lies that they use to demean the unions ! Every person has a choice whether to work union or not ! Now if you want to enjoy the benefits that union jobs offer like better pay and better work conditions and better benefits then maybe that would make your choice a little easier ! But the fact remains , theres no one holding a gun to your head , you choose ! Work union or not !

New Stewards Take Note!

You were just elected as steward for your section or work area. Congratulations. Today is the first day of your new life. With that title comes the important responsibility of defending the union and it’s members.

"And by the way , you just proved my point , stewards are appointed by the union committee NOT ELECTED" !

Ohwiseone

"And yes they are appointed by the union committee and NOT ELECTED" !!

Many job sites are closed and if you want to have a job there, you MUST join the union, THIS is different from the UNION trades where you go form job to job. CLOSED shops require your dues.

Clearly I would not have been ELECTED lol STEWARD in the IAM if I didn't represent my guys.

I suppose that is why Unions are on the decline as they are, the AMERICAN PEOPLE reject the socialist left and the UNION BOSSES and USEFUL IDIOTS that support that agenda

But sadly the truly stupid think that all people that are required to join the union as a condition of employment should walk lock step with the GIMME crowd

They rejected NAFTA although our BA told us we should vote for CLINTON and our dues went to support the guy against OUR WILL

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 !
