Once again, this is the International way of organizing. The whistle blowing just alienates us from the community we're trying to get on our side. But this is what they teach in Vegas. Maybe this works elsewhere. (I doubt it, since we have lost about a half million members nationwide, I believe) Our organizing department is a blatant FAILURE. We would actually be better off without any organizers and without any organizing dept. Every one of them has drank the kool-aid and is afraid to tell them how stupid their strategy is. Because if they close the organizing dept, they would lose their CARS and their no-result, but making more than they could ever dream of working with a skilsaw and hammer, JOBS. And all the higher ups, to a man, are afraid. Toe the party line and get to keep your overpaid, produce nothing job. It will never change. No one at the D.C. will ever MAN-UP and demand change. NEVER. They might lose their job. When will we get a union leader who is NOT AFRAID TO LOSE HIS JOB? Willing to do the right thing for the right reasons, for the men and women of this union? As that famous General once said, "When circumstances demand action, and men fail to act, due to ineptitude or cowardice, we are doomed." Where else can you squander millions of dollars and you don't have any results. And that's with a federally appointed review officer in the house. Can you imagine what would go on when he leaves? Director of donuts? Department of strategic planning and catering for meetings? Ad-hoc committee for institution of carpenter work clothes fashion rules?
