The truth is only a small percentage ever work enough hours to earn benefits year after year. And although 100% of union employees payroll deduction goes to the benefit and pension + other funds , they end up being "feeders" of the trough. With enough "feeders", benefit funds are needled out through a priority process, and some even on a 30 day net, to pay trivial benefit expenses, while other medical procedures costing big $$ are actually payed out over time in installments, in an effort to maximize earnings in delicate and broad investment funding procedures. The name of this game is playing high risk investment games, and taking in as much as possible $$ through payroll deductions, while balancing payouts in long as possible payment structures. Whatever you call this "club", you can bet it is a devious promotion to cause dissention among the ranks, to keep them slanted towards each other, and unable to see the real problem: that of the 99% being led around by the nose by the 1%, and the grand illusion of who the true masters of the UBC are, (the rank and file) if they are ever awoken to lead themselves ....
