So the Union is falling apart - finally.
As membership declines across the Nation, Veolia Transportation gets fed up with ATU 1001 and asks to leave the union.
All the members were asked to vote whether to allow Veolia to leave and I personally heard it echoed across the spectrum, "If they want out, why not let them go?"
Everybody I know voted to let them leave the union.
When we went into cast our votes, there were a couple of thugs sitting in from of the ballots and a box into which we dropped out ballots.
The ballot wasn't professional or objective as you'd expect any ballot to be, like a local, state or federal election is.
This was a biased, propaganda ridden slash loaded question type of ballot.
The question was whether to allow Veolia to leave the union but the way it was worded was, "yes, kick them out and let them fend for themselves" or words to that effect.
It was very hostile, very liberal and very hateful.
As was the air and manner of the thugs conducting the vote.
Oh well...I've not yet heard the results of our vote last Friday but I'm sure Veolia will be granted their freedom from the union oppression.
Now if only they would allow RTD employees to vote to be free of the ATU 1001...that would be a dream come true.
Not only for us but for all of Colorado and RTD customers.
As Always, "Welcome aboard, Find your seats, Vote for Freedom - Let's Roll!"
