UnionMaine

Trust me, I work for the Government

Day One

I created this Blog to be a place to discuss Union issues in Maine. This will be a moderated Blog. There will be no Flaming and no obscene language. No one will be referred to by name unless I have contacted the person and gotten their permission. Name calling and obscene language don’t scare me but I will insist that people receive respect on this site because as Union employees we get too little respect for the dedication and quality work we provide. If people must YELL they must use their imagination rather than rely on simple four letter words. Call some one the product of a matter transport experiment gone bad or the proof of reverse evolution if you must call names. In the future I look forward to suggestions for news articles and I will be posting surveys on line to do with Bargaining, your pay and your benefits. I think that we can get more people involved by asking “What do you want to say?” I have just gone through months of negotiations with some of the best people that ever represented their fellow workers. The “Union” did not run these negotiations. The “Union” provided excellent professional help, but your elected brothers and sisters were the negotiators and the people with the imagination to come up with a good contract while the Union was under direct attack by outside groups and by portions of the legislature. After seeing how much we can do in even small groups I can’t help but think there are many good ideas we have not heard from people before. You can post your ideas here and get feedback here. Please remember that this is on the web and anything you say can be read and used for good or bad by anyone with access to a computer.

I am pro-union, but my ideas are my own, I am not run by the union, and I will present any ideas from any source. I don’t have any big disagreements with my Union, but some people feel that they need a forum that allows anonymous comments can be helpful.

The comment button is at the bottom of each post, it will say 0 comments or give the number of comments. You can be the first! All posts will be screened for obscene language and no members names will be posted without their direct permission.
