What do the union reps do when the membership is solidly against the agreement?
Simple, They Lie. Stretch the truth?
Removal of Cash Overtime has NO Exceptions per City Department as written.
Special Events where the an organization pays All Costs, with NO Fee Waiver are the only way.
Some people who share MOU’s are getting told they are exempt.
I looked over the Coalition agreement, and found no section entitled Exempt Employees, No section saying Employees in the following classifications will be exempt.
I’ll break it down like this: One employee in the class of Heavy Duty Truck Operator who regularly operates a Tow Truck will get 5%, guess what, if your not that one employee you don’t qualify, now the union is trying to convince everyone they qualify for overtime.
This is pure desperation, no employee should fall for it, we are in hard times, but if we don’t take our licks now next year we will have this terrible contract, an entire year of missed colas, and be looking at a worse situation.
Remember, all your voting on is what is written, everything else is an empty promise.
