Have any cujones to stand up to frank.

A union of yes men does not make a good union, it only weakens it.

An uneducated and un informed union member is not make a strong union it only further weakens it.

You taught them well when your hearing "don't you people know how much it costs the local to have a election" who is "you" in that statement just some rank and file members trying to exercise their membership rights. Ah you did teach your puppet well and don't kid yourself or the members your still pulling the strings at local 2 and you always will be. Maybe John can explain to everyone how to double dip at mcCormick place that's one of his finer qualities. Frank fan your such a son of liberty want to be but you couldn't hack it so you became a Frankie suck you beat off.

Mr. General President, I never wanted to be a Son of Liberty. But I do have news for you , a former SOL has been telling members to vote for Valone and Baumann because they will do a good job for the members. He said that Baumann with Valone will make a great team to make sure the members' rights are protected and he believes that the union with Valone and Baumann that the local will be in great hands and that peace will finally come to the union which will benefit all. Now that is not my words thos are words from a Son of Liberty founder. I like Bill Cook, he's been a good members and teacher for a number of years but I feel that Valone is the best choice for the local. I wish Bill well but lets face facts, Bill doesn't have the skills or credentials to do the job.

Once again Bill Cook, good for America, great for local 2. Nothing against John but let's breathe a breath of fresh air through the hall. John has the best job any one can have being at McCormick place. Billy will do better being an agent.

What about the former SOL that is backing John and Dan? The criminal investigation is done, its over, its finished.

Dan offers no proof that it is over. The Criminal investigation continues. To lie to a federal judge is not a good thing, unless of course he is on the dems payroll too !

By the way Brad, obama will win and yes we have influence. With Frank in line to be the next Labor Secretary when Obama is reelected, he will produce and personally autograph the letter for you. Please leave a fowarding address on what underpass you are living in.

By now you can see that Romney has the momentum, for good reason. Liars don't make good presidents.

Democrats are more predisposed to low. Just like criminal union bosses. When Dan takes off the tin foil hat that is making him so delusional, he can start his therapy.

Dan and Frank offer no proof that DOL has dropped anything. Just like the democrats they will DO & SAY ANYTHING to stay in power.!!!!!!!!!

Never Happen

Frank is under criminal investigation and he will replace Broom Hilda ? That is funny. Why doesn't he do it now ??? He could do it Fast & Furiously.

Delusiona Dan strikes again and has an election erection and can't read any swing state poles. Keep listening to that idiot shultz who is franks idol.

No wonder why unions have such declining membership numbers. Plus non union is getting fed by there thugged up tactics. Building owners are leading this rebellion against thugged up unions who own political agendas.

Yawl need Governor Scott Walker to show yawl how to get it done.

Terry was a great union man always giving and never taking. Yes, you will see that Frank will be the next Labor Secretary, the Obama Adminstration is impressed with Frank and his message.

John Valone great for Local 2, great for the members. A vote for Valone is a vote for unity, strength and prosperity. Vote November 20th to keep Local 2 moving forward.

John Valone will win by a 2 to 1 over Cook. It looks like Cook may not be eligible to run because a fradulent nomination letter was entered. No matter what Valone will be a big winner, so will Local 2 and its members.

The fact that democracy doesn't exist at iuec is known industry wide. They are more concerned with keeping their status quo intact.

Let's remember how fraudulent phoney baloney valoney is...... at McCormick place 10 members working in construction at the west addition walked off the job over the fronts. Did Valone? No! He was concerned about making that big overtime money. He's never stood up for anything personally like that. Judge people by their actions not their words. John not having any action just words.
