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.

You must not know the Contract very well. As a contract service (maintenance) employee you must cross the picket line to go to work if not only the member is subject to termination and if that member is an officer then the union can also be sued to oblivion. John did not want to cross the picket line, he was ordered to by Kevin Stringer and Dana Brigham. If he disobeyed the International threatened to take over the local.

Just a guess, but Mr Cook is about to find out how far the status quo is willing to go to assasinate his character.

Mr Cook should ask phony valony if he has seen any "ghosts" while working at McCormick Plsce ? Oh yeah that illegal work stoppage that cost the Rank & File workers bargaining power at the last contract negotiations.

Is Mr Cook abut to get thrown under the bus if he hasn't already ? You betcha.

Lets look at the facts:

John Valone has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Diabetes research in the name of Local 2.

He has ditifully served this local as President since 2004 and as a member of the Executive Board since 1999.

He was involved in setting of the Christmas fund drive for unemployed members and their families.

He fought for the rights of members against the companies to make sure the members got every hour they deserved.

He worked tirelessly fighting the nonunion who threatened to take our work.

He worked with state legislators to defeat a state bill that would have given most of our maintenance work to the Electricians.

I have known John for 25 years, he will never brag about his accomplishments but without John I can honestly tell you this union would be far worst.

Bill Cook is a fine member, but isn't the right choice for Local 2 and its members. Vote for John Valone on November 20!

Letter sent out last week to all unemployed to think about taking a withdrawl card. The reason stated was that international was reinstalling per capital first of the year. Great brotherhood letter for all the boys with positions secured for next five years. Real nice what happen to caring about them financially.Let alone the fact the elected officers are paid by dues to find members work and press contractors to play by the rules. Wow wake up Local 2 real quick. SAD REAL SAD

If you want any chance at getting your union back vote Republican. You can see what happens when democrats are in control. Nothing could be more clear than what has happened over the last four years in iuec.

Democrats do NOT stand for the worker, the union bosses massive corrution and tyrannical ways, and democracy shedding tactics is what democrats are standing up for. The rank and file workers don't stand a chance under democrats. Democracy doesn't stand a chance under democrats. Your civil rights don't stand a chance under democrats.

VOTE REPUBLICAN
