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.

To close to call is what I'm hearing.

But on the ground the electoriate is engaged and will refute the corruption and racketeering of the democratic party. But big money is changing hands and could change everything ! It has been proven time and time again that if you have big money you can buy anything, even JUSTICE ! Just look at Crook county and the lawyers that run crook county. It is all about the lawyers in crook county.

Some one should drop out of the race. You can't beat the colonel in a three horse race. Cook got the best chance the democractic process is being exercised. You've got to Do the right thing.
You're an idiot, too late to drop out the ballot is printed. Cook will lose 2 to 1 to Valone. Chilvers has a right to run and his voice heard. Its called democracy

Lynch, Girl Scout Troop 371 said you couldn't cut it as brownie and that you're just plain silly. But Bubba from County sends his best and reminices about the cold nights and how you two would cuddle. As you know Frank is General President and you're nothing but a minimum wage earning scab. But for you that's an accomplishment compared to your buddy Bradley. Can you find work for him? It is sad that even scab outfit don't want him.

Just a matter of time.

Dan just likes coat tails. What has he done ? Nothing .
Franks fans a beat off

They gotta keep the colonel in there they have no leadership otherwise. Dan can't put a sentence together can't lead a cub scout troop. Ed only cares about special Ed, Tom well the job must be so easy a caveman can do it because he's been there how long now? So the logical choice is keep valone in there. You have to have someone who is talented at screwing guys over and making it look like the members fault. There's really no one better at it. Franks fan your still a beat off!!!

The way to beat Valone is by voting for Chilvers or Cook as a group. If you split that vote Valone wins
