i never said rudwall or swanec were the brightest
light bulb in the building. but look at what we have now. the present president would be lost and he knows it if rudwall was not on the board. it give rudwall credit for working with a brain dead
dead beat union president. maybe you think we should bring back that smith guy?

umwa members should take actions to remove the presient of local 717.

the last 1 1/2 has been a joke.

the umwa president is a comapany porn.

rudwall has a bs degree and is a leader
swanec is a natural leader as well

rudwall and swanec are good candidates to move to the international level.

the international leaders think he is a joke as well as 85% of local 717. lets send the unwa president to the main office where he wants to work. the sooner the better

the current president should resign and stop making a fool of himself.

umwa needs to have rudwall and swanec to take over.
before the current president sells us all out.

Swanec (sp?) was out campaigning with Arcuri for how many weeks on the membership's dime? He stands with Arcuri at our front entrance and Rusty takes ALL the blame? Rudwall has BA in Criminal Justice and runs a machine in a factory?

You talk strength and solidarity for yourselves as opposed to the current regime but you choose to use this trash site as the forum to broadcast to the world that you are upset. Why would anyone let the world, moreover the company, know that people are upset? You won't have me vote simply because if this how you choose to handle this, no one should have any confidence in your problem-solving skills on a higher level.

Take your signs down, stop your slander and stand up for yourselves at the Union Hall where you are supposed to as opposed to sitting behind your keyboard tough guy!

Why hasn't anyone answered ANY of the questions in my previous post? Answer these as well:

1. Are any of the "realigned" individuals" still working making the same wage or are they on the street looking for work? Other than having pride compromised, is the check still there on Thursday?

2. Has anyone stood up at a union meeting and asked for an explanation why select decisions have been made?

I am not biased to any specific person or regime.

It doesn't matter who is President, VP, etc. When you are in these positions you require popularity to initially get the vote for the position but unfortunately, some decisions have to be made that are unpopular and/or uncomfortable. It takes a unique individual to assume these positions by tolerating people's dart-throwing antics. Furthermore, if one is good at a specific duty they are assigned to it doesn't mean they can be good as a President/VP.

Bottom line: UMWA does NOT own Remington. It is a business. If you acted like YOU owned the business, you would most likley make unpopular decisions to ensure your business doesn't end up like the many others in this country - GONE! Don't think for a second should any of the individuals mentioned in any of these posts won't have to make an unpopular decision if they ever did get voted in.

Keep in mind: an organization is as strong as its weakest link!

I wonder how many of us who have time to bother posting our varied and unique viewpoints, will take the time to go to the next monthly meeting? Whether anyone agrees or disagrees with your thoughts on the subject you have a right to give voice to those thoughts. Anyone who would stoop to name calling simply because they do not agree with you is someone who usually has nothing worthwhile to contribute to the conversation. Hope to see you all at the next meeting
