Jerry Green should not hold the post as president.He is not for us he is for him self and his officers.He spends union money as it is his own,The dues are to educate the workers not to spend on trips to AC or Vegas,
Jerry lost the 2000 election by hundreds of votes but asked for a recount and the next day won the votes were locked away in a safe at the union hall and like magic he won

Jerry Green is a useless piece of garbage. He does not represent any union official that I have met. He does a disservice to the proud memory of the Steelworkers in Bethlehem. He conveniently arranged to have a room named after him after taking down the name of his predecessor. I am surprised there is not a brass pole in that room for dancers. Green is what is wrong with unions today. He is a farce and a phony. For anyone to go around with a nickname like "hot tub" tells you he has no class. Just ask the nurses at Gracedale. Did he actually work for Bethlehem Steel???

Yea and it is clowns like you who ruined the company. I know because my dad was a vice president until he retired and lost his pension and everything else because the company went bankrupt. Moreover I also have experience having worked in the Bethlehem plant during my summers in college. I saw nothing but overpaid lazy people who didn't care one twit about the company.

Jerry Green is a two-faced, bottom feeder, period. I’m glad to see local residents are aware of this phony! Green will back stab anybody for a U.S.W.A. staff job, we all know that. Wake up Lehigh Valley and see what a phony Jerry Green really is!

The rest of us don't even have to directly comment. Jerry's boys will do it for him.

He sounds EXACTLY like the union leader thugs we had at our UMW plant! Lazy, always whining, with a permanent angry scowl, and always looking for a way out of work or slacking to make someone else do the job.
