The sad fact is, that I sometimes don't know that a delivery site will be a union site, or not, and it is a bad thing to find out at the last minute...Most of the places that I go to aren't union, and I sometimes deliver to union sites that don't ask for a union card, such as Chrysler...It is hit and miss, and I prefer to hedge my bets, but I am considering resignation from the union, anyway...Not like I depend on them for anything, and with so few instances of compliance checking, anyway, it seems a foolish thing to remain in it, at all. The union hasn't done a whole lot, as far as I can tell, except to lock some drivers out, and call inconvenient strikes...So that everyone who depends on truck deliveries gets to suffer, because a few malcontents can't make a few concessions, witness Hostess, whose employees weren't allowed to opt for an 8% pay cut, to guarantee continued employment...92% of a Twinkie is better than none, as someone said...
Do NOT blame the Hostess failure on the union workers. The company failed because its managers didn't know what the fuck they were doing.

Hostess management's efforts to blame union intransigence for the company's collapse persisted right through to the Thanksgiving eve press release announcing Hostess' liquidation, when it cited a nationwide strike by bakery workers that "crippled its operations."

That overlooks the years of union givebacks and management bad faith. Example: Just before declaring bankruptcy for the second time in eight years Jan. 11, Hostess trebled the compensation of then-Chief Executive Brian Driscoll and raised other executives' pay up to twofold. At the same time, the company was demanding lower wages from workers and stiffing employee pension funds of $8 million a month in payment obligations.

Hostess failed because of weak management, SHORT SIGHTED LABOR UNIONS, poor judgement by investors and failure to innovate.

Of course Mona Lott blames only management. Because he's a commie dope!

You don't need to know if your delivery site is union or not. If you deliver there it is within the unions jurisdiction. The reason you are a member of the union is because you earn more, have better benefits better working conditions and have barganning power. Independent drivers don't stand a chance against the employer and you know this, it's an uneven playing field and that is the reason you are a member, so don't bite the hand that feeds you. Non union member know this and that is why they are against unions they are "Green Eyed Monsters"

It's not hard to tell you are either a business owner that takes advantage of cheap labor employees, or is a thight ass management/CEO type, or even one of the down trotted employees that is being taken advantage of and afraid to say anything in fear of losing his low paying job.

Yeah, you keep saying that, but I heard it, the first time...You were going to teach us why the unions are vital ? Or, rather, you were going to waste your time trying ?
The only way you will learn is to go back being independent, but you won't and for a very good reason, you are getting what you want. Don't fight it be thankful you moron

I don't teach kids anything of the sort. And I don't have access to all the kids in the world. They are going to make up their own minds about what they laugh at, it's called "free will". And people don't laugh at me, I am taken seriously in the world.
In your little world perhaps, you're taken seriously.
If you treat people in real life like you do here, especially in front of your kids, that's exactly what they learn from you - how NOT to treat people that are different from you. If you fail to see that then you fail to recognize the amount of influende parents have on their kids, particularly when they're really young.

If the City of Glendora, California looses this lawsuit, we as the taxpayers will have to pay a pretty penny and a lot of our cold hard cash to undo what the recommendations of D.Wayne Lech and his fathers law firm has created.

This does not even take into account or mention our incompetent City Manager, Chris Jeffers.

That is a story in and among itself.
