A luxury location - two thousand invited delegates - a handful of high profile biz-union friendly guest speakers - a shit-load of over-paid union heads and undoubtedly tens of thousands of union dues dollars later - UFCWs' International Convention 2013 comes to a close and fades into the annals of union history. Or will it?

Read the rest

UFCW wOOwOO.

A message for UFCW about unity

Because of all the zeros involved I was afraid to do the math on this. The Local estimate was scary enough. Anyway, I was waiting for someone else to come along and post how much more money the UFCW IU will be sucking up once the per cap hike takes on a life of it's own.

Sans the many, many zeros, here's my try:

("1.3 million" x $1.50) x 12mos = ?

or

($1.95 million) x 12mos = ?

How close am I? Either way, I do know it shakes out to be one big ass raise number no?

As we follow UFCW Expected to Rejoin AFL-CIO, here is an article that I thought was right on point with this thread!
