WARNING LOCAL 8 MEMBERS! YOUR ABOUT TO BE REAPED (or RAPED) AGAIN BY JACQUES LOVEALL AND HIS GANG OF PICK POCKETS!



After the complete sell-out of the Rite Aid workers you'd think that the leaders at Local 8 couldn't get much lower! Well think again!

This week members of Local 8 got notice of a huge dues increace coming their way!

See details here

Rite Aid workers screwed! So Cal grocery members looking at another strike! Corporate HR people taking over the Trust Fund!

And all Loveall and his band of merry pick pockets can think to do is reap the members for more dues?

It doesn't get more shameless than this!

Here's a small overview at what is coming members way...

Quote:
$1.50 per week for retail members earning $17- $23.99 per hour; and $2.00 per week for retail members earning $24 or more per hour, effective Jan 1, 2012, and shall "increace" two percent on an annual basis effective Jan 1, 2013


Note: There's no way in hell that enough members will be able to attend these meeting to vote this increase down! All by design my friends.

WOW ! Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Looks like the Local 8 officers will be looking to give themselves another raise, huh ?

So, what year will the 2% increases stop ?

We are asking all who find this attack on these fellow union workers by their own union's leadership as appalling as we do to contact UFCW Local 8's president Jacques Loveall and voice your protest against this financial hardship on the Local 8 members.

You can contact President Loveall at (916) 786-0588 ext 201

You can also email Loveall’s secretary at leslie [at] ufcw8.org

You can contact Loveall’s sister and Local 8 Recorder, Sheryl Percell at spercell [at] ufcw8.org

To view the salaries of Local 8 officers and executive board see here:

His sister? Nice to keep it all in the family.

I am surprised the grocery stores still have workers making $17.00 and higher. Can't be too many of them left.

I've been told that the Loveall Regime have chosen to conduct Dues Vote Meetings throughout their huge jurisdiction on Monday, August 29, 2011 at 8PM in Chico,Fresno,Modesto,Sacramento & Visalia......

Followed by......

Dues Vote Meetings on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at 10AM in Bakersfield,Merced,Petaluma,Redding & Stockton....



Interestingly enough, as the 7 So. Ca. UFCW Local Unions get back into Bargaining with the 3 Big Food Employer's on Monday, August 29, 2011, UFCW Local 8 is Ramming a Dues Increase Vote down the throats of their members!!

UFCW Local 8 / The Loveall Regime once again demonstrates how chicken - shit they really are!!

With 32,589 Members reported on Local 8's 2010 LM2 Report, I will almost guarantee that very few Local 8 Members will be able to show up to vote at the various Dues Vote Meetings scheduled throughout Local 8's huge jurisdiction!

Once again we all witness first hand....Local 8's Textbook Shenanigan's perpetrated by President Jacque Loveall's Regime against the Members at UFCW Local 8.

As we all wait for the predictable outcome of UFCW Local 8's Dues Increase Vote, I thought it would be appropriate to examine how Local 8 Members, with the passage of their Dues Increase Vote, will provide the Loveall Regime with....

Quote:
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING!!


Let us review / breakdown the following Dues Increase information taken directly from Local 8's Voice Of Action for August 2011...

Quote:
The proposed dues increase shall represent 50 cents per week for retail members earning up to $12.99 per hour and wholesale division, communtiy agency, and healthcare members...

$1.00 per week for retail members earning $13.00 - $16.99 per hour and wine and distillery division members...

$1.50 per week for retail members earning $17.00 - $23.99 per hour...

$2.00 per week for retail members earning $24.00 or more per hour...



Here is the language that I previously referred to as THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING. Once again, taken directly from the Local 8 Voice of Action for August 2011.

The above Dues Increase shall become.....

Quote:
Effective January 1, 2012, and shall increase two percent on an ANNUAL BASIS effective January 1, 2013...

The Executive Board shall adjust dues rates for individual classifications to establish and maintain consistency among industries, employers, classifications and geography.


Additionally, let us not forget about the UFCW International Per Capita Increases that will be implemented as mandated by the UFCW International Constitution (Article 18 International Revenue / A.3)!

BTW... Local 8 Members, while you contemplate your Leadership's "proposed" dues increases, you might want to review in detail, Local 8's 2010 LM2 Report which reflects the obscene salaries your dues money pays to "some" of your Local Union Leadership.

DOL LM2 Website Link:
http://kcerds.dol-esa.gov/query/getOrgQry.do

1. Local 8 - File # 043-536
Local #1288 - File # 036-750
Local #1036 – File # 007-779



Let us examine another portion of the document outlining Local 8's Dues Increase Vote..

Quote:
The UFCW 8-GS Executive Committee has determined meetings shall include a secret ballot vote for a reasonable dues increase and dues policy to sufficiently insure the continued financial stability of the local union.

Such financial stability supports vital union programs and benefits such as an additional $10,000 accidental death benefit for active members, continued job security, maintainance of effective organizing programs for the unorganized stores in the UFCW 8-GS jurisdiction and continued effective boycotting of non-union employers.

Financial stability allows the union to combat imminent threats to marketshare, protect against contract takeaways and financially assist striking members.


"FINANCIAL STABILITY".. ABSOLUTE BULL SHIT!!!!!

The real issue here is the obscene salaries, etc... the Local Union Leadership is sucking out of Local 8!

By way of an example let us examine the 2010 LM2 Report for Local 8 outlining their Cash Receipts and Cash Disbursements.

Quote:
Cash Receipts - Statement B - Receipts & Disbursements..

Total Receipts = $21,386,226.00

Total Disbursements = $23,633,055.00


Followed by a sampling of the obscene salaries for a portion of the Local 8 Staff for 2010.

Quote:
Note: Since I do not know the specific policy as it pertains to each individual’s expenses, allowances, etc., I will be using their “total amount” of monies listed on each of their LM2 Report.

Please refer to each individual’s respective yearly LM2 report for their “detailed amount” of allowances, disbursements, etc.

I apologize in advance for any inadvertent errors or omissions and the applicable LM2 Report for each individual shall govern



Quote:

Jacques Loveall = $291,592.00
Kirk Vogt = $233,091.00
Michael Tursky = $221,229.00
Sheryl Percell = $174,395.00
Adam Loveall = $162,269.00
Joe Ambrosi = $188,895.00
Joseph Ciotti = $158,606.00
Mike Fursman = $180,982.00
Richard Glazer = $165,687.00
John Michletti = $108,240.00
Richard Salton = 148,935.00
Richard Crane = $122,553.00
Jerry Hunsucker = $135,289.00
John Heise = $153,266.00
Raymond Kristoff = $150,329.00


This Dues Increase is needed for the sole purpose to continue funding the obscene salaries / spending for the Money Machine within UFCW Local 8!!

That has to be what Loveall means by "allows the union to combat imminent threats to marketshare," JB.

I am impressed at how efficient these ufcw dudes are at finding new words and ways to spin their decades old dues sucking scam. Okay not really, but you have to admire their sticktoitiveness eh.

Sharyn.... Over the years Local 588/8 has mastered the art on finding new words and ways to spin their BULLSHIT!

By way of another example...

How in the hell does a Dues Increase, that is jammed down the throats of each and every Local 8 member, "protect them from contract takeaways"???????

and or,.....

Assuming Local 8 doesn't have any strikes, where does all that new dues money go???? Will it stay in Local 8's General Fund to continue funding their lifestyle of the rich and famous!!!

Probably......????

Sharyn ...... I can only assume this depicts the common reaction from the entire Local 8 Staff as they were told the Local 8 Dues Increase had passed!!

To emphasize my point lets take a look at a side-by-side salary comparison for "some" of Local 8's Staff. Said salaries were taken directly from UFCW Local 8's 2010 including Local 8 and "former" UFCW Local 1288 & 1036 2006 LM2 Reports.

Quote:

Also, for your information, here are the LM2 File #'s for "former" UFCW Local 1288 & UFCW Local 1036 who have merged with UFCW Local 8.

Every ufcw looter on the list pocketed massive increases over a four yr period but none better than a 60 thousand dollar windfall for jackass loveall and a 110 thousand dollar windfall for captain kirk von scumbag. Easy enough to do when the system and those overseeing it turn the blind eye, the word is complicit.
