(These are paid Business Agents that are supposed to be the experts on reaching the membership and organizing the masses. What the hell are they doing?)
Why did they have to hire another person to do their job? Because they are inept? We are paying them for this???)
Read into that, that they don't have to do anything!!! What is their job description!! Get paid bid bucks??"Hotline
The Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU) is more dedicated than ever to improving membership satisfaction and increasing solidarity within its ranks. In order to help accomplish these goals, the Union has hired organizer Mike Thomas, who works out of the Edmonton office and is active province-wide. Mikeâ€™s primary focus is to help Locals organize their members internally and grow the Union by signing up new members from our Rand colleagues"
Below is the job description of a B.A. (out of the constitution, on line)
(a) The Business Agents shall be full-time officers of the Union and shall be elected by
Convention. They shall perform day to day servicing of the Membership and such other
duties as assigned by the President.
(b) Should a vacancy occur in the office of Business Agent, an elected Alternate Business
Agent shall serve until the next Convention, at which time a successor will be elected. In the
case of a temporary absence, an elected Alternate Business Agent will be assigned to
perform the duties of Business Agent.
(c) Receive an annual salary and expenses established for the office by Convention"
You should go on line to the twu site and read the job description for Pres and vices? What a laugh!! No trade union or company would have such flimsy job descriptions.
*** all cleaned up... Wimpole, you have a funny setting on your posts that stops you from using quotes... not sure how to change it. ***
