Bargaining report #19

This is the report you do not want to skip. i could go on about how disgusting this one is and all the benefits they rejected and want to eliminate. Like JOG and termination pay. You guys want to understand why we need to mobilize and let the company know we aren't going to sit back and just watch them get rid of us like we are sitting ducks, THIS IS WHY!!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE WEARING RED TOMORROW!! Don't just tap a pen or click, BANG ON THE DESK AND LET THEM KNOW THIS IS BULLSHIT!! end of rant. i'd say enjoy reading this report but you won't. so enjoy your day!!
