Special Note: The advertisements above are sometimes from very ANTI UNION businesses (center for union facts). It is a sign of the times where Unions are under attack like never before! They would try to convince you that Unions are bad. The truth is that Unions are bad for crooked businesses and good for workers. So of course they donít want you to have the right to be Union. Donít be fooled, the choice and the future is YOURS!!,....the rank and file Union member!

unions brought us the 40-hour week, employer-paid health insurance, fair work rules, social security, workplace safety, paid holidays, sick leave, and heck, even the weekend!

Remember, businesses didnít give us those things out of the goodness of their hearts, they were fought for and won by past Union members just like you. As they (anti-union businesses and politicians) weaken unions with laws and propaganda, they tell us we canít expect to have the standard of living tomorrow we do today. We can if we stand together and demand it! If you want a good future in this country for your children and grandchildren, thank a union member and support unions!  Again, the choice is yours.

MEETINGS: EVERY THIRD THURSDAY of the MONTH at the Kraft Athletic Club  See you there!

Great Quotes:
Martin Luther King said: "Our life begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
 
Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Sir Winston Churchill, Speech, 1941, Harrow School
