Highrise members make notes on your employers efforts to influence who you vote for in the runoff election tomorrow.

Time, place, who said what to who, save any paycheque inserts directing you to vote in a specific direction for a specific reason.

Hey burned again, Nice try, but trying to tie Acorn to one of the best Presidents/Reps this local has ever had will not cover the fact Acorn was the biggest rule breaking rat the residential sector has ever seen.

Your so bad at name dropping, you should probably stop doing it and go back to soap dropping.  ;)

Next time you sit down for beer with Bobby or drop by his house maybe you can ask him what he thinks of ol' Billy Boy  ;D  What was I thinking Bobby sittin down for a beer with the likes of you......DOUBT IT !!!

Congratulations Bill Acorn on being the top vote getter from the Fashion/Stevens slate. Campaigning really works I see you've learned. :)

Looking at all the reports Bill Acorn publishes in our local union newsletter I see he includes pictures of crews working on various jobsites. He usually names the members and makes special reference to the Foremen and General Foremen but I don't believe he has ever honoured a highrise steward by indicated to the membership who they are.

I think we should be proud of our stewards and appreciative of their work for us.

I see that the ICI reps regularly include that information in their jobsite pictures. I wonder why Bill Acorn/Executive Board member/High Rise Busines rep does not promote the stewards in high rise?

Apparently only 12 stewards have been appointed in the high rise sector, that seems like a low number with all the jobsites currently underway. It seems the directive from the hall is not to appoint a steward unless there are problems.

This is hard to understand because my perception of a stewards role is to be in place so that there won't be any problems and the members will have someone to go to for guidance and information in order to prevent problems and allow for an efficient and happy workplace.

To be a union and have a provision in our agreement that provides for stewards and not to appoint them is unconscionable.
I love our local 353, SOLIDARITY and SUCCESS to the members in Alberta!
