YOU ARE THE UNION

UNION BEGINS WITH

 YOU 

MOST PEOPLE FEEL THAT THE "UNION" IS THE BOARD, 

THE PEOPLE WHO "RUN" THE UNION. THIS COULD NOT  

BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. 

THE "UNION" IS YOU: YOU ARE THE ONE WHO 

ELECTS YOUR OFFICIALS TO REPRESENT YOU. YOU ARE 

THE ONE WHO HAS THE PRIVILEGE TO GO TO YOUR 

MEETINGS AND SPEAK WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND, TO LET

YOUR BOARD KNOW OF ANY GRIEVANCE YOU MAY HAVE. 

A STRONG UNION IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS MEMBERS. 

SHOW VERIZON YOU STAND BEHIND YOUR UNION, ATTEND 

MEETINGS, REPORT INFRACTIONS BY MANAGEMENT TO YOUR 

SHOP STEWARD OR LOCAL WHEN THEY OCCUR. YOU WILL 

NEVER AGREE WITH 100% OF WHAT YOUR LOCAL DOES OR 

DOESN'T DO. BUT, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET PAST  

THAT AND CARRY ON AND CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR YOUR 

RIGHTS. REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF YOUR

UNION. WITHOUT YOU...THERE WOULD BE NO "UNION". 

REMEMBER AGAIN UNION STARTS WITH U...N...I...
