From my point of view Jon has done a pretty decent job leading in the midst of the world wide attack against union labor. When you watch Jonathan conduct a union meeting you have to respect the man and his abilities. He is a brilliant man no doubt.
The current contract we are working with is a good one, with decent pay and benefits.
Mr Hunt and Mr Heintzman have done an excellent job of negotiating our contracts. I congratulate both of them for the excellent work.
But I cannot wrap my mind around voting for Heitzman/Hunt ticket for one reason, they have been in charge too long.
Mr Heintzman, after his tumultuous tenure at the international, thinks he can just walk in and take over at 757 again?
How can I possibly support that at this point in our history.
We do need a change, and this would be a good time to move in that direction.
|BRUCE HANSEN PRESIDENT|
Mr Hansen has been involved with union affairs and vociferously defended me personally while I was working at Trimet so I know the man well. He is a man that can be trusted.
|MICHAEL CONNER VICE PRESIDENT|
Now the treasurer was somewhat of a quandary. I was not very happy with the work of our current treasurer. But as time went on I think she started growing into the job. And I was very impressed how she handled being sidelined by Jon. She has been through the school of hard knocks and deserves another term in my opinion. I will be voting for Evette Farra for treasurer.
