Contact has finally been made between ATU757 attorney Susan Stoner and Chris Day’s attorney. It was a phone conversation followed up with a fax submitted to Chris’ attorney. The phone conversation addressed the concerns of a recording devise being used during meetings and was not clear if Chris was permitted to attend meetings or not. The fax submitted to Chris’ attorney presented Chris with required conditions to permit his return to union meetings. It also included conditions about Chris’ personal blog site. Chris and his attorney are both concerned about a conditional return and are keeping the option of getting an injunction available. Though the injunction is an added cost and is creating more monetary damages Chris is wanting to stay focused on the actual factual information and violations that had taken place. ATU757 has violated Federal Law and some Oregon torts upon their actions against Chris Day. Chris feels it is important for members to stay focused on the actual violations that is occurring and not allow attention to be distracted away from that focal point. Currently many members have personally voiced their displeasure of the actions that have occurred but are afraid to directly voice their feelings out loud to the officers. At this time it would be nice if other members would step forward in helping protect Chris’ rights as a member and make a clear statement to our union Staff and Officers that when one member is violated all members are violated. If ATU757 has legal grounds they must take actions that are within the law. If ATU757 is unable to produce factual evidence that supports their actions they must yield and correct the damages that has been done.
