Written by a current member of our union (yes I am a dues paying member, I did not write this)
John Hunt “The loudmouth” His direct actions are why I am here. The general manager can’t stand him, and the board of directors want him humbled. We need to proceed with caution because he can rally his membership and we do not workers resisting our 10-year plan. First order of business: • fire Peggy Hanson • limit the ceiling on which a union member can attain • cut/consolidate benefits in the CBA looking at the loudmouth and his outbursts at the board of directors’ meetings are laughable at best. It seems that he is playing to his membership instead of challenging our policies. The ten-year plan should be relatively easy because the loudmouth was instrumental in getting rid of a unions greatest power of withholding labor in favor of binding arbitration. Looking over the CBA, there is old language that has not been updated in decades, which should benefit us in arbitration.
