I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job Joe Brock and LRI did for our employees. Joe was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and has great interpersonal skills that allow him to genuinely connect with employees at all levels. Our facilities mechanics and custodians were so appreciate of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. Joe also left management with a lot to think about and a road map of what needs to be done differently. Our employees ultimately voted to overwhelmingly defeat the Teamsters 43-no to 3-yes that allows us to continue to work directly with our employees in their best interest giving the us the opportunity to make things right. Joe was a great partner to HR as well, collaborating on the strategy and actions needed to make the union campaign a success. Thank you again for the great service. I would welcome the opportunity to be a reference for Joe and LRI at anytime.

Solidarity vs. Low Low Prices

A Quinnipiac Poll released last week shows 63% of union households in NYC would shop at Walmart if they could.  Currently, union members (and everyone else) can’t shop at a Walmart in NYC because their union bosses won’t have it — and they’ve  been putting the screws to city officials to keep NYC Walmart free.

Not only do union members not seem to agree with their union bosses about Walmart, but there seems to be a certain lack of solidarity on the Walmart issue between labor lords who stand to get something from new Walmart stores (the Building Trades) and those who make their living demonizing Walmart. (the UFCW and SEIU).   Mums the word on both sides when it comes to the concerns of the other — jobs jobs jobs (actually dues dues dues) on the Building Trades side versus the UFCW’s quixotic quest to organize Walmart by any means necessary.

Quoted in the New York Post one UFCW member who wished not to be named doubted the poll results saying,“They said they contacted union members, but didn’t say which union members were reached. What would members of the steamfitters union care about the grocery store unions?”

Solidarity forever brothers and sisters. Carry on.
