I like your timeliness and the fact that I find things here I don't find elsewhere. Thanks.

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.

This is a great resource. This site is used by me before any other resource. Information availability is plentiful and extremely useful. I consider this site as a must have in HR tool kits.

Union Members Not Happy With Their Leader

In an interesting side bar to this week’s elections, a survey by conducted by long-time pollster Frank Luntz indicated that the majority of union members are dissatisfied that their union leadership chose to spend so much dues money on the political campaigns. Among the findings:

• 60 percent of union members oppose their union bosses’ political spending in the 2010 midterm elections
• 60 percent believe that a mostly even balance of power between Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill is best for America
• 59 percent of union membership would actually vote to replace their own “union leadership” if given a secret ballot election to do so
