There was a time in this country when unions looked out for the working class in the private sector. A type of buffer between the needs of the factory owners to maximize profits against the workers rights to a living wage. Some unions today still carry out that role. 1199seiu is a good example in there struggles to unionize service workers and then there is CSEA. This is a place where thieves and pimps run free, using enforced employee contributions to provide vacations, trips and cars for “UNION business” this along with a commitment to political activity in recent elections that saw there boss Commissioner of Public Works Skip Scirocco win reelection. A boss who just threw the laborers of his department under the bus in favor of confidential non-union office staff. A boss whose campaign manager was none other than President of local CSEA before he stepped down Joe "Big Deal"O'Neal”
And how do the rank and file feel about CSEA? Let’s see
Here's a beautiful story out of DPW,John Rich retired after 30 plus years,the union wanted to have a special retirement party for him,but after looking into the treasury they barely had enough for a pizza,it seems former president joe "Big Deal"O'neal and his vice president Thomas Mcgraw had emptied the bank on some lavish hotel rooms,rental cars etc,etc,etc,......business as usual at the CSEA.”
Well like I said with Union leaders willing to fuck the worker who needs management.
