The handicappers in Local 23 have figured out a way to get around the seniority language in the new man for man transfer procedure contained in the MOU.
In order to keep a more senior crane driver from LA, who is transferring in to Local 23, from getting ahead of any of the good-old-boys from Local 23, they passed a new points system to negate the “travelers” seniority.
Section 1.8 puts the more senior LA crane driver ahead of someone connected in Local 23, and they are willing to pass a rule just to screw their “brother” from LA.
Solidarity Tacoma style.
Right Dean, Conrad, and Scotty?
The last time Conrad and Scotty passed a rule to mess with a member form LA, the Local ended up with a Unfair Labor Practice charge, which was posted on their website from June through September of this year.
Only in-port crane hours count, because the cranes in LA/LB are completely different? Right.
Which of you geniuses decided only in-port hours count?
What’s going to happen this time?
Can you spell Section 13.3, or NLRB?
