12 hours of pay for her Chief Dispatcher’s job is not good enough for Julie, she decided to pick her own replacement so she could give herself 12 hours of pay for doing nothing. She dispatched herself to the DHA job.
Victor Hudak, work dodger, former Dispatcher, volunteer Sargent At Arms, and current Secretary/Treasurer in charge of all things related to Local 13 dispatch, has been planning this scam with Julie for the last year. When he was not Dispatcher, in order to avoid working off the floor, Victor filled in as Sargent At Arms as often as he could.
Both Victor and Julie are all star work dodgers who figured out a way to work as relief Dispatchers for the year they are not eligible to run, by allowing Dispatchers to pick their own replacements. Neither works off the floor anymore. Check their hours.
Now that Victor is in charge of the Dispatchers, he and Julie are going all in on their scam. Dispatchers are now allowed to pick their own replacements, and apparently the DHA’s replacement as well. Regular longshoremen do not get to pick their own replacements, but Dispatchers do?
Julie wants to be the next DHA (Dispatch Hall Administrator), the PMA picked dispatch hall employee who does nothing but push a button that updates the no-dispatch list, for 12 hours each day paid 100% by PMA. If she can make sure that no one else does that job, she will be the only one “qualified” and a shoe in for the next PMA pick.
Julie is a Caucus Delegate, a member of the International Executive Board, and now she is the Chief Dispatcher.
Julie Brady can do what ever she feels like, because she is large and in charge, and she has Victor Hudak to back her up.
All longshoremen are equal, but some like Julie and Victor are more equal.
Greed is going to rot the ILWU, from the top down, but don’t say anything because if you do it will mean you are anti-union.
Chug, chug, chug….
