Julie Brady has done it again. She quit her Chief Dispatcher job, and gave herself the DHA job, again.
Julie picked Melody “Melon” Ceaser to replace her as Chief Dispatcher, again.
Melody has never been elected as Dispatcher.. She has come in second on more than one occasion, but she has never been elected Dispatcher. She dispatches so often, some members thought she was elected.
Looks like the unwritten rule that you have to be a former Dispatcher to replace a Dispatcher, is more like a guideline than an actual rule.
Julie can do what ever she wants, because she has Secretary/Treasurer Victor Hudak’s permission to do what she is doing.
Which makes it Union policy, and to question a Union policy is anti-union.
Does Julie have a set of JPLRC Minutes showing PMA picking her as fill in DHA?
The DHA is a PMA pick, because PMA pays 100% of the DHA payroll.
The PMA has never picked a Dispatcher, or any other elected Union Officer, until Julie picked herself.
This shows that there is nothing so special about the DHA job that it cannot be an elected position, just like all the other Dispatcher jobs.
Julie and Victor are abusing their positions, for personal gain, by allowing the Dispatchers to pick their own replacements, so they can do it, and so Julie can pick the DHA job.
Julie has been doing the fill in DHA job for the last year. She was doing it before she was elected to Chief Dispatcher.
Julie wants to be the full time DHA, and she wants to be the Chief Dispatcher and cover the DHA job to make sure no one else gets it.
Greedy Julie is going to ruin the, pick your own replacement, gig all the Dispatchers have been enjoying, or all longshoremen going to be able to pick their own replacements?
Which do you think will happen?
How about starting with a sign-up sheet for longshoremen who want to fill in as replacement Dispatchers, now that Julie has proved that prior Dispatcher experience is not needed, even for the Chief Dispatcher’s job?
