|URGENT! READ THE ANTI-UNION LETTER
"EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED!
We recently were advised that a union is attempting to interest some of our associates into joining their group. In order to do this, is has to obtain signatures from employees on a post card. The post card is a union authorization card.
Signing such a card is similar to signing a blank check. Would you sign a blank check and give it to a stranger? Of course not. But that's what the union may be trying to get our associates to do...to sign union authorization cards.
WARNING!! WARNING!! WARNING!!
Beware! You deserve to know the truth about the dangers of signing these cards. READ THE CARD AND THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT IT.
HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT A UNION AUTHORIZATION CARDS...
1. What is an authorization card? It is a legal binding document. By signing one, you are giving away your rights to speak for yourself, and giving it to the union to act as your legal bargaining agent. It's a power of attorney; it is like a blank check...
2. What happens if I sign a card? If the union gets enough signed cards, an agency of the federal government know as a National Labor Relations Board could schedule an election. Sadly, in this case, employees could become represented by a union without having any choice in the matter...That's scary and not fair.
3. What should I do if asked to sign? While you have the right to sign, you have the same right not to... don't do anything with fear, or jump into a quick decision... Ask the union questions about union dues, fees, fines, assesments, strike records, and every other question you may have. Anything at all you're not clear on. If you do, you will realize that you should not sign an authorization card.
There are many tricks union folks will use to get you to sign--like telling you that others have signed and that your fellow employees are interested in a union, or it's not a big deal. Not so! If you have any questions, please feel free to talk with Lee, David, Angel, Ken, or your District Manager, Bill Simms or your Human Resources Manager, Jill Vogel.
PLEASE DON'T SIGN A CARD!!!"
