Most people feel that the "Union" is the Executive Board, the people who "Run" the union. This could not be further from the truth. "The Union" is YOU! YOU are the one who elects YOUR officials to represent YOU. YOU are the one who has the priviledge to go to YOUR meetings and speak what's on YOUR mind, to let YOUR board know of any grievance YOU may have. A strong Union is only as strong as its members. Show YOUR employer YOU mean business, show them YOU stand behind YOUR union, attend meetings, report infractions by the employer to YOUR shop steward or local when they occur. YOU will never agree with 100% of what YOUR local does or doesn't do. But it is important that YOU get past that and carry on and continue fighting for YOUR rights. YOU are the eyes and ears of the Union. Without YOU...There would be no "_nion"! Remember, Union starts with...U...N...I
