Back In Action's been a few weeks since my last post.  I've been tied up in contract negotiations in Eastern Kentucky, where management is utilizing what I like to call The Crystal Ball Theory.  That's when your company has made money, but you think you may possibly not make as much money, so let's punish the workers based on hypotheticals.  You'd think I'm joking, but I'm not. 

That aside, it's been a crazy world in the labor community in the last month.  I got to be a part of collecting a record number of petitions to get a referendum on Ohio Senate Bill 5.  I'm preparing for officer elections next month, which is one of my favorite parts of the union business - democracy in action, and to top it all off, my fellow SEIU/1199 WV/KY/OH staff members made history by ratifying our 1st staff union contract.  I'll be sure to have a lengthy post on that tomorrow.

Enough with the lull in posts, I'm back in action!

In Solidarity,
