  1. Union and NAME of Local/Branch

    Desi Neurohr’s candidacy for Retiree’s Dept. Dir., after he lost a bid for Southern Region National Retiree Delegate in the last election, piqued my interest, especially when John Richards endorsed Desi. The old axiom that; politics makes strange bed fellows, is certainly in play there. Because Desi repeatedly states his credentials as being a member of the Florida State Retiree Chapter, I was curious as to the level of Desi’s involvement with his FL State Retiree Chapter. According to what I consider an unimpeachable source; Desi attended one (1) FL State Retiree Chapter convention, and was seated as a M.A.L. delegate. That’s the sum of it. Not an officer or involved in any other way. To Desi’s credit, however, he IS a dues-paying member of the FL State Retiree Chapter. And by the way; the amendment Desi tried to offer to the one Resolution that was adopted was authored by yours truly. What was Desi thinking?! Maybe it was because JPR opposed the Resolution, as he did all retiree Resolutions. It demonstrates that the Brother, who may have been a fine Local Union Sec.-Treas., a good Union man, and really smart fellow; is completely unqualified to be Director, Retirees’ Dept. Members deserve better, a person who can hit the ground running. Retirees’ Dept. members are also entitled to know the level of the qualifications of candidates they asked to vote for.

  2. Union and NAME of Local/Branch
    APWU - Traverse City Area Local (MI)
    Past or current office held, if any
    Central Region - Retiree National Convention Delegate
    At the Retirees Conference in Orlando, Desi tried to amend the Constitutional resolution that would guarantee that the National APWU would pay the elected Constitution Retiree Convention Delegates expenses to the off year All Crafts/Retiree Conference in Las Vegas. His amendment was ruled out of order by the Chair because it merely eliminated the relevant resolution language to read just as the Constitution already said! Duh! Just speak against it Desi if you don’t like it. I mean check with your pal JPR. And the National Convention Delegates passed the subject resolution by the required 2/3 majority. Desi, I don’t think making an improper amendment against APWU Retiree interests is very smart or looking out for APWU Retirees.
