APWU Maintenance Brothers and Sisters, I come to you with a final appeal seeking your vote for the position of National Business Agent (B), Southern Region, Maintenance Division. Staying the course is no longer an option. We can’t afford to continue on the same path that has led us to this point where grievances at Step-3 and Arbitration are backlogged, Custodial Line H MOU is lacking enforcement, members are being sold short on grievance settlements, as well as skilled jobs being abolished and downgraded. The list goes on and on!
It’s really quite simple…By Changing Nothing, Nothing Changes! If you accept the ideology that your NBAs are irreplaceable and should not be held to a standard in regards to producing positive results on behalf of the members they represent, then we have a long, rough road ahead despite having clear contractual language that protects our rights. When they fail to produce results, then we as dues paying members have failed each other by not setting a standard and holding our NBAs to that standard. So, with that being said don’t take this election for granted!
VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! It’s up to each of you to bring this chapter to a close by casting your vote for the much needed CHANGE that our NBA office is in desperate need of.
National Business Agent (B)
I’m qualified and ready to go to work on your behalf. It’s time our NBA offices start paying dividends on the deposits you the members have made.
Sincerely and in Solidarity,
First Name: Kyle
Last Name: Powell
Union/Local: APWU – Houston Area Local 0185
Office held if any: Maintenance Craft Director 2010-2016
