Today is even better because I am off work.
Yesterday was good because:
- Let me backtrack a bit. I'm a union steward for C.W.A. (Communication Workers of America). This means that I make sure that the company I work for is complying with regulations; not dicking over people; behaving ethically; abiding to the contract we (C.W.A.) signed with them.
- Yesterday, a new hire class of new customer service reps started training. The union is given thirty minutes to talk to new hires and stress the importance of being a member of a unionized workplace. I have to say that I'm very happy that all the movers and shakers showed up. They did a damn good job of convincing everyone how they would greatly benefit from being a union member.
- I even got to put my own two cents in!
- Georgia is a right to work state, which means that union membership is totally voluntary. No one can be forced to join.
Of the 24 people in the next training class, 19 signed up to participate in the union.
That's damn good. *rejoices*
