So I’m writing this letter to upper management at work. I’ve mentioned this to a few people at work, and they’ve asked to sign my letter. I’m also going to send it through the the Union representative, because I like to use proper official channels for such things – I’ll never forget what Terry taught me, If it’s not on paper, it doesn’t exist. Thanks Terry.

Anyhow. Now that other people want to sign it, it’s become a bit of a weird thing in my head. It’s no longer a ‘I’m doing this for myself and if I get in trouble for it then I’m taking the blame’ sort of thing. It’s now a ‘I’m a spokesperson for other people I work with’ sort of thing. And that’s just a weird position for me to be in, since I’m usually pretty mild-mannered in such situations. I’m not the one who speaks up and such… I’m just the one who rages silently. I guess things change.

Kim and Marty used to call my passionate rage-fests over the things I considered unfair in the world the Faller Factor. I think that’s what this is, in action.

I remember when I used to think I could change the world.

    Don’t know what your letter is about, but this is a good resource if you have issues with getting and/or getting rid of a union – http://www.labourwatch.com. I haven’t delved into every last corner of the site but it looks like a pretty balanced view. And do give yourself credit for starting the ball rolling on what is clearly a common complaint – shame on your coworkers for not doing it themselves!

    Maybe they should just vote you in as union rep?

      Heh. Not sure why they’d do that. Our current one is pretty good.
