CONGRATS TO US (FEDSMILL) FOR OUR 3/400!
Even if we have to say so ourselves, “Bravo, Fedsmill.com for hanging in there.” Next month is our three year anniversary and just this week we posted out 400th article. Not bad for a phone booth size operation of volunteers. We started this because we could see that none of the unions was sharing with their own local leaders and stewards the latest developments in case law and union administration that came as a result of what other unions were doing. So, we decided to pitch in and fill that gap by timely spreading around the newest developments in order to keep union reps just as up to date as their LR counterparts who spend thousands each year on training and news services. Our motivation is simple. We believe that ideas and information, like the wind, are invisible, but if properly tapped, as a wind mill (or turbine) does, they can produce great power for many. We also believe that unions, like any organizations, need to constantly examine what they are doing today and whether there are ways to do it better. Finally, as we have said often, we are not dispensing legal advice with our posts. We simply want to put information out that might make things better for unions and employees. Happy birthday to us.
