: Also, I'm definately pro-union, but not adverse to drastically reforming our current union or starting a new one. Union simply means "a confederation of independent individuals for some common purpose" according to Webster's. We have that here on this web page.
It's called a "lynch mob" :0)
> What do y'all think of secession from IATSE? They're the ones who "don't do shit for us", not Sito and Hulette.
Before you create the new PPP (Perfectly Pissedoff Picturedrawers) exactly what would you like the union to do for you ? I think it's important the present union fail at your goals before you create another one to fail at your goals. Exactly, what are they ? If we join do we lose our pensions and benefits ?
> We need to stick together and look out for each other. There is strength in numbers. We could do it with our existing union if the artists would get off their whiney duffs and take some action (like attending a union meeting!)
If you cannot get unity of action in this union by motivating artists, why would creating an offshoot create unity ? Just a thought.
