I'm a 14 year electrician with one year in the union. I am currently enrolled in our advanced class. A student in our class tonight has an issue with being called a white ticket. I've been through a lot in my life and name calling is real low on my list of personal issues. I personally do not take offense to this, I can run with the best of um when it comes to talkin sh$& but some can not. I'd love to here what some have to say. P.s this guy was all fired up about this and seeing him like this really made me kind of pissed.

:laughing:

But you must be pissed if you're posting about it.

Never let what others think get to you.

Happy Thanksgiving :thumbup:

No actually I'm kind of bent for the guy. His skin isn't tough yet.
It sucks that our statement says to " organize every electrician" and then you get these guys who come through all of the apprenticeship and they seem to be on a different page. Us non- union men have joined to strengthen our trade and way of life because we've seen a different side and the knowledge I bring to my union is everyone's knowledge in my union. I'm at a loss for words.

What exactly constitutes a "white ticket" anyway?

Every area has different vernacular but I suspect he means someone who was organized in and did not go through the apprenticeship.

We call them 'shake and bakes' here.

They catch a lot of grief because they act like non union guys until they learn the ropes - the big difference is 'we' vs. 'me'. It is a shame because they really deserve more opportunity to get acclimated - perhaps a class in unionism, but usually they get thrown right into the fire.

BBQ, I did not know you were Union. But I should have caught on with how much of a big headed douche bag you are.

You must be the local president....

Do you actually read what you write?

You just said that people who do not believe in the whole "We are exactly equal and nothing but a number" union mentality should be sent to indoctrination classes :laughing:

Is it truly necessary to crap on every thread?
Is it truly necessary for you to post your feelings of the union in every thread?

We go around about this every week or so, your position is that you can post whatever you want but others should not.

Get over your self entitlement.

I got in through the back door, 95% of the members could have not given a durn, and most were helpful but the 5% were real jerk offs. They had the BA on the job several times, complaining I was working too hard, a rat and did not deserve to be there, several refused to take orders from me, one Jack Off (his name was Jack) refused to work with me and left the job.

During the first election I was a member the local president refused to shake my hand until he was informed I could vote. He had reached out to shake my hand and someone whispered that is the scab, loud enough for me to hear, he pulled his hand back, someone else told him I could vote he went for the hand shake, I turned my back and walked away.

I should add the BS was worth it in the long run and it only lasted for one job about 6 months as I was promoted up the ladder while the jack offs still labored in the ditches crying like b*tches.

I answered a question.

You puked out your normal tiny penis'd internet superhero herp and derp.

I don't care what you post, seriously. You are welcome to make as much of an ass out of yourself whenever and wherever you want. You like to come into these threads and say 'Look at me, I am an attention whore.'

Fine.

I was just asking if it were truly necessary, to be nice.

What I really meant was, is your existence so pathetic that you need the affirmation and abuse you receive on an internet forum to get you through the day? Do you only feel alive when other folks are laughing at you and pitying you?

You add nothing to the conversation. You subtract, you lessen, you make things sadder and meaner.

Enjoy your thanksgiving, may it be happy and healthy for you and yours.
