Conway’s anti-union propaganda
Conway is not doing a very good job with their anti-union propaganda. They sit us down read off a memo to tell us how bad unions are. They tell us that in negotiating a contract, we start from scratch. That the union could negotiate low wages, terrible benefits (they already are), and less job protections (we don't have any). Then they bring up that unions have been on a decline since the 1980's but don't go into detail of why. They don't mention how deregulation of the industry gutted protections that were in place to stop these greedy bastards. Then they go to their story about Conway Eastern, also known as Penn Yan Express which was a union carrier that Conway purchased and then shut down. A purchase that was made solely to acquire the properties and equipment. When we ask questions or make statements to counter them, they sit their twiddling their thumbs and say they aren't experts on unions. So, if they don't have the knowledge to answer a few simple questions, how are we supposed to believe their lies???? The company should get a refund from their union busters. Looks like they tried to save a few bucks and went with the cheapest union busters.
