Is anyone going to step up and address the issues of the actions from the City Council and City Manager? The RPPA/Teamsters have been collecting money hand over fist for years now. The Teamsters brought in agencies saying how great they are. The agencies worked a 30 year retirement and when the Teamsters came in the City passed a 25 year retirement and eventually a 20 year retirement. I thought that was supposed to happen here. NOTHING is happening. Oh wait, we HAVE to go to the meetings to bring up the issues. Nothing is getting done! NOTHING! Why do we even have a Union...oh wait....the legal representation. That is the only benefit I see. All Union members that were on the board for years have been promoted or transferred to positions they wanted (only when they stepped down from the Union Board)...Take a look for yourself at who the former board members were and where they went in their careers.
All City departments need to come together and collaborate an approach to the way the City is treating its employees.
The Unions need to press the City Council, City Manager, and Department Heads for answers (on the record).
If the RPPA keeps going the way it is going by not doing anything, membership is going to start to dwindle. Mark my words.
