Trade Unionist?


     My father used to say, "...people can convince themselves of anything, even if it's wrong!" and to that I would add, "Just because you have the power to do something, doesn't mean you should!"  As trade unionists we are under constant attack from a multitude of sources that are trying to destroy us, which makes it especially distressing when conflicts arise within our ranks and we begin to destroy ourselves, or as President Abraham Lincoln said, "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
